ABMTRANS 2017 : The 6th International Workshop on Agent-based Mobility, Traffic and Transportation Models, Methodologies and Applications


When May 16, 2017 - May 19, 2017
Where Madeira Portugal
Submission Deadline Dec 22, 2016
Notification Due Feb 13, 2017
Final Version Due Mar 13, 2017

Call For Papers


The ANT-2017 conference dedicates the MSTS track to Modeling and Simulation
in Transportation Sciences while the ABMTRANS-2017 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-2017 MSTS 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)
welcome information technology application 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, (activity-based) demand
prediction, 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 and
activity-based scheduling to establish synthetic agenda for day-to-day
activities (travel demand prediction) Calibration and validation of
(agent-based) models for traffic and transportation 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, pervasive technology 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 sustainability Renewable energy
sources in transportation Role of multi-agent methodologies for complex
systems Simulation of traffic, passenger flows, assisted driving or
collaborative transport 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-2017 and ABMTRANS-2017 accepted papers will be included 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

The submission processes will be managed by 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-2017 website ( ).

For ANT-2017, 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).

For ABMTRANS-2017 workshop papers, the number of pages is limited to 6
pages. Authors are requested to submit their contributions electronically in
PDF format at: .
