[PVS] The 1st International Workshop on Agent-based Mobility,Traffic andTransportation Models, Methodologies and Applications (ABMTRANS'12)


********* CFP ************

The 1st International Workshop on Agent-based Mobility, Traffic and Transportation Models, Methodologies and Applications (ABMTRANS’12)




in conjunction with ANT-2012 conference

Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada (27-29 August 2012)




The 1st International Workshop on Agent-based Mobility, Traffic and Transportation Models, Methodologies and Applications (ABMTRANS 2012) provides an international forum on the latest technologies and research in the field of traffic and transportation modeling using an agent-based approach. ABMTRANS 2012 is organized in the context of work package WP5 of  the European FP7 project DATASIM (http://www.datasim-fp7.eu/). ABMTRANS 2012 will be held in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada (27-29 August 2012) in conjunction with The 3rd International Conference on Ambient Systems, Networks and Technologies (ANT-2012).




This workshop provides a multidisciplinary collaborative forum for researchers and practitioners to submit papers presenting new research results and novel ideas related to the theory or the practice of agent-based traffic and transportation modeling. This workshop also invites researchers to submit their work focusing on the data mining, management and configuration for agent-based traffic and transportation modeling.


Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

•             Agent-based modeling and simulation

•             Agent-human interactions

•             Environment modeling and interaction protocols

•             Data mining, learning and adaptation

•             Marketing decision support

•             Collaboration, cooperation, competition, coalitions in traffic and transportation models

•             Agent-based negotiation of QoS and SLAs in traffic and transportation models

•             Social and emergent behavior in MAS-T (multi-agent systems applied to traffic and transport)

•             Large scale simulation of agent-based microscopic traffic models

•             Calibration and validation of agent-based models for traffic and transportation

•             Role of multi-agent methodologies for complex systems

•             Conceptual modeling of agent-based approach

•             Agent-based freight transportation modeling

•             Multi-modal routing of agents in a dynamic traffic environment

•             Agent-based scheduling to establish synthetic agenda for day-to-day activities




All papers accepted for workshops will be included in the ANT-2012 proceedings, which will be published by Elsevier. The authors must follow Elsevier guidelines as given in ANT-2012 website (http://cs-conferences.acadiau.ca/ant-12/). The number of pages for workshop papers is limited to 6 pages. Authors should submit their contributions electronically in PDF format at: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=abmtrans2012.

The submission processes will be managed by easychair.org. If you have used this system before, you can use the same username and password. If this is your first time using EasyChair, you will need to register for an account by clicking "I have no EasyChair account" button. Upon completion of registration, you will get a notification email from the system and you are ready for submitting your paper. You can upload and re-upload the paper to the system by the submission due date.


The selective outstanding papers presented at the workshops, after further revision, will be considered for publication in journals special issues. In case of any problem with submission, please contact the workshop chair for assistance.


All workshops accepted papers will be printed in the conference proceedings published by Elsevier Science in the open-access Procedia Computer Science series (on-line and CD). Procedia Computer Sciences is hosted on www.Elsevier.com and on Elsevier content platform ScienceDirect (http://www.sciencedirect.com), and will be freely available worldwide. All papers in Procedia will also be indexed by Scopus (http://www.scopus.com) and Engineering Village (Ei) (http://www.engineeringvillage.com). This includes EI Compendex (http://www.ei.org/compendex). All accepted papers will also be indexed in DBLP (http://dblp.uni-trier.de/).
