Simulating with Aimsun Next, Barcelona

Sign up now for this three-day training course in central Barcelona, from Monday 4 November to Wednesday 6 November, 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. Your 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 one-day course on travel demand modeling that immediately follows, in the same location, on Thursday 7 November 2019.

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.
