Workshop on Collaborative Logistics

Primary tabs

There will be an NSF-sponsored Workshop on Collaborative Logistics 9 A.M. to 5 P.M. on September 21, 2007 in the Executive Classroom, H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology.

Traditionally companies have focused on improving their own internal business processes when faced with pressures to operate more efficiently. However, a system-wide focus, e.g., a collaborative focus, opens up cost saving opportunities that are impossible to achieve with an internal company focus. With the availability of timely and accurate information, new collaborative opportunities which create mutual benefit by taking advantage of operational synergies between buyers, sellers, or buyers and sellers are now arising. Collaborative logistics is viewed by many logistics professionals as a promising opportunity for reducing logistics costs and therefore increasing profitability and economic prosperity. Hence there is a need to develop a fundamental knowledge base for designing, analyzing, implementing, and managing such collaborative logistics initiatives.

The workshop will focus on efforts in that direction and will have a variety of talks on topics related to models and methods of collaboration, including supply chain coordination, auctions, computation and games, learning and games, and logistics collaboration in practice. Furthermore, an overview of collaborative logistics research at Georgia Tech will be presented. A 15-minute discussion after each talk, a lunch break, and two coffee breaks during the day will provide ample opportunities for
interaction among the participants. The speakers include:
* Michael Ball, University of Maryland
* Jun-Sheng Li, Transplace
* David Parkes, Harvard University
* Andreas Schulz, MIT
* Vijay Vazirani, Georgia Tech
* Rakesh Vohra, Northwestern University
