Our PhD student Erik Smedberg received the 2020 RiMEA-Award. This award is given annually to the best thesis in the field of pedestrian and evacuation dynamics. The RIMEA association is made of a group of researchers and consultants in the field of pedestrian and evacuation dynamics from German-speaking countries. It is well known worldwide for issuing guidelines concerning the verification and validation of pedestrian models. Erik received the award for his master thesis "The Analysis of Results of Stochastic Evacuation Models" in which he developed a methodology to study the uncertainty of probabilistic evacuation models. The thesis work has also resulted in a scientific publication in the journal Fire Technology. The paper is available in open access here.
