The focus of BDMobiLog 2014 will be on the potential of Big Data in mobility and logistics domain.
Mobility and logistics are closely linked to each other. On one hand, traffic flows and traffic density have a strong influence on the efficiency of logistic processes (especially when it comes to transportation). On the
other hand, the trend to e-mobility poses new challenges to the planning processes, e.g. the consideration of battery capacity during planning. Together with other factors, this leads to a rising complexity of logistic
processes and logistic networks, as well as a usually big amount of data to be handled. That is why there is already a growing amount of IT-based applications, which support and automate different steps of the logistic
processes. Using the right analytic approaches Big Data can elevate these applications to a new level, improve the planning processes, and enable precise and well-founded decisions.
The objective of the workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners who use Big Data or apply Big Data technologies in mobility and logistics and shall support technology transfer from foundational research into practice.
The workshop covers diverse application areas of Big Data in mobility and logistics including, but not limited to:
* Transport logistics
* Production planning and control
* Production scheduling
* Process planning and monitoring
* Maintenance logistics
* Service parts demand analytics
* Quality control and test planning
* Supply Chain Management
* Smart Factory
* Integration and visualization of sensor and mobility data
* Data-driven supply chain and traffic optimization
* Risk and congestion management
* Disruption management
* Mobility service analytics
* Traffic flow analytics
* Traffic flow modelling
* Prescriptive analytics in mobility and logistics
In addition to general usage of Big Data in mobility and logistics a special focus will be given to using Big Data for real-time process management and optimization. We explicitly encourage contributions tackling this challenge.
We invite researchers and practitioners from diverse mobility and logistic areas in research and industry to submit original research, work in progress and industrial papers.
Full papers must not exceed 12 pages. Short papers, work in progress and industrial papers must not exceed 8 pages.
Submissions must be in PDF format and follow the LNI style guidelines (http://www.gi.de/service/publikationen/autorenrichtlinien.html).
Contributions shall be submitted via Easychair online submission system at https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=bdmobilog2014
Submissions will be reviewed by at least two program committee members. Accepted papers will appear in the (electronic) Lecture Notes in Informatics (LNI, http://www.gi.de/service/publikationen/lni/).
