SeminApero

An event by PhD students in Civil and Environmental Engineering

**** Français ci-dessous ****

YOU are invited to join your colleagues from the civil and environmental engineering doctoral program for a networking event. The goal is to bring together doctoral students to build and strengthen relations within EDCE (Doctoral program in Civil & Environmental Engineering), and with students from the Architecture & Sciences of the City (EDAR) program.

The 7th edition of the seminApero will be held on Wednesday, 5 November at 17h00 in GC C3 30.

We are looking for students to present their work in a 5-minute, 5-slide presentation (volunteer by sending an email to Parag). This casual seminar will last less than an hour (6x5') and will be followed by an apero allowing you to meet and socialise with your fellow doctoral students in a relaxed atmosphere.

For registration or further questions you can reply to this email or check out our blog.

Best regards,

Parag

Gare au shopping

Dans la revue de presse de l'EPFL aujourd'hui :

Gare au shopping

Les gares deviennent de véritables centres commerciaux. Comment expliquer une telle évolution? Michaël Thémans, adjoint du directeur du Centre des transports, était sur la RTS pour en parler.

Le site de la RTS nous en dit en peu plus :

C'est tendance! - Gare et shopping

Avant, les gares se définissaient par leur sobriété voire leur austérité. Il n’y a qu’à voir le hall d’entrée de la gare de Bâle, à la fois superbe et majestueux... Et puis, les gares se sont transformées jusqu’à devenir de véritables centres commerciaux avec leurs magasins et leurs galeries marchandes, ouverts tous les jours et tardivement. Le dernier exemple en date est la gare Cornavin de Genève qui fait peau neuve. Comment expliquer une telle évolution?

Ecouter : RTS : C'est tendance!

Postprint available on Infoscience

I am regularly fighting to find articles, in particular in Transportation Research Record, a journal to which we don't have access from EPFL. I would like to avoid this to my potential readers.

I recently published an article in Transportation Research Part C: Emerging technologies. This publisher (Elsevier) is open access compliant according to Sherpa. It means that I can archive a post-print (i.e., final draft post-refereeing) (but not the publisher's version/PDF). There is no embargo, meaning that there is no delay for archiving after publication.

More specifically, in the contract I have with Transportation Research Part C, it is written that I keep "the right to use the Preprint or Accepted Author Manuscript for Personal Use, Internal Institutional Use and for Permitted Scholarly Posting".

The definition of an "Accepted Author Manuscript" is:

Author's version of the manuscript of an article that has been accepted for publication and which may include any author-incorporated changes suggested through the processes of submission processing, peer review, and editor-author communications. AAMs should not include other publisher value-added contributions such as copy-editing, formatting and (if relevant) pagination, and should include the Appropriate Bibliographic Citation and a link to the final publication (generally through the relevant DOI).

The definition of a "Permitted Scholarly Posting" is:

Voluntary posting of AAMs or Preprints by an author on open Web sites operated by the author or the author's institution for scholarly purposes, as determined by the author, or (in connection with Preprints ) on preprint servers, but not for Commercial Use or Systematic Distribution. The author should include the Appropriate Bibliographic Citation when posting AAMs. Deposit in or posting to subject-oriented or centralised repositories (such as PubMed Central), or institutional repositories with mandates for systematic postings, is permitted only under specific agreements between the publisher and the repository, agency or institution, and only consistent with the Copyright Owner's policies concerning such repositories. To learn more about the publisher's policies and agreements with such agencies or institutions go to http://www.elsevier.com/fundingbodyagreements.

The definition of "Appropriate Bibliographic Citation" is:

Authors posting Accepted Author Manuscript online should later add a citation for the Published Journal Article indicating that the Article was subsequently published, and may mention the journal title provided they add the following text at the beginning of the document:

NOTICE: this is the author's version of a work that was accepted for publication in Transportation Research Part C. Changes resulting from the publishing process, such as peer review, editing, corrections, structural formatting, and other quality control mechanisms may not be reflected in this document. Changes may have been made to this work since it was submitted for publication. A definitive version was subsequently published in PUBLICATION, [VOL#, ISSUE#, (DATE)] DOI#

So I wrote an "Appropriate Bibliographic Citation" a the beginning of my "Accepted Author Manuscript" and I posted it. The postprint it is now available on Infoscience (direct link to PDF).

