33rd International Supply Chain Conference - Driving Change

19th – 21st of October, 2016, Berlin
A basic and underlying thought of the International Supply Chain Conference is to spread logistic knowledge between experts with corresponding publicity work and for a wider range of people as well. From the start, the congress has been intended to be a decisive platform for contacts and businesses. No other event in Germany makes the 'logistics market' more concrete than the International Supply Chain Conference. Since 1985 it is held in conjunction with a special exhibition. During all the years, the number of booths increased tenfold from 20 to recently 200. Additionally, there is a wide range of meetings and company meetings. Today, the International Supply Chain Conference is the most important annual logistics event in Europe. It has turned out to be a central meeting point of German economy. But also more foreign guests take part every year to profit from knowledge exchange and concentrated communication possibilities.
The LogDynamics Research Cluster and the BIBA will be represented at a booth at the 33rd International Supply Chain Conference again this year. We cordially invite all congress participants, who are interested in innovative solutions for logistics, to visit our booth. The focus of this year's presence will be set on technologies for the realization of Industry 4.0.

Calls for Papers LDIC 2016 and IFAC MCPL 2016

The calls for papers for the 5th International Conference on Dynamics in Logistics (LDIC 2016) as well as for the 7th IFAC Conference on Management and Control of Production and Logistics (MCPL 2016) have been published.
