Seminar Series: Programme for 2021/2022

After the successful first edition conducted last year, we are happy to announce the second edition of the joint seminar series of the Anthropolis Chair, operated by IRT SystemX and CentraleSupélec, and the Future Cities Lab (Centrale Pékin, Beihang University Beijing and Laboratoire Génie Industriel, CentraleSupélec, Unviersité Paris-Saclay). The series of research seminars aims at exchanging knowledge and ideas on the ongoing projects within the Chair and Lab and its affiliates and collaborators, as well as at communicating the research progress to external stakeholders.

Below the dates of the seminars, the presenters and the titles will be announced soon.

To stay up to date about future seminars, please join our mailing list.

Seminar Series: Programme for 2021

In November 2020, we started the joint seminar seried of the Future Cities Lab and the Anthropolis Chair. In the first session, Chair holder and lab co-director Jakob Puchinger introduced the bi-weekly format and gave a short presentation of current projects and initiatives of the Lab

First online Research Seminar

A half-day seminar titles "Scientific exchange of the Future Cities Lab" was co-hosted online by Ecole Centrale Pékin and CentraleSupeléc on the 30th of July.

The seminar was organized by Prof. Hai-Jung Huang, vice president of Beihang University and chief scientist of several major scientific research projects in China, as well as Prof. Jakob Puchinger, head of the Operations Management Team at the department of Industrial Engineering, CentraleSupelec, senior scientist at IRT SystemX, and co-holder of the Future Cities Lab The main aim of the seminar was to have a scientific exchange between the Future Cities Lab. partners and collaborators and to present ongoing research work of the participating researchers. The seminar attracted more than 30 researchers both from Ecole Centrale Pékin, Beihang University and the department of Industrial Engineering, CentraleSupélec.

The seminar was organized around 4 presentations covering the following topics:

  • Optimizing free cancellation window and penalty cost in ride-sourcing markets

Prof. Xinwei LI, School of Economics and Management, Beihang University.

  • Network reliability and cascading failures under different efficiency targets

Ms. Jinxia DUAN (PhD. Candidate), School of Economics and Management, Beihang University.

  • Open and reproducible transport simulation for Automated Mobility

Dr. Sebastian Hörl, IRT SystemX.

  • Ambiguity-Averse framework for improving the resilience of critical infrastructure systems in large urban areas

Dr. Adam F. ABDIN, department of Industrial Engineering, CentraleSupelec.

Position filled: Postdoctoral Researcher Future Cities Lab

We are looking to appoint a postdoctoral researcher at CentraleSupélec

Developing novel algorithms for designing, planning, and operating on-demand transport systems in an intermodal context. The investigation of the interactions between electric vehicles and power systems will be an important part of the research.
