The International Conference on Industrial Logistics (ICIL) 2008 will take place on March 9-15, 2008 in Tel Aviv, Israel. The conference theme is "Logistics in a Flat World: Strategy, Management and Operations". The conference will feature a multidisciplinary program, with international speakers and participants from the field of Industrial Logistics.
The main objectives of ICIL '08 are the presentation of original research results and contributions to the field of logistics; and the discussion and exchange of experiences and ideas to further develop and broaden the applications of this field in the national and international level.
The mission of ICIL '08 is to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners to share experiences and insights of the current state-of-the-art, and to contribute to shaping the future of industrial logistics.
The conference will be held in conjunction with the 15th Israeli national conference on Industrial Engineering and Management (IE&M '08). The IE&M conferences are very popular with both academics and practitioners and generally attract over 1,000 participants from Israeli academia and industry. Participants in ICIL '08 will have a unique opportunity to interact and network not only with each other, but also with leading Israeli researchers, practitioners and senior managers.
As usual, a potential field trip is planned to a leading international Israeli Corporation, possibly the Dead Sea works facilities located at the Dead Sea at southern Israel.
The planned venue is the David Intercontinental Hotel and the Dan Hotel in the picturesque and historical city of Tel Aviv – Jaffa. The hotels overlook the ancient Jaffa Harbor and the "white city" of Tel Aviv, proclaimed a World Cultural Heritage site by UNESCO for its special "Bauhaus" architectural style. The hotel is just a 30 minute drive from Ben-Gurion International Airport.

Joining us at the conference will also enable you to explore the Land of Israel, birthplace of the three great monotheistic religions. The hotel is only an hour drive from Jerusalem, and couple of hours drive from the Dead Sea and from the Sea of Galilee (all interesting historical and religious sites that may be visited).
It is our pleasure and privilege to invite you to take part in ICIL '08 in Israel.
We look forward to a great conference and to welcoming you and your colleagues to Tel Aviv.
Prof. Ehud Menipaz
