EURO Mini Conference on "Advances in Freight Transportation and Logistics"

*Padova, Italy, 7-9 March, 2018*

http://www.emc-ftl-2018.org/

This EURO Mini Conference call for papers is focused on methods and models
in the fields of OR and Transportation Engineering and aimed at solving
complex problems related to the topics. The conference will try to answer
to the following key questions:

* "What are the future of freight transportation and logistic?"
* "How to be a modern/smart city in order to get a sustainable freight
mobility?"
* "What are the best solutions academia can give for supporting companies,
shipping agents, logistic operators and public administrations in managing
freight distribution?"

The event will be hosted within the "Green Logistics Expo" that is an
international event organized by Padova Fiere. It will be the occasion in
which academia and stakeholders will try to answer to the key questions
above. Padova Fiere will host the event giving us space for plenary,
regular sessions and for workshops. The event is organised within the
activities of the  Euro Working Group of Transportation (EWGT) with the
support of the  Association of European Operational Research Societies
(EURO).

Main topics of interest are methods, mathematical models and computation
algorithms to solve and support the solution of problems in the field of
freight transportation and logistics.
