The Logistics and Supply Chain (LSC) Division of the Institute of Industrial & Systems Engineers (IISE) is sponsoring the Logistics and Supply Chain Track at the 2020 IISE Annual Conference & Expo. The conference is a forum for exchanging knowledge and discoveries in the industrial and systems engineering research and practitioner communities. The 2020 IISE Annual Conference & Expo will continue to integrate research and industry applications under one conference.
As track chairs of the Logistics and Supply Chain Track, we encourage you to contribute to the conference and track by submitting a 1-page extended abstract (template provided on the abstract submission website). Authors will be able to claim these works as refereed extended abstracts, which will be available on the conference website and can be cited. They will not be copyrighted or indexed in the official conference proceedings, and therefore there is no limitation on reusing extended abstract material for other purposes (e.g., toward the publication of journal papers or subsequent conference proceedings). Extended abstracts are welcome in the following areas:
Logistics Network Design and Optimization
Logistics Network Simulation
Inventory Optimization and Control
Supply Chain Modeling and Simulation
Supply Chain & Logistics Applications
Supply Chain Analysis and Design
Green or Sustainable Supply Chain
Logistics for Energy Production
Procurement and Supplier Selection
Coordination and Collaboration
Offshoring and Reshoring
Humanitarian Supply Chains
Supply Chain Reliability and Resilience
Service Supply Chains
Authors of accepted abstracts will be invited to present their work in a conference session. Regular sessions will be 80 minutes and have up to four presenters. There are also opportunities to organize special sessions (e.g., tutorials, panels, workshops). If you are interested in organizing such a session, please contact the track chairs by October 15, 2019. We also encourage all presenters to submit a full length paper for the conference proceedings. The papers should contain methods and results that are significant and have archival value to the industrial and systems engineering community. Full papers have a six-page limit and will undergo a double-blind peer review process. All accepted papers will be copyrighted and indexed in the conference proceedings via ProQuest.
The LSC Division will give Best Paper and Best Student Paper awards for the LSC Track. The first place winners will receive framed certificates and be recognized during the LSC Division Town Hall Meeting. For the Best Student Paper Competition, the lead author of the paper must be identified as a student at the time of the abstract submission. Additional qualification requirements and the selection criteria are listed at https://www.iise.org/Details.aspx?id=40986.
If your abstract or paper is accepted: (a) the presenting author for the paper must register for the conference by March 13, 2020 (presentations/papers without the presenting author being registered for the conference will be withdrawn from the program and the proceedings); (b) the presenting author must attend and present the paper at the conference; and (c) we ask that you be ready to serve as a reviewer for other papers in the track and follow the review deadlines.
We look forward to seeing you in New Orleans!
