    4th International Conference on Dynamics in Logistics
    (LDIC 2014)
    Bremen, Germany, February 10 – 14, 2014

    The 4th International Conference on Dynamics in Logistics (LDIC 2014) will be held in Bremen (Germany) from 10th to 14th of February 2014 together with a Doctoral Workshop and several satellite events. As in the past LDIC post-proceedings will be published by Springer.
    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 2014 provides a forum for the discussion of advances in that matter. The conference is addressed to scientists in logistics, operations research, production engineering, and computer science. It 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
    • retail logistics
    • big data
    • Internet of Things and Services
    • Radio Frequency Identification (RFID)
    • Cyber-Physical-Systems
    • Industry 4.0
    • mashed sensor networks in logistics
    • mobile HCI concepts for production and logistics
    • mobile communication
    • robotics in logistics
    • smart transport technologies
    • shared resources in logistics
    • 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 requested to contact one of the satellite events chairs.
    The conference submission tool "ConfTool" will open on Monday, 12th of August 2013. Papers submitted to the
    main conference must contain original research and should not exceed ten pages. Simultaneous submission to
    other conferences with proceedings or submission of material that has already been published elsewhere is not
    allowed. Papers submitted to the doctoral symposium should not exceed five pages.
