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 2019 IISE Annual Conference and Expo. The conference is a forum for exchanging knowledge and discoveries in the industrial and systems engineering research and practitioner communities. The 2019 IISE Annual Conference and Expo integrates research and industry under one conference.
As track chairs of the Logistics and Supply Chain Track, we would like to encourage you to contribute to the conference by submitting an abstract. Authors of accepted abstracts will be invited to present their work in a session, choosing either a standard 20-minute presentation or a new 40-minute presentation for a lengthier discussion. Each session will be 80 minutes. Abstracts are welcomed for the Logistics and Supply Chain Track in the following areas:
Logistics Network Optimization
Logistics Network Simulation
Inventory Optimization and Control
Warehousing and Distribution Systems
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
Like previous years, full papers are optional and should contain results that are significant and have archival value to the industrial and systems engineering research and practitioner community. Full papers have a six-page limit and will undergo a double-blind peer review process with more rigor relative to the extended abstract. Accepted papers will be copyrighted and indexed in the conference proceedings. Authors of rejected papers will be given the opportunity to resubmit their work as an extended abstract.
Important deadlines for the conference are as follows (NOTE: THERE WILL BE NO EXTENSIONS)
If your abstract is accepted: (a) the presenting author must register for the conference by March 12, 2019 (presentations without the presenting author registered for the conference will be withdrawn from the program and the proceedings); (b) the presenting author must attend and present the paper at the conference (presenting authors who fail to attend will have their paper withdrawn from the proceedings); and (c) all authors who submit an extended abstract or a full paper are expected to review two extended abstracts or full papers (as appropriate) for fellow authors.
There are also opportunities to organize invited sessions, panels, and tutorials. In addition to research and practitioner presentations, the annual conference offers many opportunities for attendees, including plant tours, networking, and keynote speakers.
We look forward to seeing you in Orlando!
