Dynamics of logistic processes and networks are at the heart of the conference. We invite empirical, theoretical, methodological, and practice-oriented contributions addressing the modeling, planning, optimization and control of processes in supply chains, logistic networks, production systems, and material flow systems and facilities.

LDIC 2024 provides a forum for the discussion of advances in that matter. The conference addresses scientists in logistics, operations research, 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 the following within production, logistics, and supply chain management:

  • Dynamics and complexity
  • Modeling and optimization methods
  • Uncertainty, risk, resilience, and performance
