Apologies for cross posting10th INFORMS Transportation Science and Logistics Society Workshop
"Transportation and logistics prospects considering digitalization and autonomous technologies"
June 8 – 10, 2022
2nd CALL FOR ABSTRACTS
NHH Norwegian School of Economics and The University of Bergen are pleased to announce the Call for Abstracts for the 10th INFORMS Transportation Science and Logistics Society Workshop. The Workshop will be held in Bergen, Norway, on June 8-10, 2022.
Main theme of the workshop: Transportation and logistics prospects considering digitalization and autonomous technologies
Advances in communications are now affecting every aspect of society. Among those are transportation and logistics, where digital platforms are allowing to capture and exchange data constantly. The Internet of Things is now allowing us to stay connected with virtually anything, while also allowing devices to connect and interact. Likewise, the development of autonomous technologies is progressing at a fast pace. Drones, self-driving cars, unmanned vessels, and robotic handling systems are examples of such technologies. These are motivating a number of new problems in transportation and logistics.
We foresee abstract submissions discussing how digital platforms, data exchange, tracking and autonomy can improve, or even redefine, the planning of logistics and transportation throughout the chain from the ports to the last mile delivery.
Besides submissions linked to the main theme of the workshop, we will also welcome contributions in the broad scope of transportation and logistics. This includes modelling, methodological, theoretical, and applied works
Instructions for contributors
The submissions should be extended abstracts of 2 to 4 pages in length. To ensure all presentations are of the highest quality, the extended abstracts should highlight the main contributions of the research and include outcomes of computational studies, if applicable. Accepted abstracts will appear in the Workshop Program.
Scientific quality is the main criterion when reviewing the abstracts. In addition, sessions involving practitioners will be given special consideration.
