HMS Conference 

The  Workshop concentrates on applications of simulation and computer technologies to logistics,  multimodal transportation, maritime environment and industrial logistics.
HMS1999 has been held succesfully in Genoa; about 100 worldwide specialist had the opportunity to participate 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. This workshop was already included in Simulation in Industry Conference, Genoa (1996), in 1998 was organized in Rigaand last year in Genoa Italy.
In 2000 HMS will be held in Portofino, the most beatyful gulf in the world in the middle of the wonderful Italian Riviera, just 20 minutes drive from Major Hub Terminal.
