The Department of International Shipping and
Logistics, the School of Naval Architecture, Ocean and Civil Engineering at Shanghai Jiao Tong
University, China and the Institute of Information Systems at the
University of Hamburg, Germany welcome you to join the 1st International
Conference on Computational Logistics.
comprises the planning and implementation of large/complex logistics
tasks using computations and advanced decision support.
It is applied in
various areas, such as the flow and storage of goods or services as well
as related information from their source to their destination.
Typically, optimization models and algorithms are developed, verified
and applied for planning and executing complex logistics tasks, e.g., for
finding the most efficient scheduling/plan for the transport of
passengers or goods.
These models and algorithms are integrated with
advanced computer technology for getting satisfactory results in
appropriate time even for large scale problem instances and providing
interactivity, visualization etc. for a better understanding and problem
solution. Furthermore, Computational Logistics involves the use of
information systems and modern communication and information technology
(IT) for the design, planning
and control of logistics networks as
well as the complex tasks within them.
This conference will
provide an opportunity for researchers and practitioners in the field of
Computational Logistics to present their latest results and findings in
a fruitful and open-minded environment. Contributions on any topic in
computational logistics are welcome.
The conference venue will be
the Radisson Hotel in Pudong Century Park, 1199 Ying Chun Road, Pudong,
Shanghai 200135, China.
