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

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 Conference is held every year to disseminate knowledge and share new ideas and innovations in managing manufacturing and service operations for businesses as well as for Governments, NGOs and other organizations. The conference will see participation from academicians, researchers, doctoral students and practitioners to submit theoretical, empirical papers ad case studies on any broad area of Operations Management. Please read the details given below.

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:
