[DMANET] Call for Papers: ATMOS 2018


18th Workshop on Algorithmic Approaches for Transportation Modeling,
Optimization, and Systems

   23-24 August 2018, Helsinki, Finland

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.

ATMOS 2018 will be part of ALGO 2018, which also hosts ESA, ALGOCLOUD,



Submission deadline:    Su, 17.06., 24:00 GMT
Notification:           Fr, 20.07.

ATMOS 2018: 23-24 August 2018
ALGO  2018: 20-24 August 2018


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
    Routing and Platform Assignment
    Vehicle Scheduling
    Route Planning
    Crew and Duty Scheduling
    Delay Management
    Routing in Road Networks
    Traffic Guidance
    Electro Mobility

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.



Authors are invited to submit an extended abstract or full paper of at
most 12 pages (including title page and abstract, but not counting
references and 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 The submission must be
received by June 17, 2018. By submitting a paper the authors acknowledge
that in case of acceptance at least one of the authors must register at
ALGO 2018 or ATMOS 2018, attend the conference, and present the paper.



The proceedings of ATMOS 2018 will be published online and as
open-access in the Dagstuhl Open Access Series in Informatics (OASIcs).

Selected papers will be invited for publication in a special issue of

There will be a BEST PAPER award as well as a BEST VGI PAPER award for
the paper that best leverages volunteered geographic information in
meaningful and novel ways.
