Inviting Papers for the Annual International Conference of the Society of Operations Management

Inviting Papers for the Annual International Conference of the Society of Operations Management
December 21, 2017 Amrut Mody School of Management Conference

Amrut Mody School of Management will play host to the XXI Annual International Conference of the Society of Operations Management (SOM) in December 2017.

The objective of the Conference would be to provide participants with a platform to disseminate and share knowledge and experiences through the presentation of research papers, panel discussions, and one-on-one or group meetings. Papers addressing a broader area of Operations Management and the interfaces between Operations Management and other disciplines of Management are also welcome. While, on the one hand, participants will be exposed to new theoretical developments in the field, on the other hand, they will be exposed to practical applications of theories through real-life examples and case studies. Since the conference will be a congregation of academicians, practitioners, doctoral students and other researchers, both theories and practices of Operations Management will get due prominence and are expected to complement each other during the course of the Conference.

Theoretical papers with examples of real-life applications of theory will get preference over papers with only theoretical contributions. The possible topics of Conference papers are (but may not be limited to) the following:

- Behavioural Operations Management     
- City/Urban Logistics     
- Closed Loop Supply Chains
- Empirical Research in OM     
- General Management     
- Healthcare Operations Management
- Humanitarian Logistics and Disaster Relief
