The International Workshop on

Harbour, Maritime & Multimodal Logistics Modelling and Simulation

61 La Canebiere, 13001 Marseille - France,  October 15 -1 7, 2001

HMS2001 Program

HMS2002 Call for Papers

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, while HMS2000 was held in Portofino; 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 in 1999 Genoa Italy, while 2000 edition was in Portofino.
In 2001 HMS will be held in Marseille.
