First International Workshop on Information Fusion for Smart Mobility
Solutions (IFSMS14)

In conjunction with the 5th International Conference on Emerging Ubiquitous
Systems and Pervasive Networks EUSPN 2014


22-25 September, 2014, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada.


The 1st International Workshop on Information Fusion for Smart Mobility
Solutions (IFSMS’14) provides an international forum on the latest
technologies and research in the field of smart mobility solutions. We are
living in a world where cars will soon all be very well-equipped with
sensors such as GPS sensors, laser radars, infrared parking sensors, rear
dead angle cameras, etc. Besides that, the infrastructure itself is likely
to soon exploit technologies currently widely used, like smartphones,
navigators and digital radio broadcast. Finally, there have been huge
advances on traffic simulation, optimization, intensive computational
techniques, distributed computing, data networks, wireless connectivity,
and many others. If we combine all of this, there is the richest variety
ever of information sources available for smart mobility solutions. The
technology is out there, and now it is needed to take firm steps towards
wisely combining the sources of information into smart applications that
make roads safer and ensure a smooth mobility of individuals.

IFSMS 2014 will be held in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada (22-25 September
2014) in conjunction with the 5th International Conference on Emerging
Ubiquitous Systems and Pervasive Networks (EUSPN-2014).


The aim of the proposed workshop is to enhance profitable discussions on
what techniques, software, methodologies, transportation and traffic
models, and in general, data fusion techniques are being explored for its
use for traffic simulation and mobility management and other intelligent
transportation system applications for smart mobility.

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

Agent-based modeling and simulation

Data fusion and Smart Transportation

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

Implementation Issues such as Algorithmic Issues, Real-World Computational
Demands, Real-Time Constraints in the context of Fusion systems for
Transportation Infrastructures

Environmental Aware Smart Data Fusion applications

Advanced Architectures for Traffic Simulation using Data Mining as
Real-World input

Calibration and validation of agent-based models for traffic and

Role of multi-agent methodologies for complex systems

Multi-modal routing of agents in a dynamic traffic environment
