Workshop TCA - Second International Workshop on Traffic and Cellular Automata


Cellular Automata are powerful tools for modeling complex systems used in various research fields. One of the growing topics for the last few decades is traffic modeling, which includes vehicular traffic on highway networks, city traffic with signal control and public conveyance. The investigation of such systems is important for both practical and scientific reasons. Reducing traffic congestion contributes to economic efficiency and modeling of traffic flow allows for new insights into nonequilibrium systems of self-driven particles.

The aim of this workshop is to bring together interdisciplinary researchers studying traffic-related topics, and discuss methods for modeling, analysis and practical applications. Topics of either theoretical or applied interest include, but are not limited to the following:

- traffic modeling (highway and urban traffic, public transport etc.)
- analytical methods
- computer simulations
- empirical results, experiments and data analysis
- engineering applications
- traffic networks
 related systems (biological transport, granular flow etc.)


Authors are invited to submit papers according to two contribution categories -- full and short papers -- depending on their length, depth and/or maturity. Papers must comply with the Springer-Verlag format and the maximum length of 5 and 10 pages for short and full contributions, respectively. Formatting style files and further guidelines for formatting can be found at Springer as well as at ACRI 2012 submission page. The submission system is now open and early submissions are welcome. Please prepare your submission in accordance with the rules described above and submit a pdf file via Easychair system.

Accepted papers will be published by Springer-Verlag in a volume of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. This volume will be available by the time of the workshop.

NEW (EXTENDED) Paper submission deadline: April 22, 2012
Notification of paper acceptance or rejection: May 14, 2012
NEW *** Final version of the paper for the proceedings: June 8, 2012/strong>

Details about how to register will be provided in the next days through the registration page of the ACRI conference.
