INFORMS TSL Workshop 2019

July 15, 2019 - July 18, 2019

INFORMS TSL Workshop 2019 in Vienna

The next INFORMS TSL Workshop will be held from July 15-18, 2019 at the University of Vienna. The topic of the workshop is “Transportation in the sharing economy”. Sharing economy refers
to collaborative consumption. It is typically organized through platforms that facilitate the exchange of goods or services. Given an increasing pressure to act economically and ecologically
efficient, mechanisms that help to benefit from idle capacities are on the rise. Both transportation companies and heavy users of transportation services need to learn how to play in
a world of shared idle capacities. We anticipate talks on various types of collaborations, crowd delivery, carsharing, carpooling, ridesharing, etc.

We will welcome contributions that address modeling, methodological or game theoretical
aspects.  Possible topics are (but not limited to):

* Collaborative and cooperative transportation
* Crowd shipping or sourcing
* Car-, bike-, or ride sharing
* Car and bike repositioning
* Car pooling
* Intermodal and multimodal transportation
* Synchromodality and the physical internet
* Business model developments in the sharing economy
* Shared mobility services
