On 12 December 2016, TRAIL PhD student Mignon van den Berg will defend her PhD thesis “The Influence of Herding on Departure Choice in Case of an Evacuation: Design and analysis of a serious gaming experimental set-up” at Delft University of Technology.
On the occasion of her public defence, TRAIL and TU Delft have set up an interesting seminar on ‘Design and Modelling of Evacuation Measures’. Three distinguished speakers will present their views on possible evacuation measures and on modelling of evacuations.
