Master Thesis project with potential longterm job perspective

Sehr geehrter Prof. Nagel,

Ich suche für meine Abteilung „Verkehrsmodelle & GIS“ im Moment

  1. Jemand zur Festanstellung für die Bearbeitung von Visum-Verkehrsmodellen und
  2. Jemand, der Interesse hätte, im Rahmen einer Masterarbeit die Auswirkung Baustellenbedingter Verkehrsbeschränkungen auf den Verkehr vergleichend mit Visum und MATSim zu untersuchen.

Eventuell könnte das ein und dieselbe Person sein. Wenn Sie jemanden kennen, wäre ich Ihnen sehr verbunden, wenn Sie den Kontakt herstellen könnten. Sie können unsere Stellenanzeige auch gerne auf der MATSim-Webseite verlinken (http://www.argus-hh.de/stellenangebote/verkehrsingenieur-bauingenieur-geograph-als-projektleiter-wm/)

Zum Hintergrund: Im Auftrag der FHH bzw. DEGES unterstützen wir zurzeit die Koordinierung der in Hamburg geplanten Fernstraßenbaustellen durch Abschätzung der baustellenbedingten Verkehrsverlagerungen mit einem wegebasierten Visum-Modell der Metropolregion Hamburg. Die in Visum berechneten Verlagerungseffekte sind grundsätzlich plausibel. Ich würde mir die Auswirkungen aber gerne mal in einem MATSim-Modell ansehen. Ich habe zwar vor 2 Jahren selber an einem MATSim Einführungsseminar in Berlin teilgenommen, bin aber leider nie zu einer anhaltenden Anwendung des Programms gekommen. Die Anschaffung des Via-Viewers für eine dauerhafte Verwendung in meiner Abteilung wäre auch eher zu rechtfertigen, wenn in Rahmen einer studentischen Arbeit einerseits der praktische Nutzen offensichtlich würde und gleichzeitig jemand zur Anstellung für die weitere Bedienung verfügbar wäre.

Für Rückfragen stehen wir Ihnen gerne zur Verfügung.

Freundliche Grüße

Tim Klein

MATSim Tutorials this summer, July 2016

There will be a MATSim Tutorial in Shanghai this summer, on July 14 and July 15. The tutorial will be held as a two day intensive course. It is organized by ETH Zürich and takes place at Tongji University, Shanghai. More information including information about registration and fees is available online in our Wiki.

There will be another MATSim Tutorial at UC Davis, CA, USA, on July 22 and July 23. The tutorial is organized by ETH Zürich and TU Berlin and takes place at UC Davis in California, USA. More information is available online in the Wiki.

New Website!

After more than 9 years, it was time for a major re-work of the MATSim website. Besides refreshing the look of the site, we've also taken the opportunity to restructure the provided content, getting rid of old and outdated information, and improve the navigation.

As not all content was migrated from the old site to the new one, the old one will remain available at archive.matsim.org. If you miss some information on the new site or found some non-working links, please let us know so we can fix and improve the new site.

Current Job-Offerings [Aug 2016]

We have no systematic way of tracking job openings where MATSim knowledge is required or useful.  The following contains advertisements that we got aware of.

Deadline 2016-fall: ARGUS Stadt- und Verkehrsplanung: Is looking for a student who could compare VISUM with MATSim for Hamburg, with possible longer term prospects.  Details (German only).

Deadline 2016-08-29: Berliner Verkehrsbetriebe (BVG): The Berlin public transport authority BVG is offering a part-time job for students in the area of transport planning. Details (German only).

Deadline some time ago: Deutsche Bahn: The german railway company DB is offering an internship for microscopic modelling and simulation of public transport. Details (German only).

Please note that job-offerings are usually only available for a few weeks at most. So if the links above no longer work, it most likely means the jobs are no longer available.

MATSim is on GitHub

As announced previously, we've now moved our source code to GitHub!

We were able to import the trunk of the subversion repository without any loss to our new git repository on GitHub.

Visit MATSim on GitHub: https://github.com/matsim-org/matsim

To clone the MATSim source code, use https://github.com/matsim-org/matsim.git as URI.

To set up Eclipse, have a look at the updated documentation: Using Eclipse for MATSim development.

MATSim goes GitHub [UPDATE]

We're planning to move our code repository away from SourceForge to GitHub. The current plan is to do the switch in the second half of August.

The full announcement can be found on the Mailing List.

If you are a MATSim developer with write-access to the current SVN repository, please have a detailed look at the announcement on the mailing list: You need to register on GitHub and tell us your username and public email-address, so we can correctly convert the svn repository to a git repository.

 

UPDATE July 27:

SourceForge is not able to fully restore our repository. We have a current backup, but instead of restoring this and then moving everything to GitHub a few weeks later, we will move directly to GitHub right now! See the announcement on the mailing list.

The half-way restored svn repository on SourceForge is now read-only and will remain like this. We will not enable write-access anymore to the repository on SourceForge! All future changes to MATSim will have to be done to the repository on GitHub we're currently setting up.

New Release "Fall 2014" available!

I'm happy to announce the immediate availability of the latest release of MATSim!

This version includes the changes to the code base of the last one and a half year. We used the time to clean up the code, make MATSim a bit faster and mostly more modular on the inside so that the growing number of extensions can provide great, additional functionality to MATSim.

This release also contains our new User Guide in PDF format, which replaces the old user guide available on the matsim website.

Please note that this release is the last one to support Java 6. The next version of MATSim will require Java 7 to run.

Go on and download the release and give it a try!
