Logistics is concerned with the organization and control of processes in space and time in order to transport or manufacture goods and the coordination of the resulting flows of material and information, as well as monetary flows. Complexity and dynamics of logistic networks have reached a level that more and more prevents the processes from being entirely observable and fully controllable, caused by, e.g., a globalized economy, a shift from buyer’s to seller’s markets, and shorter product life cycles. Thus, recent trends in logistics point towards solutions with distributed and self-organizing processes.
We are pleased to announce that the 2nd Workshop on Artificial Intelligence and Logistics has been successfully proposed as a workshop at IJCAI 2011.
AILog-2011 will take place at in Barcelona, Spain, on one day between July 16 and July 18, 2011. Hope to see you there!
