Important Dates

June 29, 2017: Submission Deadline
August 31, 2017: Notification
October 3, 2017: Camera-Ready Version Due
December 9-12, 2017: ISAAC

---------------------------------------------------------------
Submission Guidelines

Authors are invited to submit an extended abstract or full
paper of at most 12 pages with an optional appendix. The
submission should contain a scholarly exposition of ideas,
techniques, and results, including motivation and a clear
comparison with related work. They must not be submitted
simultaneously to another conference with refereed proceedings
or to a journal. Drafts which contain essentially the same
results as papers under review in other conferences or
journals cannot be submitted to ISAAC 2017. Exempted are
workshops and conferences without formal proceedings, but
possibly with handouts containing short abstracts. At least
one author of an accepted paper is required to present the
paper at the conference as a registered participant.

Papers must be formatted in LaTeX, using the LIPIcs style file,
which is available at
http://www.dagstuhl.de/en/publications/lipics/instructions-for-authors/ .
The maximum length of the paper (including title, the list of
authors, abstract, references, but excluding the optional
appendix) is 12 pages. Do not change the margin size or the
font, do not make a separate title page, etc.: use the LIPIcs
style file as given.

Proofs omitted due to space constraints must be placed in an
appendix that is to be read by the program committee members
at their discretion and will not be published as part of the
proceedings. Thus the paper without the appendix should be
able to stand on its own.

Submissions are due on June 29, 2017 11:59PM (PDT). Only
electronic submission will be allowed via the easychair
submission server
http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=isaac2017 .

These guidelines are strict: papers failing to adhere to the
guidelines (by not providing the omitted proofs in an appendix,
being more than 12 pages, or not being in LIPIcs format) will
be rejected without consideration of their merits.

---------------------------------------------------------------
Availability of Full Versions

Polished full versions are expected to be published in refereed
journals after the ISAAC conference. Upon acceptance, if there
is an omitted detail in the camera-ready version for ISAAC,
authors are encouraged to upload a full version of the accepted
paper to a preprint server, e.g., arXiv, ECCC, or an
e-repository at universities/institutes, so that interested
readers can access the full proofs that are omitted in ISAAC
proceedings. When authors refer to omitted proofs in ISAAC
proceedings, citation to the accessible full version is
desired. However, uploading a full version is not mandatory
for authors.

---------------------------------------------------------------
Special Issues

Special issues in Algorithmica and International Journal of
Computational Geometry and Applications are planned for
selected papers from ISAAC 2017.

---------------------------------------------------------------
Awards

The Best Paper and the Best Student Paper will be awarded. A
paper is eligible for the Best Student Paper if all authors are
full-time students at the time of submission. To indicate that
a submission is eligible, please mark the checkbox ``Eligible
for best student paper'' in the web form on the submission
server.

[DMANET] [IEEE MoD@ITSC'17] Call for Papers

===============================================================================
===============================================================================

IEEE MoD@ITSC 2017

1st Workshop on Modelling, Analysis and Control of
Intelligent Mobility-on-Demand Systems

co-located with IEEE ITSC 2017
October 16-19, 2017, Yokohama, Japan

http://cnd.iit.cnr.it/mod2017/

===============================================================================
===============================================================================


After decades of little innovation, personal urban mobility is undergoing rapid transformations due to the introduction of disruptive technologies (e.g. connected and driverless cars), new IT applications (e.g. app-based services) but also due to changes in individual preferences and social behaviours, with a growing trend towards a shifting from car ownership to sharing. This gave new life to several mobility on demand (MoD) services which were ideated decades ago but never established themselves as viable mobility solutions and created new variations of them, such as ride-sharing, bike-sharing programs, car-pooling and car-sharing services, on-demand bus and delivery services, etc.
The rapid growth and the forecasted (large) scale of these new mobility services is expected to radically change individual travel patterns, and conventional frameworks for the modelling, analysis, simulation and control of transportation systems are not appropriate any more. For instance, novel demand modelling tools are needed for measuring, modelling and predicting behavioural choice and individual preferences for the new mobility solutions, as well as forecasting the level of market uptake of the different mobility services. Similarly, new analytical models and simulation frameworks are required to accurately characterise the peculiar properties of MoD systems. Then, the insights obtained may serve as basic input to advanced optimization frameworks, which can provide decision tools for the planning and optimal operation of such systems. Key issues to address are infrastructure planning, fleet sizing and management, supply rebalancing, and efficient cooperation with other transportation modes (e.g. public transport).

