Simulation of Transportation and Intermodal Systems, HMS 2012
Track at the International Conference on Harbour, Maritime & Multimodal Logistics Modelling and Simulation
Track Chair: (a)Toni Guasch, (b)Jaume Figueras
Affiliation: (a), (b)Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (Spain)
There is an increasing pressure to increase the efficiency of transportation systems. The cost of energy and the significant impact of transportation in global warning (15% of CO2 comes from transportation) are key factors that are being taken into account when improving or designing transportations systems. Modelling, simulation and optimization are valuable decision techniques for evaluating and improving transportation and intermodal systems. The focus of this track is on all modes of transportation and intermodality.

Submissions of Extended Abstracts May 15, 2012
Notification of acceptance: June 15, 2012
Final Camera-Ready Submission July 15, 2012
Early Registration: July 01, 2012
Authors' Guidelines (further information author’s instruction section)
Extended abstracts (minimum 2 pages), full draft papers or other proposals should be submitted for the review process through the submission section by May 15, 2012.
The extended abstract or the full draft paper must contain title, authors, affiliations, addresses, main body and references.
Each extended abstract or full draft paper will be reviewed by at least two members of the International Program Committee taking into consideration scientific quality, originality and relevance. Only original papers, written in English will be accepted.
The extended abstract or the full draft paper should be prepared by following the final paper formatting. However any type of paper formatting can be accepted for the first submission.
NOTIFICATION OF ACCEPTANCE
Notification of acceptance will be sent by June 15, 2012.
CAMERA READY PAPER SUBMISSION
The International Program Committee will accept two types of camera ready papers: extended paper (10 pages, 2 columns); regular paper (6 pages, 2 columns) both for regular and special sessions.
The camera ready paper must adhere to the conference template. The .dot file contains the complete instructions for preparing a camera ready copy for the Proceedings. The final version of the paper must be a PDF file.
Your camera ready paper (extended paper or regular paper) in PDF format must be submitted by using the submission section before the July 15, 2012
The page limit for manuscripts is ten (10) pages (included in the author registration fee). Additional pages will require an additional fee.
If your work must be cleared or approved before publication by your institution, company, or governmental agency, please be sure that process will be completed by the due date above or we will not be able to include it in the CD Conference Proceedings.
