In conjunction with the 2th International Conference on Emerging Ubiquitous Systems and Pervasive Networks (EUSPN).

November 1 - 4, 2021, Leuven, Belgium.

Description

The 6th International Workshop on Information Fusion for Smart Mobility Solutions (IFSMS'21) provides an international forum on the latest technologies and research in the field of smart mobility solutions. We are living in a world where cars will soon all be very well-equipped with sensors such as GPS sensors, laser radars, infrared parking sensors, rear dead angle cameras, etc. Besides that, the infrastructure itself is likely to soon exploit technologies currently widely used, like smartphones, navigators and digital radio broadcast. Finally, there have been huge advances on traffic simulation, optimization, intensive computational techniques, distributed computing, data networks, wireless connectivity, and many others. If we combine all of this, there is the richest variety ever of information sources available for smart mobility solutions. The technology is out there, and now it is needed to take firm steps towards wisely combining the sources of information into smart applications that make roads safer and ensure a smooth mobility of individuals.

IFSMS 2021 will be held in Leuven, Belgium (1-4 November 2021) in conjunction with the 9th International Conference on Emerging Ubiquitous Systems and Pervasive Networks (EUSPN-2021)

Scope

The aim of the proposed workshop is to enhance profitable discussions on what techniques, software, methodologies, transportation and traffic models, and in general, data fusion techniques are being explored for its use for traffic simulation and mobility management and other intelligent transportation system applications for smart mobility.

The main topics of the IFSMS-21 workshop are (but not restricted to):

  • Agent-based modeling and simulation
  • Data fusion and Smart Transportation
  • Models of autonomous cars or flying vehicles/drones for smart transportation
  • Social and emergent behavior in multi-agent systems applied to traffic and transport
  • Implementation Issues (algorithmic issues, real-world computational demands, real-time constraints in the context of fusion systems for
    transportation infrastructures)
  • Environmental aware smart data fusion applications
  • Advanced architectures for traffic simulation using data mining as real-world input
  • Calibration and validation of agent-based models for traffic and transportation
  • Role of multi-agent methodologies for complex systems
  • Multi-modal routing of agents in a dynamic traffic environment

Important Dates

  • Submission deadline: June 30, 2021
  • Notification: August 4, 2021
  • Final date for camera-ready copy: September 4, 2021 (hard)
  • Workshop: November 1-4, 2021

Submission

All workshop accepted papers will be included in the conference proceeding published by Elsevier Science in the open-access Procedia Computer Science series on-line.

The submitted paper must be formatted according to the guidelines of Procedia Computer Science, Elsevier. You are invited to submit full length papers in PDF format on EasyChair, not exceeding 6 pages in length, in single-column format including diagrams and references, and following the Procedia Computer Science guidelines.
