ICPLT 2013, CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
1st Interdisciplinary Conference on Production, Logistics, and Traffic
March 20-21, 2013. Darmstadt, Germany
ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
Megatrends like increasing volatility, digitalization, globalization and urbanization bring up new challenges for production, logistics, and traffic. Companies increasingly benefit from complex global value networks. At the same time transport infrastructure reaches its limits due to rising freight transport. As a consequence transport and mobility is constrained and traffic becomes a limiting factor in production. Therefore, public authorities that want to tackle these effects have to consider developments in Production and Logistics.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
In that sense, the objective of the ICPLT 2013 is to build a dialog platform among members from different industries as well as scientists and public authorities, which are interested in future solutions for handling the growing interdependencies between production, logistics, and traffic and developing possible solutions.
The two-day conference will follow a series of workshops with more than 40 invited experts dealing with interdisciplinary questions concerning core topics organized in the following sequences:
- Urban Production and Logistics (Sequence 1)
As a megatrend of the future, rapidly intensified urbanization comes along with major challenges for production, logistics, and traffic across value chains. Five speeches from experts and top managers will deal with the implications and present new solutions.
- Enablement through Integration of Systems in Production, Logistics, and Traffic (Sequence 2) Sophisticated design, implementation, and utilization of information technology present a considerable opportunity for creating synergies and for leveraging opportunities across production, logistics, and traffic. This sequence focuses on future concepts and technologies for further system-integration of these three disciplines.
- Organizing Traffic Management of the Future (Sequence 3)
Increasing freight traffic emphasizes the need for a systematically organized traffic management that addresses supply and demand in a sustainable way. In this sequence, experts from different fields approach the subject from various angles, integrating the aims and objectives of public authorities and private production and logistics enterprises.
- Distributed Value Creation (Sequence 4)
Recent trends like increasing volatility, globalization, and digitalisation are currently leading to increased complexity in value networks. In this sequence, five experts from industry and academia will present their views on impacts, limitations, opportunities, and risks of distributed value creation for tomorrow's supply chains.
