Simulating with Aimsun Next

19-21 November 2018, Barcelona

This three-day, hands-on Aimsun Next training course will be held in English from Monday 19th November to Wednesday 21st November 2018 at the Aimsun head office in Barcelona.

The course is aimed at both new users and users who wish to refresh or extend their skills in microscopic and mesoscopic simulations.

The course will be followed by a more advanced training session on “Multi-resolution modeling and calibration”; the two courses can be attended together or separately.
