[DMANET] ATMOS 2019: second call for papers


ATMOS 2019: Call for papers - deadline 26 June 2019
19th Symposium on Algorithmic Approaches for Transportation Modeling, Optimization, and Systems

12-13 September 2019, Munich, Germany - ATMOS 2019 will be part of ALGO 2019

ATMOS - The Symposium on Algorithmic Approaches for Transportation Modelling, Optimization, and Systems is an international forum for researchers in the area of optimization methods and algorithms to facilitate planning and operational management of freight and passenger transportation and traffic.
The symposium brings together researchers and practitioners who are interested in all aspects of algorithmic methods and models for transport optimization. The symposium 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. Tools and methodologies include those from graph and network algorithms, combinatorial optimization, approximation and online algorithms, stochastic and robust optimization.

Submission deadline: 26 June 2019
Notification: 25 July 2019
Conference: 12-13 September 2019

The symposium welcomes but is not limited to papers addressing the following challenges:
Demand Forecasting
Models for User Behaviour
Design of Pricing Systems
Infrastructure Planning
Multi-modal Transport Optimization
Mobile Applications for Transport
Congestion Modelling and Reduction
Line Planning
Timetable Generation
Routing and Platform Assignment
Vehicle Scheduling
Route Planning
Crew and Duty Scheduling
Real time re-scheduling and disruption management
Delay Management
Routing in Road Networks
Traffic Guidance
Electro Mobility

The symposium 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 26, 2019. By submitting a paper the authors acknowledge that in case of acceptance at least one of the authors must register at ALGO 2019 or ATMOS 2019, attend the conference, and present the paper.

The proceedings of ATMOS 2019 will be published online and as open-access in the Dagstuhl Open Access Series in Informatics (OASIcs).
There will be a Best Paper Award.
