    The Supply Chain Management Special Interest Group (SCM SIG) of the Manufacturing and Service Operations Management Society (MSOM) will hold its annual conference on Sunday June 28, 2020 at Banff National Park in Alberta, Canada, preceding the MSOM 2020 conference (June 29-30).

    On behalf of the SCM SIG, we would like to invite you to submit papers to this conference. Acceptance decisions will be based on full paper submissions. Presentations of the accepted papers will be scheduled in a single track. We are seeking high quality papers to be presented at the meeting. These papers can be analytical, empirical, theoretical, methodological, or applied, and may address any topic within the broad range of topics about supply chain management.

    Important Dates

    Submission deadline (full paper):              Feb 16th, 2020 (Extended)

    Notification of Acceptance:                        March 20, 2020

    Deadline to update accepted papers:        May 27, 2020

    Submission Guidelines and Review Process

    Submission portal:

    • Attach the Paper file in pdf format: The file should include the paper's title, abstract, main body, references, figures, tables, and appendices. The main body of the paper should not exceed 32 pages. Appendices can be added beyond this page limit. The paper should comply with the MSOM formatting standards:
    • The papers will undergo a double-blind review process by an expert panel. To support this process, author names should NOT appear anywhere in the paper file. The authors of papers accepted to the SCM SIG conference may submit an updated paper version by May 27, 2020. 

    Coordination with the general MSOM Conference

    Although the same work may not be presented in both the MSOM Conference and a SIG Conference, authors may have their submission considered by both. To do so, the authors should only make a single submission to the SIG Conference and indicate in the submission that they would also like to be considered for the MSOM conference in case the paper is not accepted by the SIG Conference (which has higher priority). The same work may not be submitted to more than one SIG Conference.
