1. SCOPE

The 11th edition of the ATMOS workshop (ATMOS 2011) will be held in connection with ALGO 2011, hosted by Max Planck Institut für Informatik, and will take place in Saarbrücken, on September 8, 2011.

Since 2000, the series of ATMOS workshops brings together researchers and practitioners who are interested in all aspects of algorithmic methods and models for transportation optimization and provides a forum for the exchange and dissemination of new ideas and techniques.

Transportation networks give rise to very complex and large-scale network optimization problems requiring innovative solution techniques and ideas from mathematical optimization, theoretical computer science, and operations research.
