HUMAN BEHAVIOUR IN FIRE NETWORK (HUBFIN)

 

 

CONFERENCE OBJECTIVES

SIMULATING PEOPLE MOVEMENT AND BEHAVIOUR

The world is changing.  From shopping malls to transport terminals, aircraft to passenger ships the infrastructure of society is having to cope with ever more intense and complex flows of people.  Safety is an issue, brought horrifically into focus by the World Trade Centre disaster and recognized in the new regulatory framework in the marine industry are testimony; but so too is the need to design spaces for efficiency and comfort.  Traditional prescriptive design guides and regulations are increasingly challenged by these complex demands.  Designers and regulators are turning to performance-based analysis and regulations, which have been facilitated by the new generation of people movement models.  

 

The Second International Conference in Pedestrian and Evacuation Dynamics (PED) to be held in August 2003 on the historic campus of the University of Greenwich in London will set out to address the current state of computer simulation in pedestrian and evacuation dynamics with a focus on the following main themes:

 

  • Pedestrian Motion
  • Evacuation Dynamics
  • Cellular Automata
  • Multi-Agent Models
  • Pedestrian Simulation
  • Evacuation Simulation
  • Human Performance Data
  • Regulatory Compliance
  • Practical Applications

 

In addressing these themes, it is anticipated that many of the contributed papers will be influenced by issues arising from:

 

Evacuation of the World Trade Centre complex – The lessons learned

The evacuation of the World Trade Centre complex - the largest in modern times – has sensitised the world to the evacuation issues of high-rise buildings.  The conference will provide a venue to explore what can be learned from this disaster and whether models can be used to identify and solve high-rise evacuation issues. 

 

IMO interim guidelines MSC/Circ 1033 – Implications for the maritime architects

The conference will also provide a platform for discussing conformance issues with the IMO interim guidelines on advanced evacuation analysis. These require all advanced analyses to be performed using computer models capable of (i) representing each occupant as an individual; (ii) defining the layout of the ship in detail, (iii) simulating the interaction between the occupants and the layout and (iv) passing eleven prescribed test cases.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

As the only international conference dedicated to computer simulation in this fast-developing safety and regulatory field, the three-day event attracts the senior decision-makers from companies, public sector organisations and regulators, as well as the world’s leading academic experts.  Over one hundred delegates from twelve countries attended the highly successful first conference in Duisburg, Germany last year (http://www.traffic.uni-duisburg.de/). We expect that interest will have grown significantly for the second conference, particularly in the wake of the September 11th tragedy and since the approval of the IMO interim guidelines.

THE CONFERENCE

 

The Institution of Fire Engineers have awarded the conference 17 hours of CPD

The conference is scheduled to run for three days, 20, 21 and 22 August 2003. (Note however that the Welcome Reception will take place in the
evening of 19 August). The primary focus of the conference will cover the following broad areas:

 

-         The modelling of pedestrian dynamics and its applications.

-         Building evacuation model development, application and the regulatory environment,

-         Marine evacuation model development and application and the regulatory environment

-         Data collection relating to human performance in emergency and non-emergency situations.

 

The conference will consist of six invited papers, 21 contributed papers, poster sessions and software demonstration sessions.  The papers will appear in bound conference proceedings.  The proceedings from the first conference, which were published by Springer, proved to be an invaluable resource for researchers, students and professionals involved in the simulation of human behaviour, movement and evacuation.

Day 1, 20 August: Pedestrian Dynamics and associated Data Collection issues.
Day 2, 21 August: Maritime Evacuation Modelling and associated Data Collection issues.
Day 3, 22 August: Building Evacuation Modelling and associated Data Collection issues.
Lab and demonstration sessions will be held on all three days in no particular order.

 THE PED 2003 DVD COLLECTION


PED 2003 consisted of 37 presentations over three days.  As the world’s only conference dedicated to the computer simulation of pedestrian and evacuation dynamics, the conference offers a unique opportunity for experts and beginners, model developers and model users, regulators and design engineers, to gain insight into the rapidly changing world of computer simulation of evacuation and circulation dynamics.

Held over three days, the conference focused on the main themes of:

Day 1:              Pedestrian Dynamics; Pedestrian Performance Data;

Day 2:              Marine Evacuation Models; Marine Evacuation Applications and Data Collection;

Day 3:              Building Evacuation Models; Building Evacuation Applications and Data Collection.

30 presentations from the conference were recorded (day 1: 11; day 2: 10; day 3: 9) and are available for purchase on DVD (see conference programme on these web pages).  The complete collection is available on six DVDs, two DVDs for each day of the conference.  Examples of the recorded presentations are available from the FSEG web site at: http://fseg.gre.ac.uk/PED2003/FSEG_presentations/index.html

Please note that the presentations on the DVD require the DIVX codec to play.

THE VENUE

 

The venue for the 2003 conference is the magnificent campus of the University of Greenwich in London four miles downriver from Tower Bridge. The main 18th Century buildings designed by Sir Christopher Wren form part of what has been described as the finest architectural vista in England, which was recently recognised when Greenwich became a UN World Heritage site.  Greenwich is not only the finest collection of 17th and 18th Century buildings in Britain, but also a thriving and bustling town with lively bars and historic pubs.  The university’s local, the Trafalgar Tavern, was a favourite of Charles Dickens and successive Cabinets of the British Government.  The town has excellent public transport links, including its own station on the Docklands Light Railway, an integral part of the London Underground network and is a short cab ride from City Airport.  Directly behind the university are other Greenwich attractions such as The Queens House, The National Maritime Museum, and Greenwich Royal Park. 

 

Royal Greenwich

For two centuries the area occupied by the University of Greenwich was the site of the principal royal palace.  Henry VIII, Mary I and Elizabeth I were all born there and it was from there that Elizabeth sent the order to behead Mary, Queen of Scots.  In 1616 Mary’s son, James I commissioned the court architect Inigo Jones to build the Queen’s house for his wife, Queen Anne.  The Great Hall of the house, designed as a perfect cube, includes the first spiral staircase of its kind in Britain.

 

Maritime Greenwich

Christopher Wren was appointed by Queen Mary to develop the site of the original Royal Palace as a hospital for retired and wounded seamen.  These magnificent buildings are now home to the University of Greenwich.  They include the beautiful Painted Hall where Lord Nelson lay in state after Trafalgar; the Hall’s Painted ceiling by Sir James Thornhill is a masterpiece unmatched outside the Vatican’s Sistine Chapel.  In 1893 Greenwich’s maritime history was extended when the Wren buildings became the Royal Naval College; later the Queen’s house and its wings became the National Maritime Museum.

 

Greenwich Mean Time

Greenwich Royal Park has breathtaking views over London and is home to the Royal Observatory, the first official observatory in Britain founded by Charles II and designed by Wren.  The observatory’s work was vital to Isaac Newton in studying the laws of gravity and in 1884 the observatory was chosen by the world’s maritime nations as the zero line of longitude, the Prime Meridian, the line that divides the eastern and western hemispheres and the point of reference for the world’s time.
