Building Alliances, Advancing Solutions
Call for Papers
On May 13-14, 2014, MITL & SCL are hosting our 5th TRANSLOG Conference at the
McMaster University, DeGroote School of Business, Ron Joyce Centre in Burlington, ON.
TRANSLOG is a leading forum for the exchange of ideas relating to the latest theoretical and
applied research in freight and goods movement. Because the efficiency and sustainability
of freight movements is very much intertwined with other transportation elements,
TRANSLOG will also explore non-freight themes.
This unique two day event will bring together transportation and logistics leaders from
academia, government and the private sector and will feature keynote presentations,
interactive discussions, and targeted breakout sessions that will ensure a lively
environment to exchange views.
- Transportation as an Economic Enabler
- New Mobility & Data Collection Technologies
- Freight Issues by Mode
- Dangerous Goods
- Critical Infrastructure
- Cross-Border Issues
