Location

Both the MATSim tutorial and user meeting are held at the main building of ETH Zurich (Rämistr. 101, 8092 Zurich). The MATSim tutorial takes place in the room HG E 23. The MATSim user meeting takes place in room HG F 26.1.

Hard- and Software

Participants of the tutorials should bring their own laptops. Please make sure that the software in the following list is installed on your laptop:

  • Operating system
    You can use the operating system (OS) of your own choice. Guidance can be provided for the following OS in the course of the tutorial: Windows XP or newer, Mac OS X, GNU/Linux such as Debian, Ubuntu.
    Note:
    If possible, have administrative rights for the laptop you bring along. They might be required for the installation of a missing program or the modification of some computer setting.
  • Web browser
    Make sure a web browser such as Mozilla Firefox is installled on your laptop.
  • File archiver
    A program to handle file archives (*.zip, *.gz) is required. While such a tool is typically bundled with Mac OS X and GNU/Linux, it has to be manually installed for Windows. A recommended tool for Windows is 7-Zip, for which guidance can be provided during the tutorial.
  • Java
    Download and install the newest version of the "Java SE Development Kit" (JDK 6.0 Update xy) from java.sun.com. Make sure you choose the JDK, not only the JRE (Java Runtime Environment)!
  • Eclipse
    Download and install Eclipse, the development environment which is used in the course of the tutorial. It can be downloaded from eclipse.org. The package "Eclipse IDE for Java Developers" is sufficient for our needs.
  • Google Earth
    In order to save time during the tutorial, it is recommended, that you download and install Google Earth from earth.google.com
