[DMANET] OR in the Physical Internet at EURO 2018

Dear colleague,

You are invited to submit an abstract for the 29th European Conference on Operational Research in session OR in the Physical Internet organized by Elsa Silva, António Ramos and José Fernando Oliveira.

The 29th European conference on Operational Research, will be held from 8 ‑ 11 July 2018, in Valencia. Details can be found at <>

The new Physical Internet paradigm for supply chain management represents a real and viable alternative to meet the challenges posed. Physical Internet relies on collaborative management models and the extension of the normalized containerization paradigm to all levels of cargo movement and handling to provide a fast, productive, reliable and sustainable supply chain.

This approach introduces new challenges to the majority of operation research problems addressed within a supply chain scope like the vehicle routing problem or the container loading problem, whether by introducing new constraints or by modifying the current ones.


To be considered for presenting an invited abstract in the OR in the Physical Internet stream, submit an abstract (1500 characters maximum, text only ‑ no formulas) summarising the research. You may submit through the euro-online website ( <> You will need a euro account and can create one here if you do not have one.
