3rd International Conference on Dynamics in Logistics
(LDIC 2012)
Bremen, Germany, February 27 – March 1, 2012

The 3rd International Conference on Dynamics in Logistics (LDIC 2012) will be held in Bremen (Germany) from 27th of February to 1st of March 2012 together with a Doctoral Workshop. Post-proceedings are planned to be published by Springer in the same way as for the previous LDIC conferences in 2007 and 2009.

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 2012 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
• 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)
• mashed 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
• agility
• autonomous control
• synchronization, transition, and transformation
• integrated production and distribution planning

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 one of the satellite events chairs.
