We are pleased to invite you to submit an abstract to LOGMS 2017. Submissions will be received electronically via Easychair. To submit your abstract, please log in to EasyChair using the following link: Abstracts should contain no more than 500 words.

Acceptance or rejection will be based on the extended abstracts. No full paper will be asked for, as we want to see presentations at the conference based on new and ongoing work. However, we do invite paper submissions to the special issue "Analytics and models for maritime logistics and systems" of the Flexible Services and Manufacturing Journal (Springer), edited by Kjetil Fagerholt, Julio C. Góez, Kap-Hwan Kim, Frank Meisel, Qiang Meng, and Magnus Stålhane. Submission deadline is December 31, 2017.
