Welcome to the

8th International Conference
Computational Logistics


October 18-20, 2017 in Southampton, UK

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.

Extended 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:
