Simulating with Aimsun Next

8-10 July 2019, Barcelona

Simulating with Aimsun Next, Barcelona

Sign up now for this three-day training course in central Barcelona, from Monday 8 July to Wednesday 10 July, 2019.

This course is aimed at new users of Aimsun Next Professional edition who want to learn about simulation at the microscopic and mesoscopic level. You experienced trainer will take you all the way through the workflow of a typical project, from editing to traffic management, scenarios, outputs and calibration. There are hands-on exercises every step of the way to make sure you have mastered the basic concepts and you should finish this course ready to start experimenting with Aimsun software.

Take it further!

Users who want more in-depth knowledge can combine this course with our two-day course on multi-resolution modeling and calibration that immediately follows, in the same location, on Thursday 11 July.

If you want to attend both courses, there’s no need to fill out separate forms, just tick both boxes in the registration form below.
