Keynote: Routing Problems: Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow

April 08, 2022, 9:40 AM - 10:10 AM


Online Event

M. Grazia Speranza, University of Brescia

The scientific community has worked for decades on vehicle routing problems, modeling many different real problems and designing exact and heuristic solution algorithms. Several commercial software packages to support routing decisions are available on the market as a proof of the practical relevance of this class of problems and of the impact of the research achievements. Technological developments are changing the way people move and goods are transported and stimulate research on new routing problems. Starting from the research carried out in the past, some recent trends will be presented together with future challenges.
