2nd International Conference on Dynamics in Logistics
(LDIC 2009)
Bremen, Germany, August 17 – 21, 2009

The 2nd International Conference on Dynamics in Logistics (LDIC 2009) will be held in Bremen (Germany) in the third week of August 2009 together with several satellite events. The first conference was held in Bremen in 2007. Proceedings will be published by Springer.

Scope of the Conference

The conference is concerned with the identification, analysis, and description of the dynamics of logistic processes and networks. The spectrum reaches from the modelling and planning of processes over innovative methods like autonomous control and knowledge management to the new technologies provided by radio frequency identification, mobile communication, and networking. The growing dynamic confronts the area of logistics with completely new challenges: It must become possible to rapidly and flexibly adapt logistic processes and networks to continuously changing conditions. LDIC 2009 provides a forum for the discussion of advances in that matter.
The conference is addressed to scientists in logistics, operations research, and computer science and aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners interested in dynamics in logistics. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
• logistic processes
• logistic networks
• autonomous control
• synchronization
• mobile communication
• logistic process modelling
• security
• learning in logistics
• radio frequency identification
• supply chain (event) management
• robotics in logistics
• performance assessment
• sustainable collaboration
• intermodality
• mass customization
• knowledge management
• global networks
• smart container technology
• cold chains
• maritime logistics
• production logistics

Satellite Events

The main conference will be accompanied by several satellite events including a doctoral symposium. Everyone who would like to organize a workshop or a tutorial is asked to contact the satellite events chair.
