CFP: ICT in Automotive, Transport & Logistics (Netherlands)
by Paul Matthews

RAI Exhibition & Congress Centre, Amsterdam, Netherlands

18-19 April 2011


First Announcement and Call for Papers

The Dutch Computer Society (Nederlands Genootschap voor Informatica, NGI) and the International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP), in cooperation with a large number of partners, are organizing a unique conference on ICT in the automotive industry, transport and logistics. The unique element of this event is the combination of a scientific conference with strictly peer reviewed high quality research work, a business-style event with application oriented and case presentations and a policy oriented meeting that raises important issues to be taken care of by the research community, by the industry and by politicians.

The conference will take place during the AutoRAI which is a consumer exhibition for the automotive industry. Being at the same venue at the same time offers a great opportunity to discuss the latest developments since the automotive industry will be widely present.
