[DMANET] ATMOS 2016 Call for Papers

16th Workshop on Algorithmic Approaches for Transportation Modeling,
Optimization, and Systems (ATMOS 2016)

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 challenges:
• 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 and Information
• 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 submission system at


The submission must be received by *16 June 2016*.

By submitting a paper the authors acknowledge that in case of acceptance
at least one of the authors must register at ALGO 2016 or ATMOS 2016,
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).
