The Fifth IEEE International Conference on Service Operations, Logistics and Informatics (SOLI 2009) will be held in Chicago, as a sequel of SOLI 2005 /SOLI 2006 /SOLI 2007 /SOLI 2008. Chicago is very rich in natural and artificial landscapes. Chicago's set of museums and cultural institutions are among the best in the world. Three of them are located within a short walk of each other in the near south along the lake: the Adler Planetarium, the Field Museum, and the Shedd Aquarium. SOLI 2009 will provide a remarkable opportunity for the academic and industrial communities to address new challenges and share solutions, and discuss future research directions. It will feature plenary speeches, industrial panel sessions, lecture sessions, interactive sessions, and invited/special sessions. Papers related to services/logistics design, innovations, marketing, operations, and informatics are strongly encouraged.

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we would like to invite you to participate in this exciting event.

Chicago Introduction

light at the end of the tunnel There is so much to experience in Chicago, it's difficult to know where to begin. You may want to start with an overview of the city. First, see the expanse of the Chicagoland area from 1,000 feet above at the John Hancock Observatory or the Sears Tower Skydeck. At Navy Pier, Time Escape is a 3-D motion simulation experience allowing you to travel through Chicago's history, present and future. There are a variety of boat tours departing from Navy Pier and other city locations, as well as city bus tours, which point out significant landmarks and provide interesting information about Chicago and its history.
