3rd International Conference on Dynamics in Logistics (LDIC 2012) Call for Paper


The 3rd International Conference on Dynamics in Logistics (LDIC 2012) will be held in Bremen from the 27th of February to the 2nd of March 2012 together with several satellite events. Post-proceedings are planned to be published by Springer in the same way as for the previous LDIC conferences in 2007 and 2009.

The conference targets the identification, analysis, and description of the dynamics of logistic processes and networks. The spectrum of topics ranges from modeling and planning of processes and innovative methods like autonomous control and knowledge management to the new technologies provided by radio frequency identification, mobile communication, and networking. The growing dynamics in the area of logistics poses completely new challenges: logistic processes and networks have to rapidly and flexibly adapt to continuously changing conditions.

LDIC 2012 provides a venue for researchers from academia and industry interested in the technical advances in dynamics in logistics. The conference addresses research in logistics from a wide range of fields, e.g. engineering, computer science and operations research. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • logistic processes,
  • production and transport logistics,
  • maritime logistics,
  • logistic process modelling,
  • supply chain (event) management,
  • logistics security,
  • learning in logistics,
  • Internet of Things and Services,
  • radio frequency identification (RFID),
  • meshed sensor networks in logistics,
  • mobile HCI concepts for production and logistics,
  • mobile communication,
  • robotics in logistics,
  • smart transport technologies,
  • IT for green logistics,
  • mass customization,
  • performance assessment,
  • knowledge management,
  • virtual enterprises and logistic networks,
  • global networks,
  • sustainable collaboration,
  • intermodality,
  • autonomous control,
  • synchronization, transition, and transformation.
