Further details about the calls for extended abstracts for regular and student competition applications, registration, fees, committees and useful information to authors and speakers are available on the official Conference website (http://scale.mit.edu/ events/2018-mit-scale-latin-america-conference).

We are delighted to announce that Prof. Yossi Sheffi, Director for the MIT Center for Transportation & Logistics and Dr. Edgar Blanco, Director of Network Planning & Design for Amazon Logistics will be the keynote speakers of the conference.

In addition, the conference will be a unique occasion to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Center for Latin-American Logistics Innovation (CLI) and a great opportunity to join the Latin American research and practitioner communities together. Therefore, we are very much looking forward to seeing you all at MIT in April 2018!
