      Second Call for Papers
      Agent-based Approaches for Transportation Modelling and Optimisation
      (AATMO’'2013) Workshop, 22nd-24th May 2013, Salamanca, Spain.

      The Agent-based Approaches for Transportation Modelling and Optimisation
      (AATMO’2013) workshop, is associated with the 11th
      Conference on Practical Applications of Agents and Multi-Agent Systems
      (PAAMS 2013), taking place on 22nd-24th May 2013 in Salamanca, Spain

      The aim of the workshop is to gather and present different types of the
      applications of multi-agent and agent-based approaches for modelling and
      solving problems related to transport and traffic modelling and
      optimisation. The nature of this group of problems makes them an
      interesting field for applying multi-agent systems because of the
      varying degree of autonomy of their decision elements interacting with
      each other, their distributed and decentralised character, as well as of
      the dynamics and varying levels of reliability and correctness of the
      knowledge constructing their environment models.

      We especially encourage the submission of papers concerning methods of
      constructing vehicle paths, taking into consideration different aspects
      which influence the attractiveness of selected roads and locations, as
      well as of the dynamics of the criterions and conditions of the
      environment. Different models determining destinations to be visited may
      be taken into account, including sets of shipments to be delivered,
      public transport schedules, individual preferences for leisure
      itineraries or pedestrian behaviours. Special attention is given to the
      aspects of construction and optimisation of multi-modal paths.
      The methods of traffic optimisation using intelligent road information
      systems and advanced adaptive mechanisms of intersection control are
      also a domain of interest. In order to solve these problems, different
      methods in agent-based and multi-agent systems may be applied, which
      include negotiations, planning, organisation models, as well as
      heuristic, machine learning and data mining algorithms.

      The scope of interest includes, however is not limited to the
      application of agent-based technologies to:
      * Route planning, scheduling and their dynamic modification,
      * Construction of multimodal paths,
      * Line planning for public transport,
      * The choice of optimal and efficient decision strategies in
      transportation and traffic systems using machine learning and
      data-mining methods,
      * Autonomy/decentralisation of decision entities and quality of
      solutions in transportation systems,
      * Intelligent traffic control systems based on agents,
      * Adaptation to new decision strategies and changing state of the
      environment in transportation systems,
      * Intelligent composition and management of transportation units,
      * Intelligent management of shipment composition, storing, freight
      handling and trans-shipments,
      * Modelling human agent (pedestrian, driver, …) behaviour,
      * Agent coordination, platoons, groups,
      * Innovative services in transportation, public transport, traffic control.
