Special Sessions

Special sessions are very small and specialized events to be held during the conference as a set of oral and poster presentations that are highly specialized in some particular theme or consisting of the works of some particular international project. The goal of special sessions (minimum 4 papers; maximum 9) is to provide a focused discussion on innovative topics. All accepted papers will be published in a special section of the conference proceedings book, under an ISBN reference, and on digital support. All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the SCITEPRESS Digital Library. SCITEPRESS is a member of CrossRef and every paper is given a DOI (Digital Object Identifier). The proceedings are submitted for indexation by Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (ISI), DBLP, EI (Elsevier Engineering Village Index) and Scopus.

Scope

The transition to the fourth industrial revolution, the concepts of digitalization and the IoT cannot be implemented without sustainable logistics. The application of new technologies and digitalization of processes will allow us to move to the concept of Logistics 4.0. Development of technology in the era of Sustainable Development Goals implementation and rational resources consumption led to the formulation and new concept of economic development – the circular economy. This concept changes the paradigm of logistics processes organization, where reverse logistics, along with direct supply chains, becomes one of the elements of logistics chains. To ensure the efficiency of transport and related technological operations during the goods movement, new technologies are used at all stages of transportation.

1.       Logistics 4.0

2.       Sustainability in logistics and supply chains

3.       Green logistics and supply chain management

4.       Transportation and warehouse management

5.       Best practices in logistics and supply chains

6.       Risk management

7.       IoT in Transportation and Logistics

8.       Spare parts logistics

9.       RFID systems in Logistics

10.     Reverse logistics

11.     Virtual production

Scope

Autonomous driving technology is around the corner. The admission of the Autonomous Vehicle (AV) mobility in our lives poses a societal challenge in a changing world, where inclusive, innovative and reflective societies foster a closer interconnectedness between human and technology. This emerging innovative context shapes new types of relations and social perceptions. Technological innovations have a significant impact on developing and transforming socioeconomic aspects and creating new patterns of behaviour and cognitive perception of the urban landscape. Automation, digitization and robotics have disruptive effects on human culture, influencing sustainability and productivity. Accordingly, the fostering of new relations with the urban landscape or with the environment, the moulding of new types of governance set tensions on safety issues and on sharing personal information and finally raise liability questions concerning control and ownership. More research is needed to assess the effects of these transformations and to propose policies that would include the diffusion of this new technology in society. The main issues to be raised in this special session would be socio-economic and cultural transformations stemming from the emerging technological innovation on governance for the future. Issues of trust and change of spatial and temporal cognition should be included.


Topics: 
1. Socio-economic transformations on future mobility 
2. Autonomous mobility and social inclusivity. 
3. Sustainability in transportation infrastructure. 
4. The role of trust in the diffusion of AVs. 
5. Governance, AI and human rights on the AV technology. 
6. Safety and liability issues of AVs 
7. Intelligent Transportation System and privacy 
8. Policies implementation for the diffusion of the new technology 
9. Cognition and the agency of AI in AVs. 
10. Policy implementation for the diffusion of the new technology 11.-The effects of AVs in the sharing economy.
