8th HNS 2010 - 8th International Heinz Nixdorf Symposium "Advanced Manufacturing and Sustainable Logistics"



VenuePaderborn, Germany Germany



Topics/Call fo Papers


We are pleased to announce the Call for Papers for the 8th International Heinz Nixdorf Symposium "Advanced Manufacturing and Sustainable Logistics". Current research and innovative approaches from industry regarding issues of production logistics will be in the focus of the two-day symposium. Furthermore, we plan to examine selected special topics from production logistics more closely. Feel free to forward this information to your colleagues.


The Heinz Nixdorf Symposium is an established biannual event of the Heinz Nixdorf Institute during which researchers and practitioners come together to present challenges from industry, discuss contributions from research institutions and develop novel solution approaches.

The 8th International Heinz Nixdorf Symposium will take place on April 21â?“22 in Paderborn, Germany. On April 21, distinguished professors and senior executives from large manufacturing and logistics companies will deliver invited speeches. On April 22, contributions are invited from both researchers and practitioners in the fields of manufacturing, logistics and supply chain management. Papers can be submitted to any of the six conference tracks.


Topics can include but are not limited to:

Track 1: Production Logistics I (Chair: Prof. Dr.-Ing. Egon MÃ?ller):
