Speech Title: SocialCar: Integrating Carpooling into Existing Mobility and Public Transportation Systems
Abstract: SocialCar is a European research and innovation project that seeks to incorporate carpooling (people commuting together on a same vehicle) into existing mobility and public transportation systems, by means of powerful planning algorithms and big data integration from public transportation, carpooling systems, and crowd sourcing. The project unites transportation engineers, social and economic scientists, information technology experts, carpoolers and public authorities from Italy, Greece, United Kingdom, Luxembourg, Poland, Switzerland, the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Croatia, Slovenia, the Netherlands, Hungary, Spain and Belgium. Their mission is to design, develop, test and roll out a service that simplifies the travel experience of citizens in urban and peri-urban areas. SocialCar will define data processing flows and design algorithms to match travel requests with the integrated public-private transport supply, complemented by a reputation-based mechanism based on social media. After a general overview of the project, a detailed description of the route planning and ride matching engines at the basis of the system will be provided. These component are used to provide the users with meaningful alternatives for their trips.

Title: Optimal Air-Cargo Allotment Contract with Multiple Freight Forwarders
Abstract: Consider the air-cargo service chain which comprises a carrier and multiple forwarders. The carrier and each of the forwarders may establish an allotment contract at the start of the season. We formulate the contract design problem as a Stackelberg game, in which the carrier is the leader and offers a contract to a forwarder. The contract parameters may include the discount contract price and the penalty cost for the unused allotment as well as the minimum allotment utilization. The carrier's contract is accepted, if the forwarder earns at least its reservation profit. Given the carrier's offer, the forwarder decides how much to book as an allotment, in order to maximize its own expected profit. We show that the two-parameter contract suffices to coordinate the service chain, and the carrier earns the maximum chain's expected profit less the total reservation profits of all forwarders. If the penalty cost is not imposed, then the minimum allotment utilization is needed to construct an efficient contract. On the other hand, if the penalty cost is strictly positive, then there is no need to impose the minimum allotment requirement.
