The committee of the 5th International Conference on Computational Logistics is inviting high quality papers in the field of logistics management and operations and information systems as well as related issues. Against the background of increasing demands from society for better quality of life and growing environmental problems on the one hand and existing cost and capacity requirements on the other hand a discussion of promising solution concepts and best practice applications seems to be necessary more than ever. Of particular interest are contributions based on heuristic and formal approaches as well as on innovative IT tools for decision support
in case of inhomogeneous objective systems.

We consider all varieties of logistics activities, taking into account any mode of transportation or manner of cargo storage, respectively. Special emphasis will be put on studies about real-world cases providing practical experiences and insights of the odds and challenges to balance both (individual) economic interests and the requirements of public welfare. A non-exhaustive list of topical areas for this conference is as follows:

Planning tools and tool-based environments for design of logistics supra- and infrastructure
State-of-the-art in computational analysis and evaluation of environmental impact induced by logistic operations (e.g., air, noise or light pollution)
Sustainable design and operations of logistics facilities
Decision support in logistics
Integrated planning and control of logistic nodes and their processes
Theoretical and empirical analysis of logistics operations
Modeling, simulation and evaluation of the involve organizations
Heuristics and meta-heuristics implementation in logistics related models
ERP and any other information systems related applicatins in logistics
Strategies and operations of logistics service providers
Service integration of agents or carriers within the logistics business
Consolidation and distribution for agents or shippers within the logistics business
Cooperation in maritime supply chains / integration of ports in intermodal hinterland systems
Advantages and challenges of participative planning / support of multimedia and planning tools
Fleet management: comparison of land-based and maritime systems / integration of sustainability aspects
