ICLS 2014 Special Sessions will be a very useful tool in order to complement the regular program with new or emerging topics of particular interest to the participating community. Special Sessions that emphasize on multi-disciplinary and transversal aspects, as well as cutting-edge topics are especially encouraged and welcome. We are kindly encourage the Authors to contribute to the following confirmed special sessions

Special Session: Sustainability in Remanufacturing Operations, Chair: Dr. Eng. Paulina Golinska, Dipl-ing. Frank Kuebler(Bayreuth University)(the deadline for this special session is 21st March 2014, by abstract/paper submission please add code SSReman)
  • Materials management for remanufacturing
  • Ecological, social and economic aspects in remanufacturing operations
  • Sustainability in remanufacturing operations
  • Resource effectiveness by remanufacturing
  • Information management by remanufacturing
  • Process optimization by remanufacturing
  • Core management and suppliers relationships
Special Session: Sustainable Supply Chain Management, Chair: Prof. Ali Diabat (by abstract/paper submission please add code SSSustain)
  • Climate change and sustainable development challenges in managing the supply chains
  • The design and management of supply chains with environmental, social, and economic considerations
  • Reverse logistics and closed loop supply chain optimization models
Special Session: Integration in forward and backward logistics supply chain, Chairs: Dr. Eng. Piotr Cyplik; Dr. Eng. Łukasz Hadaś (by abstract/paper submission please add code SSIntegra)
  • Internal and external barriers of the process of supply chain integration
  • Integrated production planning / S&OP model in supply chain
  • Performance measurement in the supply chain
  • The levels of supply chain integration/integration scenarios
Workshop: Simulation and Optimization of Sustainability in Logistics and Manufacturing Systems, Chairs: Dr.Eng. Paweł Pawlewski, Prof. Allen Greenwood(by abstract/paper submission please add code WSimul)
  • The workshop is a forum for sharing ideas, research results, application experiences, etc. associated with the use of simulation and optimization technologies to address sustainability issues in logistics and manufacturing systems. Both theoretical and applied works are welcome. The workshop hopes to address a variety of questions, such as: How can manufacturing and supply-chain operations be improved through sustainability considerations? How can simulation and optimization be used to better understand, assess, and address sustainability issues? What modeling approaches and paradigms are best suited to consider sustainability? What are the key research questions related to sustainability in manufacturing and logistics systems?