NOTICE: this is the author's version of a work that was accepted for publication in Transportation Research Part C. Changes resulting from the publishing process, such as peer review, editing, corrections, structural formatting, and other quality control mechanisms may not be re ected in this document. Changes may have been made to this work since it was submitted for publication. A denitive version was subsequently published in Transportation Research Part C: Emerging Technologies, Volume 44, July 2014, Pages 146-170, ISSN 0968-090X, DOI: 10.1016/j.trc.2014.03.015.

Research data on Infoscience

Five months ago, I published research data on Zenodo, A Bayesian Approach to Detect Pedestrian Destination-Sequences from WiFi Signatures: Data. It gives a DOI for the publication, 10.5281/zenodo.8492. It also gives visibility on this website specialized in research data.

In order to increase the visibility, I added the data file to Infoscience, EPFL institutional repository, on the technical report record and on the journal article record.

Individual activity travel analysis based on smartphone WiFi data

Les diplômés de l’ENAC présentent leur travail de Master dans le cadre d’une exposition de posters du mercredi 1er au dimanche 5 octobre dans le hall du Centre Est (devant la Salle Polyvalente).

Le vernissage de l’exposition aura lieu mercredi 1er octobre, à partir de 17h30, à la Salle Polyvalente (événement dans le Memento EPFL).

Vers 17h45, certains diplômés présenteront leurs travaux de diplôme. En particulier, Amélie Buisson (SGC) présentera son projet de Master intitulé "Individual activity travel analysis based on smartphone WiFi data", effectué dans le labo TRANSP-OR, sous la supervision de Michel Bierlaire, Eva Kazagli et moi.

Activity choice in pedestrian facilities for TU/e students

I gave a talk for students from the Honor Program of TU Eindhoven visiting EPFL in July and I have just posted the slides today on TRANSP-OR website: Activity choice in pedestrian facilities.

A particularly interesting slide on page 12 shows when students arrive on campus and when they claim they arrive on campus:

The number of WiFi observations generated by students is shown in blue. The number of respondents to a mobility survey present on campus based on their stated answer is shown in green. We observe that the green curves increases the most between 8:00 and 8:15, when the courses start. The WiFi curve in blue increases much slower in the morning.

This could be explained by the fact that students really want to focus on courses at 8:15 and turn off their smartphone and laptops. Or it could be that they come later to courses that they would like/claim...

Activity choice modeling for pedestrian facilities: Validation on synthetic data

I gave a talk during the 3rd Symposium of the European Association for Research in Transportation (hEART 2014) hosted by the Institute for Transport Studies at the University of Leeds, UK.

The idea is to use the same approach than in the proceedings of STRC (Danalet and Bierlaire, 2014), but with a more complex utility structure for the time-of-day preferences (symmetrical Cauchy distribution), more coherent with the litterature and in particular with a paper by Dick Ettema et al., and validate it with synthetic data.

The slides are available on TRANSP-OR website, with the title Activity choice modeling for pedestrian facilities: Validation on synthetic data.

Enjeux mondiaux : feedback du cours Communication A

Le programme SHS offre aux étudiants de l'EPFL un enseignement qui couvrent le domaine des sciences humaines et sociales. Durant la première année, les étudiants suivent un cours intitulés "Enjeux Mondiaux". Chaque enjeu est co-enseigné par un professeur provenant du domaine technique et un professeur ayant une formation SHS, afin de faire le lien entre ces deux approches. Les enjeux sont l'alimentation, le climat, la communication, l'énergie, la mobilité et la santé.

Nos collègues du cours Communication A ont publié un papier lors de la conférence ITHET sur leur enjeu dans le cadre du cours :

Early Awareness of Global Issues and Development of Soft Skills in Engineering Education: An Interdisciplinary Approach to Communication

To tackle the challenges of the 21st century, the future scientists and engineers have to understand the interplay between societal challenges and technical solutions as early as possible in their education. They also have to develop the communication and the teamwork skills required to be effective professionals. This paper presents the Communication module of a new course in Social and Human Sciences (SHS) introduced for all first year students at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL). This course aims at tackling Global Issues with an interdisciplinary perspective and at developing soft skills. The Communication module puts emphasis on the challenges associated with the instantaneous and ubiquitous access to information and knowledge. The introduction of a mobile app supporting anonymous interaction during the lectures is also discussed.

Full paper on Infoscience

Le papier documente bien le fonctionnement du cours en général et le retour des étudiants. Dans le cours Mobilité A+B, nous n'avons pas utilisé l'application mobile décrite dans le papier, mais des clickers pour faire voter les étudiants sur des questions liées à la mobilité, avant et après avoir présenté chaque sujet.
