Workshop TCA - Second International Workshop on Traffic and Cellular Automata
AIMS and SCOPE
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:
SUBMISSIONS AND PUBLICATION
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.
