Event Description - The Conference on Traffic and Granular Flow (TGF) brings together international researchers from different fields (ranging from physics to computer science and engineering) to discuss the latest developments in different built and/or natural systems.

Originally conceived to facilitate new ideas by considering the similarities of traffic and granular flow, the latest TGF conferences cover a broad range of topics related to particle and transport systems. Besides the classical topics of granular flow and highway traffic, the TGF 2017 scope includes data transport (Internet traffic/cyber-systems), pedestrian and evacuation dynamics, intercellular transport, molecular dynamics and materials behavior, swarm behavior and collective dynamics of other biological systems.

The twelfth edition of this international conference will be held for the first time on the American Continent between the 19th of July and the 22nd of July, 2017. The conference is hosted by the George Washington University (GW) Transportation Engineering Group. It is supported by the Transportation Research Board (TRB Committee on Traffic Flow Theory and Characteristics (AHB45) through the Traffic Flow Modeling for Connected and Automated Vehicles (AHB45(3)) Subcommittee. The conference activities will be conducted at the GW main campus, Washington, DC, USA.

The Program
The conference will be mainly held at the Lehman Auditorium (Room B1220) at the Science of Engineering Hall of the George Washington University (B1 Floor). Sessions on the topics of connected infrastructures, granular materials, pedestrian dynamics, biological systems, complex networks and/or Internet of Things (IoT) (among other topics associated with Traffic and Granular Flow) will take place on July 20, 21 and 22 (half day). Each day, a minimum of two sessions for 1.5 hour duration each will take place. Between one and three plenary sessions will also take place on the mornings of July 20, July 21 and/or July 22, 2017. A reception will be held on the evening of July 19, 2017 (at the same conference location) and a social event will be held on the evening of July 21, 2017. Below is a bulleted schedule for added clarification:
