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. In a globalized economy, these processes become increasingly hard to handle: the resulting logistic networks get complex and show great dynamics, which results in partial observability and more and more prevents centralized process planning. Thus, recent trends in logistics point towards solutions with distributed and self-organizing processes, and methods from AI are increasingly used to tackle the emerging spatio-temporal problems.
We are proud to announce that AILog-2012, the 3rd International Workshop on Artificial Intelligence and Logistics, will be held at ECAI 2012 in Montpellier, France. The date will be either August 27 or August 28.
This year's focus topic will be "Autonomous and Decentralized Approaches in Logistics".
