    Dear Colleagues,


    The Logistics & Supply Chain Division of the Institute of Industrial & Systems Engineers (IISE) is sponsoring the Logistics and Supply Chain Track at the IISE Annual Conference & Expo 2022. The conference is a forum for exchanging knowledge and discoveries in the industrial and systems engineering research and practitioner communities. The IISE Annual Conference & Expo 2022 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 250-word abstract or presentation summary. 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 this material for other purposes (e.g., toward the publication of journal papers or subsequent conference proceedings). Abstracts and presentation summaries 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
    • Transportation Systems
    • Supply Chain Analysis and Design
    • Green or Sustainable Supply Chain
    • Logistics for Energy Production
    • Procurement and Supplier Selection
    • Demand Planning
    • Information Sharing
    • Coordination and Collaboration
    • Offshoring and Reshoring
    • Humanitarian Supply Chains
    • Supply Chain Reliability and Resilience
    • Service Supply Chains
    • Reverse Logistics


    Authors of accepted abstracts and presentation summaries 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.


    We strongly encourage all presenters to submit a paper for publication so discoveries can be permanently documented.  This year, two types of papers will be considered: research papers and case study papers. 

    • Research papers (with a limit of six pages) contain methods and results that are significant and have archival value to the industrial and systems engineering community.  They will undergo a double-blind peer review process and accepted papers will be copyrighted and indexed in the Conference Proceedings via ProQuest.
    • Case study papers (of two to six pages) describe the application of a method or technology that addresses an important industry-motivated issue.  They will be reviewed to ensure that the content focuses on the value and lessons learned for the industrial and systems engineering community. The case study papers should avoid significant marketing material. Accepted manuscripts will be published with access via the IISE website. 


    Important deadlines:

    • Submission deadline for abstract/presentation summary:                         November 1, 2021
    • Notification of decision on abstract/presentation summary:                       December 6, 2021
    • Paper submission deadline:                                                                       January 20, 2022

    (Paper submission is optional but encouraged.)                          

    • Speaker registration deadline:                                                                    January 20, 2022

    • Notification of decision on paper:                                                                March 1, 2022
    • Presenting author registration deadline:                                                      March 7, 2022

    • Paper final revision submission deadline:                                                    March 14, 2022


    Presenters submitting an abstract or presentation summary only (without a paper) must register by January 20, 2022. Presenters submitting a paper for consideration are granted an extended registration deadline of March 7, 2022. All presenters must register for the conference to avoid having their presentations/papers withdrawn from the program and the proceedings. The presenting author must attend and present the paper at the conference.

    We look forward to seeing you in Seattle!
