Patrick McDonagh and Liam Murphy are organisers of a special session at the 17th IEEE/ACM DS-RT 2013.


Special Session on Simulation and Real Time Applications for Road Traffic Management

This special session focuses on simulation tools and real time applications in relation to road traffic management and prediction for smart cities, from both the decision maker perspective as well as the end user point of view. Loads of data (e.g. real-time traffic information) and new facilities (e.g. communication devices) are available out there and force engineering companies, road authorities, and communications experts to redesign their solutions. We aim at bringing together industrial experts and researchers from academia to present their results and discuss the challenges related to real time traffic management and simulation for Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS).

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Distributed Traffic Simulation
  • Real-Time Data Aggregation and Communication
  • Data Collection in Road Networks
  • Real Time Traffic Prediction Algorithms
  • Vehicles Routing Algorithms under Real Time Traffic Constraints
  • Visual Tools for Road Traffic Management Systems

PAPER SUBMISSION AND REVIEW

Submitted manuscripts must be in standard IEEE two-column format that is used for IEEE conference proceedings and must not exceed "8 pages" (2-page extension allowed), including figures, tables and references. Standard IEEE templates for Microsoft Word or LaTeX formats can be found at: http://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/publishing/templates.html

A submission may present preliminary results, propose new research direction, provide insightful retrospective, or offer a provocative viewpoint on important wireless and mobile networks topic. Papers will be selected based on their likelihood of generating insightful technical discussions at the special session and influencing future research. Relevant attributes include originality, technical merit, clarity, and technical relevance. Papers must be submitted in PDF format through EDAS (https://edas.info/N14613 - ("DS-RT 2013")). All papers will be peer reviewed and the comments will be provided to the authors. Consistent with standard scholarly practice, the authors should not have substantially similar work in review anywhere else. The accepted papers are to be included into IEEE Xplore.


IMPORTANT DATES

Full paper submission deadline: June 15th, 2013 (23:59 EDT) Paper acceptance notification: July 20th, 2013
