[DMANET] ATMOS: Last Call for Papers

15th Workshop on Algorithmic Approaches for Transportation Modeling,

Optimization, and Systems (ATMOS 2015)


Call for Papers

The workshop on Algorithmic Approaches for Transportation Modeling, Optimization, and Systems (ATMOS) is an annual event bringing together researchers and practitioners who are interested in all aspects of algorithmic methods and models for transportation optimization. The workshop provides a forum for the exchange and dissemination of new ideas and techniques. The aim of making transportation better gives rise to very complex and large-scale optimization problems requiring innovative solution techniques and ideas from mathematical optimization,theoretical computer science, and operations research.

Applicable tools and concepts include those from graph and network algorithms, combinatorial optimization, approximation and online algorithms, stochastic and robust optimization.


We invite authors to present work that advances optimization methods and algorithms to facilitate planning and operational management of freight and passenger transportation and traffic. The workshop welcomes but is not limited to papers addressing the following


* Demand Forecasting

* Models for User Behavior

* Design of Pricing Systems

* Infrastructure Planning

* Multi-modal Transport Optimization

* Mobile Applications for Transport

* Congestion Modeling and Reduction

* Line Planning

* Timetable Generation

* Routing and Platform Assignment

* Vehicle Scheduling

* Route Planning

* Crew and Duty Scheduling

* Rostering

* Delay Management

* Routing in Road Networks

* Traffic Guidance

The workshop welcomes but is not limited to papers applying and advancing the following techniques: Graph and Network Algorithms, Combinatorial Optimization, Mathematical Programming, Approximation Algorithms, Methods for the Integration of Planning Stages, Stochastic and Robust Optimization, Online and Real-time Algorithms, Algorithmic Game Theory, Heuristics for Real-world Instances, Simulation Tools.

Submission guidelines

Authors are invited to submit an extended abstract or full paper of at most 12 pages (including title page, abstract, references, but not counting an optional appendix). Submissions must be formatted in LaTeX, using the OASIcs style file. The paper should contain a succinct statement of the issues and of their motivation, a summary of the main results, and a brief explanation of their significance, accessible to non-specialist readers. Proofs omitted due to space constraints can be put into an appendix to be read by the program committee members at their discretion. Papers must be submitted electronically via the EasyChair submisson system at https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=atmos20145. The submission must be received by June 21, 2015. By submitting a paper the authors acknowledge that in case of acceptance at least one of the authors must register at ALGO 2015 or ATMOS 2015, attend the conference, and present the paper.

The proceedings will be published online and as open-access in the Dagstuhl Open Access Series in Informatics (OASIcs).
