The Institute of Information
Systems at the University of Hamburg welcomes you to join the 5th International Conference on Computational Logistics (ICCL'14).
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; please have a look at the Call for
Papers for details. The 1st ICCL was held in Shanghai, China, in
2010, the 2nd in Hamburg, Germany in 2011, the 3rd, again, in Shanghai, China
in 2012, and the 4th one year later in Kopenhagen, Denmark.
