Vehicle Routing and Logistics Optimization 2015

The fourth meeting of the EURO Working Group on Vehicle Routing and Logistics Optimization - VeRoLog

Vienna, Austria, June 8-10

The fourth meeting of the EURO Working Group on Vehicle Routing and Logistics Optimization will take place in Vienna from June 8-10, 2015.

The VeRoLog conference is an established annual meeting of the EURO Working Group on Vehicle Routing and Logistics Optimization - VeRoLog bringing together the large community of researchers and practitioners interested in vehicle routing optimization and its relations with logistics. The VeRoLog conference typically attracts between 150 and 200 researchers and practitioners from all over the world. The conference is open to high quality methodological contributions and relevant real-world applications and case studies from the industry and the services.

As an additional bonus to VeRoLog participants, the ELOCOT - Conference on Electromobility in Logistics and Commercial Transport will take place as a one day event on 10 June 2015. ELOCOT will be a forum for academics, practitioners, and policy makers discussing current research, trends, and successful use cases of electric mobility. A joint (VEROLOG - ELOCOT) panel discussion on the implications of CO2 reduction policies and the broader introduction of electric vehicles for vehicle routing and logistics will be organized. Participation in the ELOCOT conference will be free of charge for VeRoLog participants.

Abstract submission

To participate, an abstract of 1/3 page (max. 250 words) must be submitted electronically via the link "Abstract submission". Accepted abstracts with a registered presenter will be included in the book of abstracts. At most one presentation per registered participant is accepted.
