Call for Paper – The Impact of Virtual, Remote and Real Logistics Labs

The importance of logistics labs in supporting the transition from fundamental to applied research is undisputed. Lately, the Internet (of Things) has changed the scope of these labs. On the one hand the Internet of Things is addressed as a research topic in these labs. On the other hand the Internet supports virtualisation of testing infrastructures and remote access to logistics labs for increased collaboration between researchers across different research disciplines and locations. The goal of the conference is to focus on lab-based research, evaluate its impact in research and education and investigate specific demands, opportunities and challenges.

ImViReLL 2012 provides a venue for researchers from academia and industry interested in future-oriented logistics labs as a nucleus for innovation. The conference addresses research in logistics from a wide range of fields, e.g. engineering, computer science and collaborative research.

Important Dates

Gartner adds the Internet of Things to its famous hype-cycle

Gartner is famous for its hype-cycle, which is quoted in numerous publications and presentations (maybe the hype-cycle is overhyped itself?). Now they have added the Internet of Things before the peak of the hype which relates to ‘early adopters investigate’. I remember how RFID passed through the hype-cycle between 2005 and 2009. In 2010 it vanished without reaching the ‘slope of enlightenment’- hopefully the Internet of Things will not share the same fate…

Entertaining read: Internet of ‘Mysterious’ Things

Paul McCullagh from the University of Ulster has written a fictional story about using the IoT for a marathon run in Berlin. The story is enriched through quotes from Fallada (Alone in Berlin), Shakespeare (MacBeth) and David Bowie. Who says that scientific writing must be boring to read – this paper proves quite opposite. The paper is available for download here.

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.

Important Dates:

  • Submission of papers: October 31, 2011
  • Proposals for workshops and tutorials: December 5, 2011
  • Notification of acceptance: December 12, 2011
  • Pre-proceedings versions due: January 9, 2012
  • Main conference: February 28 – March 1, 2012
  • Conference with satellite events: February 27 – March 2, 2012
  • Post-proceedings contributions due: April 16, 2012

The Internet of Things in Education

Lectures are just one possible opportunity to get students interested in the concept of the Internet of Things. Preparing and presenting papers on specific topics however is even more suited to get students into participating in corresponding research. Usually the information provided through these papers is lost in the cabinets of the lecturer. Here is a different example from Florian Michahelles. He has collected corresponding student papers in seminar proceedings that are available through the Internet. Excellent! A good example to follow.
