During this event, Chraibi presented two lectures, showcasing his expertise and innovative approaches to traffic simulation. His first lecture served as an introduction to car-following models, tracing the historical development and outlining the stability properties of these models. Through engaging live NetLogo simulations, he offered students accessible means to comprehend the intricate properties of car-following models, enhancing their learning experience significantly.

In his second lecture, Chraibi presented a numerical reconstruction of the 1919 Amritsar massacre, utilizing JuPedSim for the simulations. This innovative approach not only shed new light on the tragic event but also demonstrated the potential of modeling techniques to gain fresh insights into historical incidents post-mortem. His work in this area exemplifies the applications of computer-aided simulations in understanding and interpreting complex social dynamics.
