Efficient solution of railway optimization problems require a coordinated interdisciplinary effort from various areas in mathematical optimization and theoretical computer science, including graph and network algorithms, theory of computation, approximation algorithms, combinatorial optimization, algorithm engineering, and formal methods.
The goal of the workshop is to provide a forum for the exchange and dissemination of new ideas, techniques, and research in the field of railway optimization. In particular, the workshop is meant to bring together researchers from the above areas interested in ALL aspects of algorithmic methods and models for railway optimization, including the development of formal mathematical models and of efficient algorithms as well as experimental studies, or useful prototype implementations.
ATMOS takes place the fourth time. ATMOS 2004 will be part of ALGO 2004.
Papers are solicited in all aspects of algorithmic methods and models for railway optimization problems including (but not limited to):
Authors are invited to submit a full paper (max 15 pages) by e-mail, including their fax number and e-mail address to
Accepted papers will be published in the Springer series "Lecture Notes in Computer Science" together with other selected papers in this field. A final copy of each accepted paper is required by September 1, 2004.
The workshop is part of ALGO 2004, located in Bergen, Norway
