ATMOS 2020 - Call for papers

ATMOS 2020 20th Symposium on Algorithmic Approaches for Transportation Modeling, Optimization, and Systems 7-8 September 2020, Pisa, Italy - part of ALGO 2020

Submission deadline: 24 June 2020


The Symposium on Algorithmic Approaches for Transportation Modelling, Optimization, and Systems ( is an international forum for researchers in the area of algorithms and optimization methods to facilitate planning and operational management of freight and passenger transportation and traffic.

ATMOS brings together researchers and practitioners who are interested in all aspects of algorithmic methods and models for transport optimization. The symposium provides a forum for the exchange and dissemination of new ideas and techniques. The aim of making transportation better gives rise to very complex and large-scale optimization problems requiring innovative solution techniques and ideas from algorithms, mathematical optimization, theoretical computer science, and operations research.


Submission deadline: 24 June 2020

Author Notification: 24 July 2020

Symposium: 7-8 September 2020


Authors are invited to submit an extended abstract or full paper of at most 12 pages (including title page and abstract, but excluding references and an optional appendix).

Submissions must be formatted in LaTeX, using the OASIcs style file: The paper should contain a succinct statement of the issues and of their motivation, a summary of the main results, and a brief explanation of their significance, accessible to non-specialist readers. Proofs omitted due to space constraints can be put into an appendix to be read by the program committee members at their discretion.

Papers must be submitted electronically via the EasyChair submission system at

By submitting a paper, the authors acknowledge that in case of acceptance at least one of the authors must register at ALGO 2020, attend the conference, and present the paper. Attendance and presentation can be either physical (if there are no safety concerns due to the covid-19), or virtual (in case of remaining safety concerns or travel restrictions).


The symposium welcomes but is not limited to papers addressing the following topics:

- Congestion Modelling and Reduction - Crew and Duty Scheduling - Demand Forecasting - Delay Management - Design of Pricing Systems - Electro Mobility - Infrastructure Planning - Intelligent Transportation Systems - Models for User Behaviour - Line Planning - Mobile Applications for Transport - Mobility-as-a-Service - Multi-modal Transport Optimization - Routing and Platform Assignment - Route Planning in Road and Public Transit Networks - Rostering - Timetable Generation - Tourist Tour Planning - Traffic Guidance - Vehicle Scheduling

The symposium welcomes but is not limited to papers applying and advancing the following techniques: Algorithmic Game Theory, Approximation Algorithms, Combinatorial Optimization, Graph and Network Algorithms, Heuristics and Meta-heuristics, Mathematical Programming, Methods for the Integration of Planning Stages, Online and Real-time Algorithms, Simulation Tools, Stochastic and Robust Optimization.


There will be a Best Paper Award.
