The 8th International Conference on Ambient Systems, Networks and
Technologies (ANT-2017)

(Track on Modeling and Simulation in Transportation Science)


Madeira, Portugal (16 - 19 May 2017)

ANT-2017 is a leading international conference for researchers and industry
practitioners to share their new ideas, original research results and
practical development experiences from all Ambient Systems, Networks and
Technologies related areas. The ANT-2017 will be held in conjunction with
the International Conference on Sustainable Energy Information Technology


The goal of the ANT-2017 conference is to provide an international forum
for scientists, engineers, and managers in academia, industry, and
government to address recent research results and to present and discuss
their ideas, theories, technologies, systems, tools, applications, work in
progress and experiences on all theoretical and practical issues arising in
the ambient systems paradigm, infrastructures, models, and technologies
that have significant contributions to the advancement of ambient systems
theory, practices and their applications.

At ANT-2017, there is a dedicated track on Modeling and Simulation in
Transportation Sciences (MSTS) organized by the Transportation Research
Institute (IMOB), Hasselt University, Belgium. This aim of this track is to
bring together communities interested in the computation, knowledge
discovery and technology policy aspects of transportation systems. The
organizers of ANT-2017 (MSTS track) welcomes papers from researchers in the
domains of transportation sciences and engineering, computer science, urban
and regional planning, civil engineering, geography, geo-informatics and
related disciplines to submit papers for consideration for presentation and
for publication in the conference proceedings.

Topics of interest in the MSTS track include (but are not limited to):

· Collaborative transport, including collaborative multi-modal transport

· Data mining and statistical learning for travel information

· Human factors including adaptive driving, travel behavior, persuasive

· Human-computer interfaces in intelligent transportation applications

· Logistics and transportation management

· Mathematical optimization in traffic engineering

· Novel applications targeted to health, mobility, liveability and

· Renewable energy sources in transportation

· Simulation of traffic, passenger flows, assisted driving or collaborative

· Social and institutional information related to travel

· Traffic flow and transportation model

· Travel information, including recommender systems and user feedback

· Uncertain information in collaborative transport and assisted traveling


All ANT-2017 accepted papers will be printed in the conference proceedings
published by Elsevier Science in the open-access Procedia Computer Science
series (on-line). Procedia Computer Sciences is hosted on www.Elsevier.com
and on Elsevier content platform ScienceDirect (www.sciencedirect.com), and
will be freely available worldwide. All papers in Procedia will also be
indexed by Scopus (www.scopus.com) and Engineering Village (Ei) (
www.engineeringvillage.com). This includes EI Compendex (
www.ei.org/compendex). The papers will contain linked references, XML
versions and citable DOI numbers. You will be able to provide a hyperlink
to all delegates and direct your conference website visitors to your
proceedings. All accepted papers will also be indexed in DBLP (

Submitted technical papers must be no longer than 8 pages for full papers
and 5 pages for short papers including all figures, tables and references.
Authors are requested to submit their papers electronically using the
online conference management system in PDF format before the deadline (see
Important Dates).

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.

Please consider and plan for submitting papers with your students and
encourage your colleagues, research group members and fellow scientists to
contribute and participate in this conference. Please also encourage and
invite friends to organize workshops. Selected papers will be invited for
publication, in the special issues of:
