at IJCAI 2011

Barcelona, Spain, July 16, 2011

May 20, 2011 Camera-ready papers due
July 16, 2011 Workshop at IJCAI 2011



Logistics is concerned with the organization and control of processes in
space and time in order to transport or manufacture goods and the
coordination of the resulting flows of material and information, as well as
monetary flows. In a globalized economy, these processes become increasingly
hard to handle: the resulting logistic networks get complex and show great
dynamics, which results in partial observability and more and more prevents
centralized process planning. Thus, recent trends in logistics point towards
solutions with distributed and self-organizing processes, and methods from
AI are increasingly used to tackle the emerging spatio-temporal problems.

Also, the use of techniques from AI and cognitive science enables to move
from a de-centralized view of cooperating autonomous units to an
"emancipated" society of logistic units interacting among themselves and
with human agents. Particularly the interaction with humans in logistic
processes (with users, system designers, analysts, or other stakeholders) is
becoming a crucial in increasingly complex processes.

AILog-2011 is supposed to provide a forum for interdisciplinary research
between logistics and AI. Often, researchers in logistics apply interesting
AI techniques to solve existing problems, but do not have close contact to
the progress of research in this field. Similarly, AI researchers are often
not aware of the possibilities to connect their work to state-of-the art
logistics. AILog-2011 is an opportunity to bring together researchers from
different disciplines to share and discuss ideas and focus on open problems.



This workshop addresses researchers in AI that apply their methods to
logistics problems or see the potential to do so as well as researchers from
logistics that use or develop AI methods in their work.

We encourage contributions addressing the following research and application

Possible Research Areas:

Knowledge representation and reasoning
Multi modal interaction
Cognitive robotics
Cognitive modeling
Spatial and temporal reasoning
Neural or fuzzy systems
Logic and constraint programming
Ambient intelligence
Planning and scheduling
Multi agent systems
Data mining
Case-based reasoning
Machine learning
Human-machine interfaces

Possible Application Areas:

Transport logistics
Production planning and control
Assembly and disassembly
Process modeling and monitoring
Process planning
Intelligent manufacturing systems
Production Scheduling
Inventory organization and optimization
Automated inspection and quality control
Supply chain management
Traffic control and management


Submitted papers must be in PDF format and follow the IJCAI style
guidelines. Technical papers must not exceed a length of 6 pages.

For submitting your paper, please use the Easychair online submission system
at . The paper
submission deadline is April 11.

Submitted papers will be reviewed by at least two reviewers. There will be
no double-blind review, so anonymization of submissions is not necessary.
Papers selected for presentation at the workshop will appear in the workshop
