Call For Papers

The 6th International Conference on Ambient Systems, Networks and Technologies (ANT-2015)
(Track on Modeling and Simulation in Transportation Science)
London, U.K. (2 - 5 June 2015)

ANT-2015 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-2015 will be held in conjunction with the International Conference on Sustainable Energy Information Technology (SEIT)).


The goal of the ANT-2015 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-2015, 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-2015 (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 technology

· Human-computer interfaces in intelligent transportation applications

· Logistics and transportation management

· Mathematical optimization in traffic engineering

· Novel applications targeted to health, mobility, liveability and sustainability

· Renewable energy sources in transportation

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

· Social and institutional information related to travel

· Traffic flow and transportation model

· Travel information, including recommender systems and user feedback systems

· Uncertain information in collaborative transport and assisted traveling


All ANT-2015 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 and on Elsevier content platform ScienceDirect (, and will be freely available worldwide. All papers in Procedia will also be indexed by Scopus ( and Engineering Village (Ei) ( This includes EI 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).
