ATMOS 2022

Scope

The Symposium on Algorithmic Approaches for Transportation Modelling, Optimization, and Systems is an international forum for researchers in the area of algorithms and optimization methods to facilitate planning and operational management of freight and passenger transportation and traffic. It is colocated with ALGO 2022.

Important Dates

  • Paper submission deadline: 27 June 2022 (anywhere on earth)
  • Notification: 29 July 2022
  • Conference: 8-9 September, 2022, in Potsdam, Germany

Call for Papers

ATMOS 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 algorithms, mathematical optimization, theoretical computer science, and operations research.

Paper Submission

Authors are invited to submit high-quality manuscripts reporting original unpublished research in the topics related to the symposium. Simultaneous submission to other journals or conferences with published proceedings is not allowed. By submitting a paper, the authors acknowledge that in case of acceptance at least one of the authors must register for ALGO/ATMOS 2022 and present the paper.

Submissions must be in the form of a single PDF file prepared using the LaTeX OASIcs style file (https://submission.dagstuhl.de/documentation/authors) and must be submitted electronically via the EasyChair submission system (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=atmos2022).

ATMOS 2022 accepts two types of submissions, both of which will be reviewed with the same quality standards by the Program Committee.

Regular paper submissions: A regular paper submission should clearly motivate the importance of the problem being addressed, discuss prior work and its relationship to the paper, explicitly and precisely state its key contributions, and outline the key technical ideas and methods used to achieve the main results. A regular paper submission should not exceed 12 pages including title page and abstract, but excluding references and an optional appendix. Authors should include all necessary details in their submission so that the Program Committee can judge the correctness, importance and originality of their work. Any material (e.g., proofs or experimental results) omitted (from the main part of 12 pages) due to space limitations can be put into the optional appendix, which will be read at the Program Committee’s discretion. Regular papers will be allotted up to 20 pages in the proceedings.

Short paper submissions: A short paper submission may present preliminary results or work-in-progress on a specific topic. Authors should clearly motivate the importance of the problem being addressed, discuss prior work and its relationship to the paper, explicitly and precisely state the paper’s key contributions, and outline the key technical ideas and methods used to achieve the main claims. A short paper submission should have at least 4 and at most 6 pages. Authors should provide sufficient details in their submission so that the Program Committee can judge the correctness, importance and originality of their work. Short papers will be allotted up to 6 pages in the proceedings.
