Symposium  /  13. Juni 2018  -  14. Juni 2018

9th International Scientific Symposium on Logistics

Das ehemalige Wissenschaftssymposium hat sich zu dem zentralen Treffpunkt der wissenschaftlich orientierten Logistics Community entwickelt. Führende Institute und Unternehmen zeigen ihre Lösungsansätze aus verschiedenen Perspektiven auf und laden zu anregenden Diskussionen ein.

Die Veranstaltungssprache ist Englisch.

Efficient logistics operations make a key contribution to the success of modern companies. The solution of complex problems in a dynamic environment increasingly requires support from the world of science and research. Two of the characteristic features of successful logistics research are close cooperation with real-world logisticians on the one hand and the interdisciplinary thrust of key projects on the other. It is at this interface that logistics related scientific topics have established an own field in recent years.

BVL International promotes these developments on various levels with the support of a Scientific Advisory Board that advises the Executive Board in all questions relating to science and research. Since it was first held in Magdeburg in 2002, BVL’s International Scientific Symposium on Logistics (ISSL) has become established as a central forum for the scientifically oriented logistics community.

The aim is to promote the exchange of ideas across specialist and geographic borders in order to encourage the development of new models to provide solutions to real-world issues that are of relevance to researchers and scientists. Magdeburg will be the venue for the next conference from June 13-14, 2018.
