Call for Papers

3rd Workshop on Modeling, Computing and Data Handling for Marine
Transportation (MCDMT 2017), August 28, 2017, Larnaka, Cyprus

in association with the

8th International Conference on Information, Intelligence, Systems and
Applications  ( IISA 2017 )


Workshop Chairs: Charalampos Konstantopoulos (University of Piraeus,
Greece),  Grammati Pantziou (Technological Educational Institute (T.E.I.) of
Athens, Greece)

The Workshop on Modeling, Computing and Data Handling for Marine
Transportation (MCDMT 2017) is going to take place in Larnaka, Cyprus, on
August 28, 2017, in conjunction with the 8th International Conference on
Information, Intelligence, Systems and Applications (IISA 2017). Nowadays,
advancements on Marine Transportation require the synergy of both computer
science and maritime science and the technical focus of the workshop is upon
the latest developments on Computing Methodologies for Marine

Papers with novel theoretical as well as applied research are welcome for
submission. We would like to invite papers addressing research efforts that
aim at making sea transportation more effective and safer, targeting complex
and large-scale optimization problems with conflicting criteria, requiring
innovative solution techniques and ideas from mathematical optimization,
theoretical computer science, massive data analysis and operations research.

Submissions are solicited in, but not limited to, the following areas:

- Graph and Network algorithms for Marine Transportation
- Combinatorial optimization techniques for Marine Transportation
- Weather Routing
- Environmentally Safe Shipping
- Safety and Security of Maritime Shipping
- Risk and Safety Analysis, Assessment and Prediction
- Piracy Protection
- GIS in Maritime Applications
- Spatiotemporal and Marine Data Handling
- Route Planning and Monitoring
- Maritime Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery Applications: surveillance,
maritime traffic control, anomaly detection, emergency management, situation
recognition, etc.
- Decision Support Tools for Marine Transportation
- Integration of Heterogeneous Marine Data Sources
