11th international Meeting on Logistics Research
EPFL - Lausanne
From 7 to 9 September 2016, the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) will have the honour and the pleasure of hosting the 2016 RIRL (International Meeting on Logistics Research) conference. EPFL is one of two institutes of technology in Switzerland. The institute hosts some 15,000 people - nearly 10,000 students and 5,000 professors, skilled professionals and scientific, technical and administrative associates. Located in a particularly picturesque corner of Lausanne, near the lake and the mountains, this school boasts 5 schools and two colleges. The Meeting will be organised by the College of Management of Technology (CDM) and by the International Institute for the Management of Logistics (IML), co-founded in 1990 by the EPFL and the Ecole des Ponts ParisTech with the support of international businesses. In 2016, the RIRL session will combine scientific presentations of an academic nature with input from professionals. What is truly unique about RIRL 2016 is that it will bring together current industrial problems and works of theoretical research. This approach should also allow for collaborations that are as necessary to the academic world as they are to the industrial world.
