The International Workshop on

Harbour, Maritime & Multimodal Logistics Modelling and Simulation

MISS Spain- Barcelona - Spain
4-6 October, 2006

Hospital de la Santa Creu i de Sant Pau (World Heritage), Barcelona, Spain


HMS2007 Call for Paper - I3M2007 Call for Paper


HMS Conference 

The HMS Workshop concentrates on applications of simulation and computer technologies to logistics, supply chain management, multimodal transportation, maritime environment and industrial logistics.
HMS Workshop is a traditional event and it was held succesfully worldwide, usually in the sourrondings of major international ports (HMS1999 Genoa, HMS2000 Portofino, HMS2001 Marseille, HMS2002 Bergeggi, HMS2003 Riga, HMS2004 Rio de Janeiro); however HMS foundations are even older, originally a "Harbour & Maritime Transport Workshop" was included as part of Simulation in Industry Conference, Genoa (1996) and then a "Modelling and Simulation within a Maritime Environment Workshop" was organized in Riga during 1998; in 2006 the conference moves to Barcelona, after 2005 in Marseille where it was held in co-location with I3M2005 (local mirror) and ESS2005 (local mirror).
In the past editions worldwide specialist had the opportunity to participate and interact to this important International Forum on Logistics.
The audience included both users, vendors and scientists operating in applying advanced techniques to supply chains, logistics and handling facilities.
