Conference best papers will be directed to International Journals for inclusion through content extension. I3M 2024 will generate Special Issues of top-quality International Journals for best authors. Find out more on the website!


The submission and review of papers for HMS 2024 will be managed through EasyChair.

Guidelines for the preparation of manuscripts and instructions for submission are provided on the conference website:

All manuscripts must be submitted electronically through the Conference Manuscript Management System.

All papers will be accepted with the understanding that they will be presented at the conference. At least one author of each accepted paper will be required to register before uploading the final version.

Access for free the I3M proceedings of previous editions

Conferences Proceedings are available at this link


"Gianni Cantice Research Award for Gifted Simulation Students" and the “Norbert Giambiasi Award for Conceptual Modeling Excellence” will be announced during the I3M 2024 Gala Dinner and attributed to the best simulation student applicants. The Gianni Cantice Award is entitled to Col.Cantice as recognition for his long activity in Simulation; the Gianni Cantice Award Winner will receive the Award Certificate and a financial contribution (a free registration for the next I3M conference).
The Norbert Giambiasi Award is entitled to Prof. Norbert Giambiasi as recognition for very highly qualified contribution in Conceptual Modeling and DEVS within the International Simulation Community. The Norbert Giambiasi Award Certificate Board selects the paper among best Conceptual Modeling contributions to the I3M Conference. If you have a student as co-author in your HMS paper the student could be considered for the award.

Conference Aim

The HMS Conference concentrates on applications of simulation and computer technologies to logistics, supply chain management, multimodal transportation, maritime environment and industrial logistics. This event is the ideal framework for setting up European Community and International Projects and it could be used as a framework for hosting project review meetings and project exploitation. The audience includes both users, vendors and scientists operating in applying advanced techniques to industry, business, and services.
