Call for submissions: 16th CEMS Research Seminar 2019


January 23 – 27 (WED- SUN), 2019 

Haus Bergkranz, Riezlern, Austria

 Continuing the history of almost one and a half dozen successful seminars we have the pleasure to invite herewith to the upcoming 16h CEMS research seminar on Supply Chain Management and logistics. The seminar will again allow for a wide range of potential contributions to all the different facets of research projects encompassing operational, tactical as well as strategic topics within Logistics and Supply Chain Management (SCM). 

The seminar is by tradition not restricted to specific approaches and research methods used may be quantitative modelling (stochastic, deterministic, simulation), quantitative empirical or as well of a more qualitative, conceptual nature. Ideal submissions should, however, show a clear and well communicated research problem reflecting major trends currently evolving in scientific research and applied practice. Topics may relate – but are not limited – to the following research areas: 

 Configuration, mobilization, development of logistics networks and supply chains, e.g.: 

  • Evolving roles and specific actors 
  • Outsourcing and relationships
  • Governance and collaboration 
  • Supply chain planning and execution 

Specific views or specific supply chains: 

  • Closed loop SCM, CSR and sustainability 
  • Humanitarian logistics 
  • Supply Chains of the Future 

 Specific functional areas and activities within the supply chain, such as: 

  • Procurement, production, distribution 
  • Transportation 
  • Warehousing, inventory management 
  • Capacity aspects of SCM 
  • Planning and scheduling 
  • Information management 

Methodological, conceptual input to supply chain theory, teaching, research or publishing strategies 

Important Dates: October 17, 2018 

Submission deadline: November 12, 2018 

Notification (at the latest) on accepted submissions: November 26, 2018 

Registration deadline: January 23 – 27, 2019
