3rd Workshop on Modeling, Computing and Data Handling for Marine Transportation (MCDMT 2018), July 23, 2018, Zakynthos, Greece
in association with the
9th International Conference on Information, Intelligence, Systems and Applications ( IISA 2018 )
Workshop Chairs: Charalampos Konstantopoulos (University of Piraeus, Greece), Grammati Pantziou (University of West Attica, Greece)
The Workshop on Modeling, Computing and Data Handling for Marine Transportation (MCDMT 2018) is going to take place in Zakynthos, Greece, on July 23, 2018, in conjunction with the 9th International Conference on Information, Intelligence, Systems and Applications (IISA 2018). Nowadays, advancements on Marine Transportation require the synergy of both computer science and maritime science and the technical focus of the workshop is upon the latest developments on Computing Methodologies for Marine Transportation.
Papers with novel theoretical as well as applied research are welcome for submission. We would like to invite papers addressing research efforts that aim at making sea transportation more effective and safer, targeting complex and large-scale optimization problems with conflicting criteria, requiring innovative solution techniques and ideas from mathematical optimization, theoretical computer science, massive data analysis and operations research.
Submissions are solicited in, but not limited to, the following areas:
- Graph and Network algorithms for Marine Transportation
- Combinatorial optimization techniques for Marine Transportation
- Weather Routing
- Environmentally Safe Shipping
- Safety and Security of Maritime Shipping
- Risk and Safety Analysis, Assessment and Prediction
- Piracy Protection
- GIS in Maritime Applications
- Spatiotemporal and Marine Data Handling
- Route Planning and Monitoring
- Maritime Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery Applications: surveillance, maritime traffic control, anomaly detection, emergency management, situation recognition, etc.
- Decision Support Tools for Marine Transportation
- Integration of Heterogeneous Marine Data Sources
