[DMANET] Call for papers: Special Issue of the EURO Journal on Transportation and Logistics

Special Issue of the EURO Journal on Transportation and Logistics
on "Packing problems arising in transportation and logistics"

Aim of the special issue is to provide an insight of the most recent
results of the research in new variants of packing and loading problems
arising in transportation and logistics applications. In particular, new
problems arising in Smart City, Last Mile integration, and City Logistics
are welcome, as well as in broader definitions of existing packing and
loading problems, including multi-dimensional and multi-attribute
problems, integration between packing and routing, and stochastic
problems. A special focus will be given to tactical and strategic
problems, as well as to the management of uncertainty of the parameters.
Possible topics include (but are not limited to):
- Integration of packing and routing
- Uncertainty management and stochastic packing problems
- Introduction of realistic additional constraints
- Impact of additional operational constraints on packing algorithms
- Generalized packing algorithms
- Multi-attribute packing problems
- Rich and generalized packing problems
