Call for Papers

Submission deadline: June 30, 2019*

Authors are kindly invited to submit their contributions in the area of logistics management, operations, control, and information systems, relevant to all types of logistics activities and on any mode of transportation, with a particular focus on practical cases providing insight and real-world experience.

Submissions are invited in one of the two following forms:

(a) Full papers for publication in Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS)
(b) Abstracts for presentation only

All papers should be submitted electronically following the instructions on this page and by following this link.


Full paper submissions

Full papers should have a length of at most 15 pages following the LNCS style files. For a paper to be included in this volume, it should be presented at the conference by one of the authors. The style files for LNCS submissions can be found here. This site contains all relevant style files for CS Proceedings and Multiauthor Volumes as well as the Springer copyright form. If you have any questions concerning the style files, please consult the corresponding technical instructions on the website. Additionally, we kindly ask you to have a look at the "Checklist of items to be sent to the volume editor". The authors are required to use the submission form available here to:

  • Upload the pdf file of the 15-page regular paper in LNCS style on the easychair platform.
  • Paste in the Abstract textbox a 1-page abstract (maximum 3000 characters, including spaces) to be included in the abstracts booklet which will be distributed during the conference. At most 4 references can be included. Mathematical formulas can be included in LaTeX notation.

Authors should consult Springer’s authors’ guidelines and use their proceedings templates, either for LaTeX or for Word, for the preparation of their papers in the following link. Springer encourages authors to include their ORCIDs in their papers. In addition, the corresponding author of each paper, acting on behalf of all of the authors of that paper, must complete and sign a Consent-to-Publish form (see downloads section). The corresponding author signing the copyright form should match the corresponding author marked on the paper. Once the files have been sent to Springer, changes relating to the authorship of the papers cannot be made.


Abstracts, presentation only

Submitted abstracts should not exceed one page (maximum 3000 characters, including spaces). At most 4 references can be included. Mathematical formulas can be included in LaTeX notation. Accepted Abstracts should be presented at the conference by one of the authors. To submit an abstract, please go here and paste the text in the abstract textbox of the submission form. Do not upload a pdf file of the abstract. Accepted abstracts will appear in the abstracts booklet which will be distributed during the conference.
