Land Translog IV Workshop

Date: December 8-12, 2019

The Complex Engineering Systems Institute (ISCI) invites you to submit an abstract for LAND-TRANSLOG IV, a unique workshop that has been held in Chile with great success since 2011, merging the previously separate workshops LAND and TRANSLOG. The workshop will take place from December 8 to December 12, 2019 at a new great location; the Dreams Valdivia hotel in the south of Chile.

We anticipate a variety of contributions. Please send your abstract by the deadline of September 1, 2019, after which an answer regarding acceptance will be sent on September 15, 2019.

The goal of the first LAND workshop, held in March 2009, was to bring together researchers from the fields of Location and Network Design. Although some researchers have made contributions in both fields, progress has been mainly in parallel, as demonstrated by the main meetings in both areas, TRISTAN and ISOLDE, which, as in the case of the mythical lovers, are never together at the same place and time. Similarly, the TRANSLOG Workshop on Transportation and Logistics, organized in December 2009, included topics that were also touched upon in the LAND Workshop and attracted people that would also feel suited to attend the LAND Workshop.

Given that both events were highly successful, we took a further step in promoting interaction and exchange of ideas among people coming from the two fields. This will be a good opportunity to explore areas of common interest and to learn how people from other fields address the same or similar problems.
