Call For Papers

The aim of making transportation better gives rise to very complex and large-scale optimization problems requiring innovative solution techniques and ideas from mathematical optimization, theoretical computer science, and operations research. Tools and methodologies include those from graph and network algorithms, combinatorial optimization, approximation and online algorithms, stochastic and robust optimization.


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

  • Demand Forecasting

  • Models for User Behaviour

  • Design of Pricing Systems

  • Infrastructure Planning

  • Multi-modal Transport Optimization

  • Mobile Applications for Transport

  • Congestion Modelling and Reduction

  • Line Planning

  • Timetable Generation

  • Routing and Platform Assignment

  • Vehicle Scheduling

  • Route Planning

  • Crew and Duty Scheduling

  • Rostering

  • Real time re-scheduling and disruption management

  • Delay Management

  • Routing in Road Networks

  • Traffic Guidance

  • Electro Mobility

The symposium welcomes but is not limited to papers applying and advancing the following techniques:

  • Graph and Network Algorithms

  • Combinatorial Optimization

  • Mathematical Programming

  • Approximation Algorithms

  • Methods for the Integration of Planning Stages, Stochastic and Robust Optimization

  • Online and Real-time Algorithms

  • Algorithmic Game Theory

  • Heuristics for Real-world Instances

  • Simulation Tools


Authors are invited to submit an extended abstract or full paper of at most 12 pages (including title page and abstract, but not counting 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 submisson system at

The submission must be received by July 4, 2019. By submitting a paper the authors acknowledge that in case of acceptance at least one of the authors must register at ALGO 2019 or ATMOS 2019, attend the conference, and present the paper.


There will be a Best Paper Award.
