The committee of the 4th International Conference on Computational
Logistics is inviting high quality papers in the field of logistics
management and operations and information systems as well as related
issues. Against the background of
increasing demands from society for better quality of life and growing
environmental problems on the one hand and existing cost and capacity
requirements on the other hand a discussion of promising solution
concepts and best practice applications seems to be necessary more than
ever. Of particular interest are contributions based on heuristic and
formal approaches as well as on innovative IT tools for decision support
in case of inhomogeneous objective systems.

We consider all varieties of logistics activities, taking into account
any mode of transportation or manner of cargo storage, respectively.
Special emphasis will be put on studies about real-world cases providing
practical experiences and insights of the odds and challenges to balance
both (individual) economic interests and the requirements of public
welfare. A non-exhaustive list of topical areas for this conference is
as follows:

* Planning tools and tool-based environments for design of
logistics supra- and infrastructure
* State-of-the-art in computational analysis and evaluation of
environmental impact induced by logistic operations (e.g., air,
noise or light pollution)
* Sustainable design and operations of logistics facilities
* Decision support in logistics
* Integrated planning and control of logistic nodes and their
* Theoretical and empirical analysis of logistics operations
* Modeling, simulation and evaluation of the involve
* Heuristics and meta-heuristics implementation in logistics
related models
* ERP and any other information systems related applications in
* Strategies and operations of logistics service providers
* Service integration of agents or carriers within the
logistics business
* Consolidation and distribution for agents or shippers within
the logistics business
* Cooperation in maritime supply chains / integration of ports
in intermodal hinterland systems
* Advantages and challenges of participative planning / support
of multimedia and planning tools
* Fleet management: comparison of land-based and maritime
systems / integration of sustainability aspects

Conference proceedings
The conference proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in the
Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. Full paper submissions are
limited to 15 LNCS pages including references. Extended abstracts are
also accepted for presentation only. The abstracts will be reviewed to the
same standards of quality as full papers, but will not be part of the proceedings.

Further information will be provided on the conference webpage.

We kindly invite you to participate in the ICCL 2013.
