Trans-disciplinary studies and experimentations of dynamic and complex transportation systems: on demand transportation, car-pooling

System key words - Trans-disciplinary studies and experimentations of dynamic and complex transportation systems: on demand transportation, car-pooling, concealing combinatory algorithm with ground realities, job realities, new hot topics (infomobility, multimodality, instantaneity of offers, immediately of operation, ICT). Combinatorial key words - Dynamic N-TSP/DARP split n PU-m D with TW, variable capacities of vehicle fleet and other criteria among dynamic depots, operational politics, QoS oriented incitative politics, minimizing call-backs, ecolometry, ... Others dimensions, being taken in account should be discussed as service guaranty, certification, implicit and contextual information. These different aspects will be describe through the 10 late years biography, animation of networks dedicated to transportation system, especially flexible transportation system and dynamic carpooling. I will end by presenting key points of interest for possible interreg project : sure and dynamic home to work cross-boarder displacements, integrating dynamic carpooling within a public and global transportation offer.


Dr Philippe Canalda got M.Sc. and Ph.D. Degrees in computer science from the University of Orl�ans (France) in 1991 and 1997, respectively. He worked at INRIA Rocquencourt from 1991 to 1996 on the automatic generation of optimizing and parallel n-to-n cross-compilers. From 1996 to 1998, he worked as Research Engineer in the Associated Compiler Expert start-up factory at Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Then he worked 2 years at LORIA on the synchronization of cooperative process fragment, based on workflow model, and applied to ephemeral enterprise. Since 2001, he is an Associate Professor at the Computer Science Laboratory (LIFC, EA 4269) at the University of Franche-Comt� in France. His research topics deal with, on the one hand mobility services and wireless positioning, and on the other hand on robust and flexible optimizing algorithms based on graph, automata and rewriting theories. His latest works are conduced in a trans-disciplinary way: geographic aspects, sociologic one�s, operational research and systemic approach help and propose complex system to various contexts among those of end-users, transportation operators, and authoritative organizers.
