HMS 2021 as a Fully Online Event! (Blended Event Cancelled) The I3M 2021 Organization Committee has hardly worked along the last months to set-up I3M 2021 as blended event (both in presence and online). We have been obliged to wait until August to take a decision about the blended event to have the possibility to observe the pandemic trend as well as to receive hotels availability to host the event. Only few people (less than 20 out of 450 authors and around 150 papers) have selected the “in person” participation mode, while all the others attendees prefer the online participation. In addition, in many countries, a new COVID-19 wave is already started or it is going to start very soon and the aggressiveness of the Delta Variant is challenging many countries. Due to these considerations, the I3M 2021 Organization Committee has decided to cancel the event in person and to run I3M 2021 as a full online event. We will still keep trying and we hope that for I3M 2022, that will be held in Rome (Italy), we can see again each other in person. For additional information about the Program of I3M 2021 as a Blended Event, check the Program section of this website.
Papers Presentations only through the online mode Regarding the papers presentations, these will be done in Parallel Sessions only through the online mode and according to the following format: for each paper there will be a pre-recorded video of the paper presentation (maximum 10 minutes, please be sure to respect this limit when preparing your video) + 5 minutes during which the presenting author will answer to questions made by the audience. The videos of the paper presentations must be uploaded by authors no later than September 10th 2021. Please click here to upload your video.
Just A Few Words
About The Event
The HMS Conference concentrates on applications of simulation and computer technologies to logistics, supply chain management, multimodal transportation, maritime environment and industrial logistics. HMS Conference is a traditional event and it was held successfully worldwide, usually in the surroundings of major international ports (HMS 1999 in Genoa, HMS 2000 in Portofino, HMS 2001 in Marseille, HMS 2002 in Bergeggi, HMS 2003 in Riga, HMS 2004 in Rio de Janeiro, HMS 2006 in Barcelona, HMS 2007 in Bergeggi). However HMS foundations are even older, originally a “Harbour & Maritime Transport Workshop” was included as part of Simulation in Industry Conference, Genoa (1996) and, then, a “Modelling and Simulation within a Maritime Environment Conference” was organized in Riga during 1998. In 2008 the Conference moved to South Italy in HMS 2008, in co-location with I3M 2008, the event was a great success in term of quality and attendance. The HMS 2009 edition was very successful in the Canary Island: and the HMS2010 was held in Fes (Morocco). In 2011 the conference moved in Italy, while HMS 2012 has been held in Vienna and it is a joint event in I3M2012. In 2013 the conference moved to Greece as a joint event of I3M2013, co-locating HMS2013, EMSS2013, MAS2013, DHSS2013, IMAACA2013, I-WISH 2013 and SESDE 2013 . In 2014 the conference was held in Bordeux, France, as part of I3M2014. HMS2015 was held in Bergeggi, Italy, still as part of I3M2015. In the past editions worldwide specialist had the opportunity to participate and interact to this important International Forum on Logistics. The audience includes both users, vendors and scientists operating in applying advanced techniques to supply chains, logistics and handling facilities.
