It is our pleasure to invite you to participate in the IEEE 7th edition of the 2019 International Conference on Advanced Logistics and Transport (IEEE ICALT 2019), which will be hosted on 14-16  June 2019 by ENSA Marrakech (University Cadi Ayayd) , in collaboration with University of Sfax  (Tunisia) and the University Polytechnique  Hauts-de-France (France). The 1st, 2nd, and 3rd editions were organized in Tunisia. Then, the conference moved to France (2015),as well as  Poland (2016), and Indonesia (2017).

IEEE ICALT 2019 aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners working in industry and academia to provide them with a platform to report on the latest developments, achievements, deployments, technology trends, and research findings as well as initiatives related to Logistics & Transport and their applications.