The goal of this workshop session is to provide a forum to exchange ideas, discuss solutions, and share experiences from industry, researchers and the public sector. We solicit original papers covering different aspects of MoD systems, including modelling, optimisation, management systems, field applications and new paradigms.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Data mining, machine learning, and data analytics for MoD systems
- Large scale simulation of agent-based models for MoD systems
- Modelling, analysis, and control of MoD systems
- On-demand mobility in Public Transport
- Cooperative Systems and Connected Vehicles for MoD services
- Autonomous driving for MoD services
- ITS technologies for MoD services
- Social and emergent behaviours for MoD services
- Travel behaviour and travel demand for MoD systems
- Discrete choice modelling for MoD systems
- Field tests and implementation of MoD services
- Cooperation between different modes of MoD
- MoD and Smart Cities
- Complex network theory for MoD systems
- Robotic MoD systems
- Electric MoD systems
- Operations research in MoD systems
- Drones as the new frontier for MoD


PAPER FORMAT AND SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS
----------------------------------------
Submitted papers must be no longer than 6 pages, and should adhere to the standard IEEE conference proceedings format. Reviews will be single-blinded.

INTRODUCTION
=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D
In parallel with Petrol as a driving resource in this world, Data is =
becoming an increasingly decisive resource in modern societies, =
economies, and governmental organizations. Gradually and steadily, it is =
being world-wide recognized that data and talents are playing key roles =
in modern businesses.
As an interdisciplinary area, Data Science draws scientific inquiry from =
a broad range of subject areas such as statistics, mathematics, computer =
science, machine learning, optimization, signal processing, information =
retrieval, databases, cloud computing, computer vision, natural language =
processing and etc. Data Science is on the essence of deriving valuable =
insights from data. It is emerging to meet the challenges of processing =
very large datasets, i.e. Big Data, with the explosion of new data =
continuously generated from various channels such as smart devices, web, =
mobile and social media.
Data Systems are posing many challenges in exploiting parallelism of =
current and upcoming computer architectures. Data volumes of =
applications in the fields of sciences and engineering, finance, media, =
online information resources, etc. are expected to double every two =
years over the next decade and further. With this continuing data =
explosion, it is necessary to store and process data efficiently by =
utilizing enormous computing power. The importance of data intensive =
systems has been raising and will continue to be the foremost fields of =
research. This raise brings up many research issues, in forms of =
capturing and accessing data effectively and fast, processing it while =
still achieving high performance and high throughput, and storing it =
efficiently for future use. Innovative programming models, high =
performance scalable computing platforms, efficient storage systems and =
expression of data requirements are at immediate need.
DSS (Data Science and Systems) was created to provide a prime =
international forum for researchers, industry practitioners and domain =
experts to exchange the latest advances in Data Science and Data Systems =
as well as their synergy. 2017 is the 3rd event following the success in =
2015 (DSDIS 2015) and 2016 (DSS 2016).

The BigDSSAgro conference is devoted to decision support systems in
agriculture, which combine models, databases and algorithms to support
many real-world decision-making problems.

The access to cheap sensor technology, drones, climate data and
forecasts, satellite information about soils, humidity and more is
provoking a revolution with the irruption of Big Data and opening the
door to the development and application of novel optimization and
simulation models in Agriculture and the Agri-food industries.
The main question to solve is how to transform the huge amount of data
into useful information to decision-makers. Current applications cover
a wide range of different areas, from food production or animal
welfare to sustainability or climate change impact; and they are
expected to still increase in future. The scope of the conference
includes findings on established and new Operational Research, Big
Data and Analytics methods in effective decision-making applications
in Agriculture and in the Agri-food industry, including their supply
chain, and also problems in Forestry and in Environment studies.
