    5th International Conference on Dynamics in Logistics

    (LDIC 2016)

     Bremen, Germany, February 22 – 25, 2016

    The 5th International Conference on Dynamics in Logistics (LDIC 2016) will be held in Bremen (Germany) from 22nd to 25th of February 2016 jointly with the IFAC MCPL 2016 (IFAC Management and Control of Production and Logistics) and several satellite events. Springer will publish the proceedings of the conference.
    Scope of the Conference
    Dynamical aspects of logistic processes and networks are at the heart of the conference. The spectrum of topics reaches from the modeling, planning and control of processes over supply chain management and maritime logistics to innovative technologies and robotic applications for cyberphysical production and logistic systems. The growing dynamic confronts the area of logistics with completely new challenges: It must become possible to describe, identify and analyze the process changes. Moreover, logistic processes and networks must be redevised to be rapidly and flexibly adaptable to continuously changing conditions.
    LDIC 2016 provides a forum for the discussion of advances in that matter. The conference addresses scientists in logistics, operations research, production engineering, and computer science. It aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners interested in dynamics in logistics.
    Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
    Supply Chain Coordination and Shared Resources
    • New business models
    • Collaborative planning and control
    • Risk management
    Advanced Modelling Techniques for Logistic Networks and Processes
    • Robust and dynamic systems and simulations
    • Automatic model generation and model transformation
    • Sensor data, data analytics, predictive analytics
    Cyber-physical Production and Logistic Systems
    • Distributed planning and control, on-line planning, real-time control
    • Internet of things and services, system-integrated intelligence, sensors, RFID
    • Intra-logistic systems for transport, handling, storage
    Robotics in Logistics
    • Mobile robots, autonomous control, robot-robot collaboration
    • Cognitive systems for handling and picking
    • Human-robot collaboration
    Sector-specific logistics and supply chain management
    • Maritime logistics, port operations, logistics for offshore wind farms
    • Transport, multi-modal transport, seaport hinterland transport
    • Humanitarian Logistics
    Satellite Events
    The main conference will be accompanied by several satellite events. Additional workshops and tutorials are welcome. For any enquiries, please do not hesitate to contact us.
