    ITMMAPS 2006 will bring together industry leaders and academics to exchange ideas on the conference theme 'Fostering Seaports - and Beyond'. Ports are confronted with changing economic and logistics systems. The global market place, with powerful and relatively footloose players, extensive business networks and complex logistics systems, have a dramatic impact on the raison d'être of seaports. The logistics environment creates a high degree of uncertainty and leaves port managers with the question how to respond effectively to market dynamics. We should foster the role seaports have to play in facilitating the global economy. But at the same time, seaports need to be embedded in their local multi-stakeholder environment. ITMMAPS 2006 will help to unravel today's challenges and advance and update our thinking on ports. Conference topics include logistics integration in shipping and ports, port governance and the role of port authorities, the 'China factor' in the European port and logistics industry, the human factor in terminal operations, a stakeholders approach to port planning and more. The event will incorporate the results of past conferences (ITMMAPS 2002, ICLSP 2004, ESPO 2005 and ESPO 2006).
