ATSS 2010 - CALL FOR PAPERS - DEADLINE: June 28th, 2010

4th Workshop on
Artificial Transportation Systems and Simulation

To be held at the

13th International IEEE Conference on Intelligent Transportation Systems
Madeira Island, Portugal, September 19–22, 2010


Aim and Scope:
The 2010’s edition of ATSS is the 4rd of a series of workshops aiming
to foster the discussion on issues concerning the development of
Artificial Transportation Systems and Simulation as a means to devise,
test and validate ITS-based technologies. With the ability to
integrate different transportation models and solutions in a virtual
environment, ATSS serve as an aid to support decisions made by
engineers and practitioners in a controlled and safe manner. They also
provide a natural ground where new approaches can be experimented
while avoiding natural drawbacks of dealing directly with real
critical domains.

On the basis of theories and methodologies borrowed from a wide
spectrum of disciplines, such as the Social Sciences, Distributed
Computing, Artificial Intelligence, Multi-agent Systems, Virtual
Reality and many others, many important issues arise which challenge
and motivate researchers and practitioners from multidisciplinary fields,
as well as different technical and scientific communities.

Topics of Interest:
Topics of interest to the Workshop include (but are not limited to):

* Agent-based modelling and simulation;
* Real agent architectures;
* Hardware and software-in-the-loop simulation;
* Agent-human interactions;
* Environment modelling and interaction protocols;
* Learning and adaptation;
* Collaboration, cooperation, competition, coalitions in traffic and
transportation models;
* Social and emergent behaviour in MAS-T (multi-agent systems applied
to traffic and transport);
* Large scale simulation of agent-based microscopic traffic models;
* Calibration and validation of agent-based models for traffic and

Paper Submission:
The workshop welcomes and encourages contributions reporting on
original research, work under development and experiments addressing
and stimulating discussion on diverse issues on ATSS. Papers will be
reviewed on the basis of technical quality, relevance, significance,
and clarity, and those selected for presentation at the Workshop will
be included in the ITSC2010 Workshops/Tutorials CD/DVD (containing
papers, videos, presentations, and other sort of media). After the
ATSS Workshop, authors will be invited to revise and improve their
papers, including comments and suggestions gathered during the forum,
for inclusion in the book "Advances in ATS," to be published by

Contributions are welcome as both short and long papers and must be
electronically submitted in IEEE standard-format, in PDF files, for
peer-review. Detailed submission instructions can be found on the
Workshop Web site at http://www.fe.up.pt/~ATSSseries/, under the
Submissions option.

Important Dates:
* Paper submission deadline: June 28th, 2010
* Notification of acceptance: July 15th, 2010
* Camera-ready copy due: July 30th, 2010
