2nd International Workshop on Process-Aware Logistics Systems
Tallinn, Estonia, September 3rd, 2012
In conjunction with BPM'2012

After the success of the first edition of the International Workshop on Process-Aware Logistics Systems held in conjunction with BPM'2011, our aim in this second edition is to strengthen the academic and industrial community working in this area and endorsing original and innovative research results. Basically, this workshop deals with problems related to the design and optimization of global logistics systems, from a business process management perspective.
It is dedicated to exploring and mastering the tools needed for operating, reconfiguring and, in general, making decisions within logistics-based systems, in order to provide the customers and system users with the greatest possible value.
The workshop should provide the participants with a good up-to-date perspective on the tools that are now available for modeling, and solving logistics-oriented problems, on a large-scale, and with an emphasis on the business process and information technology perspectives.
It should be noted that our aim, in the long term, is for this workshop to serve as a bridge between the business process research community and the logistics research community. Our vision is that the business process models, which are used on a daily basis for making the decisions needed for operating and reconfiguring the logistics systems, can naturally serve as the starting point for the problem formulations needed to optimize these logistics systems.
In the short term, however, we shall accept papers from the logistics community that expose and solve operations and reconfigurations types of problems, not necessarily based on business models. This can serve to familiarize the business process community with logistics systems.
