  • Repeating EventMeet USC: Admission Presentation, Campus Tour, and Engineering Talk

    Mon, Aug 31, 2015

    Viterbi School of Engineering Undergraduate Admission

    Receptions & Special Events


    This half day program is designed for prospective freshmen and family members. Meet USC includes an information session on the University and the Admission process, a student led walking tour of campus, and a meeting with us in the Viterbi School. During the engineering session we will discuss the curriculum, research opportunities, hands-on projects, entrepreneurial support programs, and other aspects of the engineering school. Meet USC is designed to answer all of your questions about USC, the application process, and financial aid.

    Reservations are required for Meet USC. This program occurs twice, once at 8:30 a.m. and again at 12:30 p.m. Please make sure to check availability and register online for the session you wish to attend. Also, remember to list an Engineering major as your "intended major" on the webform!

    Title: Scalable Evacuation Routing in Dynamic Environments

    Abstract:
    In the face of a natural or man-made disaster, evacuation planning refers to the process of reallocating the endangered population to a set of safe places, often in a hurry. Such a task needs proper preparation, execution, and most definitely a post-disaster response. We have contributed a new taxonomy of the evacuation planning problem and categorized available solutions. Evacuation routing is part of the bigger problem that finds the best routes to relocate the endangered population to safety. We propose a new method to perform evacuation routing efficiently under capacity constraints. Traditionally, simulation software or shortest path routing combined with zonal scheduling have been used to solve routing problems. Our method utilizes a state-of-the-art algorithm to connect each source node to its nearest destination. It also intelligently takes into account transportation network capacity and traffic flow to minimize congestion and system-wide transportation times. We also define the dynamic evacuation routing problem and propose a solution. The dynamic solution is capable of updating routes if the network topology is changed during the evacuation process. Effectively, it can solve the evacuation problem for a moving disaster. Together these new developments pave the path for future researchers to study the evacuation problem and to integrate it into urban transportation services. Hopefully one day we can save more lives than before when future disasters occur.
