Friday, April 22, 2016 9 a.m. to 10 a.m.

CECS distinguished guest speaker Shashi Shekhar, Ph.D.,  McKnight Distinguished University Professor, University of Minnesota, will present: "Evacuation Route Planning: Novel Spatio-Temporal Network Models and Algorithms."

Efficient tools are needed to identify routes and schedules to evacuate affected populations to safety in face of natural disasters or terrorist attacks. This talk will address current computer science research being done in this field, and future work, which includes plans to formally characterize the quality of solutions identified by the CCRP "Capacity Constrained Route Planner" approach. Researchers will also explore new ideas, such as phased evacuations and contra-flow, to further reduce evacuation times.

Hosted by the UCF College of Engineering & Computer Science and the Department of Computer Science.
