Experts in logistics met at the "3rd European Conference on ICT for Transport Logistics" in Bremen, Germany
The "European Conference on ICT for Transport Logistics" is a place where professionals from different European Research Projects in the area of logistics come together and exchange ideas. Initiated by the European Commission in 2008, this conference is a yearly event held at different locations. The "3rd European Conference on ICT for Transport Logistics" (ECITL'10) was hosted in Bremen (Germany) under the aegis of the Senator for Economy and Ports in Bremen, Mr. Martin Günthner.
One of the main topics of the ECITL'10 were intelligent IT-systems for "Green Logistics" concepts. Many presentations and discussions revolved around solutions for such IT-systems which should provide vital information of the cargo to the logistic provider dependably. The participants came from industry, governmental institutions, and research centers which shows the great interest in this conference and the importance of logistics as backbone for the economy.
Besides presentations of invited speakers, interactive workshops presenting different research projects were available to the participants. These opened the possibility of actively exchanging ideas and discussing different solution approaches.
The organization of the conference was supported by the Vorarlberg University of Applied Sciences, Dornbirn, Austria together with the ISL Institute of Shipping Economics and Logistics (local host) and six European Research projects: Logistics for LIFE, e-FREIGHT, EURIDICE, INTEGRITY, SMART-CM and SMARTFREIGHT. The projects were responsible for the organization of the interactive sessions.
The success of the conference led to the decision to have the "4th European Conference on ICT for Transport Logistics" (13th-14th, October, 2011) in Thessaloniki, Greece.
