Planning Sustainable Transport Systems
Track at the International Conference on Harbour, Maritime & Multimodal Logistics Modelling and Simulation
Track Chairs: (a)Christian Hillbrand ,(b)Robert Schoech
Affiliation: (a) (b) V-Research GmbH Industrial Research and Development
While globalization of the economy has received a continuous increase in volume of freight traffic during the past years, theoretical and methodological approaches and ideas for sustainable transport logistics are poorly developed. In this context, the regulatory push effect for sustainable transport logistics forces the economy to find new ways and perspectives for saving resources and environment. On the other hand, the industry pull effect can profit from their changes of transport systems to be more competitive and efficiency on the global market. The aim of this track is for researchers and practitioners to exchange new ideas and practical experience in planning sustainable transport logistics. Against this background, this track includes following topics:
· Modeling and simulation of transport systems
· Comparison and optimization of transport systems
· Methods and tools for computation of emission in transport logistics
· Methods and tools for planning of multimodal transport systems
· Management application of multimodal transport systems: case studies
· Approaches of emission reporting in transport logistics
· Approaches of multi agent systems in transport logistics
Submissions of Extended Abstracts May 15, 2012
Notification of acceptance: June 15, 2012
Final Camera-Ready Submission July 15, 2012

Authors' Guidelines (further information author’s instruction section)
Extended abstracts (minimum 2 pages), full draft papers or other proposals should be submitted for the review process through the submission section by May 15, 2012.
The extended abstract or the full draft paper must contain title, authors, affiliations, addresses, main body and references.
Each extended abstract or full draft paper will be reviewed by at least two members of the International Program Committee taking into consideration scientific quality, originality and relevance. Only original papers, written in English will be accepted.
The extended abstract or the full draft paper should be prepared by following the final paper formatting. However any type of paper formatting can be accepted for the first submission.
NOTIFICATION OF ACCEPTANCE
Notification of acceptance will be sent by June 15, 2012.
CAMERA READY PAPER SUBMISSION
The International Program Committee will accept two types of camera ready papers: extended paper (10 pages, 2 columns); regular paper (6 pages, 2 columns) both for regular and special sessions.
The camera ready paper must adhere to the conference template. The .dot file contains the complete instructions for preparing a camera ready copy for the Proceedings. The final version of the paper must be a PDF file.
Your camera ready paper (extended paper or regular paper) in PDF format must be submitted by using the submission section before the July 15, 2012
The page limit for manuscripts is ten (10) pages (included in the author registration fee). Additional pages will require an additional fee.
If your work must be cleared or approved before publication by your institution, company, or governmental agency, please be sure that process will be completed by the due date above or we will not be able to include it in the CD Conference Proceedings.
