Algorithmic methods have reached a state of maturity as a consequence of decades of research.Despite its success, the current state of algorithmicresearch still faces severe di?culties, or cannot cope at all, with highly complex and data intensivereal-worldapplicationsinlarge-scalenetworks.Aprominentexampleis given by railway networks, which are used to model the complex systems of ra- way transportation. The complexity and size of optimization problems arising in railway transportation still pose challenges for algorithmic research. This volume deals with problems arising in railway optimization, i.e., with planning and scheduling problems over severaltime horizons.Di?erent challe- ing problems from the railway world are discussed from the point of view of computer science, algorithms, operations research, and discrete mathematics. The ?rst part of the volume consists of state-of-the-art papers that were selected after an open call that followed a Dagstuhl Seminar on Algorithmic Methods for Railway Optimization in June 2004. We had 12 submissions that underwent the standard peer review process, out of which 8 were selected for publication in this volume. The second part consists of the nine accepted papers in the 4th Workshop on Algorithmic Methods and Models for Optimization of Railways (ATMOS 2004)thattookplaceinBergen,Norway,September 2004.Theseriesof ATMOS workshops constitute a forum to present and discuss models, algorithms, and results related to railway optimization problems. ATMOS addresses researchers andpractitionersworkingincomputerscience,discreteoptimization,algorithms, oroperationsresearch.The ATMOS contributionscome fromallthese ?elds and re?ect the interdisciplinary character of railway optimization.
