Professor Constantinos Antoniou

Constantinos Antoniou is a Full Professor in the Chair of Transportation Systems Engineering at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), Germany. He holds a Diploma in Civil Engineering from NTUA (1995), a MS in Transportation (1997) and a PhD in Transportation Systems (2004), both from MIT. His research focuses on modelling and simulation of transportation systems, Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS), calibration and optimization applications, road safety and sustainable transport systems and in his 20 years of experience he has held key positions in a number of research projects in Europe, the US and Asia, while he has also participated in a number of consulting projects. Costas has a proven track record in attracting competitive funding in both national and international levels.


He is/has been the PI of several research projects, and has contributed considerably to the preparation of a large number of funded proposals, in the national and international level. He has authored more than 350 scientific publications, including more than 100 papers in international, peer-reviewed journals, 200 in international conference proceedings, two books and 20 book chapters. He is a member of several professional and scientific organizations, editorial boards (Member of the Editorial Boards of Transportation  Research - Part A, Transportation Research – Part C, Accident Analysis and Prevention and Journal of Intelligent Transportation Systems; Associate Editor of Transportation Letters, IET ITS, EURO Journal of Transport and Logistics), committees (Member of TRB committee AHB45 – Traffic Flow Theory and TRB committee ABJ70 - Artificial Intelligence and Advanced Computing Applications, Steering Committee of hEART – The European Association for Research in Transportation and FGSV Committee 3.10 “Theoretical fundamentals of road traffic"), and a frequent reviewer for a large number of scientific journals, scientific conferences, research proposals and scholarships.


He enjoys teaching at the graduate and undergraduate levels, as well as in other venues, such as Summer Schools and Short Courses. He has supervised one PhD student (graduated at 2014), and is currently supervising five more, has supervised 5 graduate theses and 17 five-year diploma theses, as well as participated in various roles in doctoral committees and examinations in other universities (such as KTH, TU Berlin, University of Naples – Federico II, EPFL and the National University of Singapore).


A leader of the profession and opinion maker, with frequent presence in major national media (TV, radio, newspapers) on transportation topics. As part of his volunteer activities, he is the former Chairman of the Hellenic Institute of Transportation Engineers (HITE), the former President of the MIT Club of Greece, and co-founder and Secretary of the Board of Directors of the MIT Enterprise Forum Greece.
