      Brief Description:

      SELP, the Special Session on Scalable Evolutionary Logistic Planning
      of the 2013 IEEE Symposium on Computational Intelligence in Production
      and Logistics Systems (CIPLS 2013), part of the 2013 IEEE Symposium
      Series on Computational Intelligence (IEEE SSCI 2013), invites the
      submission of original and unpublished research papers.

      Logistics comprises all management, scheduling, and routing governing
      the transportation of objects or resources from one point to another.
      In a modern economy, it is one of the most important services for
      business, the industry, and the public alike. Vehicles such as trucks,
      trains, ships, airplanes, and even bikes together transport billions
      of tons of parcel. Improving the efficiency of logistics is therefore
      a major concern, both from economical as well as environmental
      aspects. Many of the optimization problems arising in this area are
      NP-hard and therefore often intractable for exact solution approaches.
      Here, Computational Intelligence techniques have proven to be powerful
      alternatives. Today, especially large-scale logistic planning
      problems, involving many vehicles or logistic tasks, move into the
      focus of research. The high runtime requirement for solving them
      demands for new approaches to improve the scalability of evolutionary
      optimization methods.

      This special session will provide a common forum to exchange ideas and
      findings for researchers and practitioners who are interested in
      solving large-scale logistic planning problems with Evolutionary
      Algorithms, Swarm Intelligence methods, and CI approaches in general.
      All accepted papers in this session will be included in the
      Proceedings of the IEEE CIPLS 2013 published by IEEE Press and indexed
      by EI. Extended versions of selected papers will be further considered
      for publication in reputable journals.

      2013 IEEE Symposium on
      Computational Intelligence in Production and Logistics Systems
      CIPLS 2013

      The management of production and logistics systems in today's fierce
      competition environment is a difficult task and has become
      progressively complex. Major changes in products, processes,
      technologies, and societies bring along remarkable challenges and
      increasing market demands. Modelling and optimisation of the complex
      problems arising in production and logistics systems is of paramount
      importance in surviving and achieving competitive gains in
      productivity and quality.

      In recent years, the advancements in computer technology have allowed
      researchers to tackle large-scale problems and to develop and
      integrate efficient optimisation techniques for solving them. Within
      this context, CIPLS aims at addressing issues related to the design,
      planning, control, and continuous improvement of production and
      logistics systems using computational intelligence, including local
      search methods, Evolutionary Algorithms and other nature-inspired
      optimisation techniques. The intention is to cover various aspects of
      production from aggregate planning to shop-floor execution systems
      and modelling, planning and control of logistics systems. Studies
      incorporating real-world applications are highly encouraged.
