Upcoming Events

Distinguished Speaker Series: Professor Kaan Ozbay @ Husky Union Building (HUB) 332, U. of Washington
Oct 23 @ 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm
C2SMART Director Professor Kaan Ozbay of New York University will present the Center’s work as part of the Fall PacTrans Regional Seminar at the University of Washington.


In the first part of the talk, it will be argued that in an era of disruptive change experienced by all of our transportation systems, there is a need for a comprehensive cyber-physical testbed to develop, verify, and validate novel traffic safety strategies. To support this broad argument, C2SMART’s cyber-physical testbed which is built around the concept of “city as the lab” will be described. In the second part of the talk, the development of predictive safety analytics functions and pro-active traffic safety management approaches with a focus on New York City will be presented. The role of the cyber-physical test bed in these research efforts will be emphasized. The talk will be concluded by a discussion of opportunities and challenges in terms of the future of traffic safety research and development in highly congested and complex urban environments.

Managing Urban Parking and Mobility @ New York University Tandon School of Engineering
Nov 12 – Nov 13 all-day


A Collaborative Meeting Hosted by IPMI and C2SMART
Hosted at NYU Tandon School of Engineering in Brooklyn, NY

IPMI is convening select leaders from the largest cities across the country for a discussion about the evolving mobility landscape and its effects on transportation and parking – and living – in our cities. This meeting is a follow-up to IPMI meetings at the 2019 and 2018 annual Conferences, where we convened similar groups of our members and attendees.

In these brief gatherings, participants identified strategic issues and trends affecting our larger cities and expressed an interest in continuing the conversation and convening to collaborate and share ideas and best practices. We have invited select cities to select up to two leaders from their organizations to attend. Participation will be capped at 50 to 75 representatives to create a cohesive and engaging meeting opportunity.
