The impact of transportation and logistics on the modern economy and society has been growing steadily over the last few decades. The worldwide division of labour, the connection of distributed production centres, and the increased mobility of individuals lead to an increased demand for efficient solutions to problems in transport, logistics, and supply chain management.
Along with the development of more powerful computer systems, design and optimisation techniques like evolutionary computing approaches have been developed that allow us to use computers for the systematic design, optimisation, and improvement of systems. EvoTransLog, Evolutionary Computation in Transportationand Logistics, addresses all aspects of the use of evolutionary computation, local search, and other nature-inspired optimisation and design techniques for transport, logistics, and supply chain management.
EvoTransLog2010 is part of Evo* 2010, which joins Europe's premier co-located conferences in the field of evolutionary computing, namely EuroGP, EvoCOP, EvoBIO, and the EvoApplications Conference on the Application of Evolutionary Computation. EvoTransLog gives researchers in the above-named fields, as well as people from industry, an opportunity to present their latest research and to discuss current developments and applications, besides fostering closer future interaction between members of different scientific communities.
Relevant application topics include (but are not limited to):
- transportation and supply networks
- supply chain management
- freight and passenger services
- tracking and tracing
- fleet and order management
- modelling and traffic management
- traffic simulation
- individual and public transportation
- inventory optimisation
- routing and scheduling
Accepted papers will appear in the proceedings of Evo*, published in a volume of the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science, which will be available at the Conference.
Accepted papers can be found here.
Submit your manuscript, at most 10 A4 pages long, in Springer LNCS format no later than November 4, 2009 using the online submission tool at http://myreview.csregistry.org/evoapplications10/.
Please refer to Springer LNCS web site for the paper formatting instructions.
Submissions must be original and not published elsewhere, and will be peer reviewed by at least two members of the program committee.
The review process is double-blind and therefore the paper must not contain any references that would identify the authors.
The authors of accepted papers will have to improve their paper on the basis of the reviewers' comments and will be asked to send a camera ready version of their manuscripts.
At least one author of each accepted paper has to register for the conference no later than the early registration deadline, and at least one author has to attend the conference and present the paper.
