The University of Southampton
is pleased to be hosting the 8th International Conference on
Computational Logistics (ICCL'17) at the Grand Harbour Hotel in
Southampton, UK. Authors are kindly invited to submit their
contributions in the area of logistics management, operations, control,
and information systems, relevant to all types of logistics activities
and on any mode of transportation, with a particular focus on practical
cases providing insight and real-world experience.
abstracts for presentation only are also welcome.
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. Previous ICCL conferences were held in:
Shanghai, China, in 2010;
Hamburg, Germany in 2011;
Shanghai, China in 2012;
