The 5th International Workshop on Agent-based Mobility, Traffic and
Transportation Models, Methodologies and Applications (ABMTRANS-2016)


in conjunction with

The 7th International Conference on Ambient Systems, Networks and
Technologies (ANT-2016)
May 23 - 26, 2016 Madrid, Spain


The ANT-2016 conference dedicates the MSTS track to Modeling and Simulation
in Transportation Sciences while the ABMTRANS-2016 workshop focuses on the
agent-based approach in that domain. Both provide an international forum on
the latest technologies and research in the field of traffic and
transportation modeling. Both are organized by the Transportation Research
Institute (IMOB), Hasselt University, Belgium.


The aim of the ANT-2016 MSTS track is to bring together communities
interested in the computation, knowledge discovery and technology policy
aspects of transportation systems. The organizers of ANT-2016 (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.

The ABMTRANS 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 transportation modeling and simulation
Agent-based negotiation of QoS and SLAs in traffic and transportation models
Agent-based scheduling to establish synthetic agenda for day-to-day
Calibration and validation of agent-based models for traffic and
Collaboration, cooperation, competition, coalitions in traffic and
transportation models, including collaborative multi-modal transport
Conceptual modeling of agent-based approach
Data mining and statistical learning for travel information
Environment modeling and interaction protocols
Human-computer interfaces in intelligent transportation applications
Human factors including adaptive driving, travel behavior, persuasive
Large scale simulation of agent-based microscopic traffic models
Logistics and transportation management
Marketing decision support
Mathematical optimization in traffic engineering and smart city topic
Multi-modal routing of agents in a dynamic traffic environment
Novel applications targeted to health, mobility, livable environment and
Renewable energy sources in transportation
Role of multi-agent methodologies for complex systems
Simulation of traffic, passenger flows, assisted driving or collaborative
Social and emergent behavior in MAS-T (multi-agent systems applied to
traffic and transport)
Social and institutional information related to travel
Traffic flow and transportation modeling
Travel information, including recommender systems and user feedback systems
Uncertain information in collaborative transport and assisted traveling


All ANT-2016 and ABMTRANS-2016 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 (

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 authors must follow Elsevier guidelines as given in ANT-2016 website (
http://cs-conferences.acadiau.ca/ant-16/ ).

For ANT-2016, 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 (
https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ant2016 )in PDF format before the
deadline (see Important Dates).

For ABMTRANS-2016 workshop papers, the number of pages is limited to 6
pages. Authors are requested to submit their contributions electronically
in PDF format at: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=abmtrans16 .
