Researchers have long recognized the practical importance of incorporating uncertainty into planning models for logistics and transportation systems. Now, with advances in computational tools and techniques for solving such models, more and more researchers are building and solving them. Similarly, the rise of “big data” provides opportunities to better understand and estimate the degree of uncertainty in many transportation problems.
The 2014 TSL Workshop will consist of talks focused on recognizing uncertainty in planning logistics and transportation systems. We believe this workshop will establish the landscape for the state-of-the-art in this research area and guide researchers in their future efforts.
