Chang to Deliver Keynote Speech
Department of Civil Engineering Professor Gang-Len Chang has been invited to deliver a keynote speech at the 10th International Conference of Eastern Asia Society for Transportation Studies on "Challenges and Suggestions to Transportation Professionals in Asia." The conference will be held in Taipei on September 9th-12th.
Chang received his Ph.D. in Transportation Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin and performs research in the areas of network traffic control, freeway traffic management, real-time traffic simulation, and dynamic urban systems.
The Eastern Asia Society for Transportation Studies (EASTS) was founded in November 1994 as a result of a meeting among transport experts from 13 countries/regions in eastern Asia. It is an umbrella organization of transportation science societies with the primary objectives of fostering and supporting excellence in transportation research and practice and to stimulate professional interchange in all aspects and modes of transportation. The EASTS conference has emerged as the primary transportation conference in Asia.
Chang will also give an invited talk at the workshop "Development of mixed flow traffic simulation and optimization models for developing countries in Asia," sponsored by Taiwan University and the Ministry of Transportation and Communications, to be held from September 13th-18th, 2013.
