The 2nd Kyoto University-Universität Hamburg Symposium 2018

Digital Transformation in Logistics

This session addresses real-world topics arising in transportation, logistics, and supply-chain networks. Systems engineering approaches such as modelling, simulation, and optimization techniques are crucial for managing complex and multi-modal networks. In addition to these bottom-up approaches, top-down perspectives are required to provide a novel framework considering social and economic issues. In this session, we aim at reducing the gap between and synthesizing the two directions through discussions by experts in each field of research.
