What is VeRoLog

VeRoLog is the Working Group on Vehicle Routing and Logistics Optimization within EURO, the Association of the European Operational Research Societies.

Vehicle Routing optimization is at the core of Logistics and Supply Chain Management as well as people Transportation activities, and is a very active research area in Operations Research that sees an intense contribution from a large number of researchers working in European Universities, Research Centres and Companies.

The purpose of VeRoLog is to constitute an aggregation and reference point for the rich and active research community in order to:

  • favour the development and application of Operations Research models, methods and tools to the field of Vehicle Routing and Logistics.

  • encourage the exchange of information among practitioners, end-users, and researchers in the area of Vehicle Routing and Logistics, stimulating the work on new and important problems with sound scientific methods.

  • actively promote the interest on Vehicle Routing and Logistics in the scientific community by organizing dedicated workshops and conferences as well as contributing to all major ones with sessions and streams, offering specialized schools and seminars, editing special and contributed issues  in the most important scientific journals.

  • facilitate the networking activities that are crucial for the proposition of successful international research and industrial projects.

  • enhance professional opportunities for its members both in the academia and industry.

PhD position: Formal methods in control (Munich, Germany)

We invite applications for a doctoral researcher position in the field of formal methods in control. The successful candidate is expected to advance theory of as well as computational methods for
abstraction-based controller synthesis, to a degree that facilitates routine, fully automated, practical application of the approach to nonlinear continuous-state plants and complex specifications. The
focus is on synthesis algorithms that are both efficient and formally correct.

Abstract submission is open for VeRoLog 2017 (Amsterdam, July 10-12)

The VeRoLog 2017 website (https://verolog2017.sciencesconf.org/) is ready to accept the submission of the abstracts. The maximum length of the abstracts is 250 words, the submission deadline is February 28, 2017. The acceptance notification is scheduled for March 31, 2017. An updated call for abstracts can be found on the website. For any information about the conference, the email address is verolog2017@gmail.com

Special Session at the CEC2017 - Call for Papers

Dear All,

Xin-She Yang, Yuxin Zhao and me invite all of you to submit a paper to the following special session in the CEC2017: Nature-Inspired Computation in Navigation and Vehicle Routing (NICNaVR 2017)

VeRoLog Solver Challenge 2016-2017

Dear reader,

 

we would like to inform you on the VeRoLog Solver Challenge 2016-2017. As of now, you can not only defend your honor but also fill your pockets: we are pleased to announce that the all-time-best instances are available from the website (https://verolog.ortec.com). This means that you can submit solutions to any of these instances, and over time we will award small prizes for the best submissions (per instance). This prize consists of a part for the time your solution was the best one, and a part for the final best solution.

Call for mini-symposia: CM3 2017 - Computation and Big Data in Transport

On May 22-24, 2017, the DG Research & Innovation of the European Commission in Brussels will host the second CM3 conference.

The theme of the conference is “Computation and Big Data in Transport – Research solving Societal and Industry Challenges in Automotive, Aeronautics, Logistics, Maritime and Railways”.

New Journal: Journal on Vehicle Routing Algorithms

Words from the editor in chief, Marc Sevaux:

Dear VeRoLog members,

Christian Prins and myself are pleased to announce the creation of a new Springer journal: Journal on Vehicle Routing Algorithms (JVRA)

-       first journal 100% dedicated to routing problems at large

-       followed from the very beginning by Journal Citation Reports (Thomson Reuters)

-       covers routing problems in road, rail, maritime or air transportation

-       application in transportation, services, robotics, manufacturing

-       open to new technologies (smart vehicles, electric vehicles etc.)

Journal web site: http://www.springer.com/41604/
