2019 Call for Submissions 


Specific domain: The OSCM division invites scholarly papers and symposia submissions addressing any aspect of the supply chain and operations management. Topics include changing work design configurations, efficient and effective operations and supply chains, flow of material and information within and between organizations while minimizing required resources, non-value-added work, and variability as well as relevance of these topics in environment that is rapidly evolving to include artificial intelligence, robotics and internet of things.

Special Instructions: In addition to submissions addressing the supply chain and operations domain, the OSCM division also encourages papers and symposia focused on the 2019 conference theme, Understanding the Inclusive Organization. Inclusive organizations are open systems of opportunity in which all stakeholders have access to information, resources, and the capacity to fully contribute to their functioning. The 2019 theme invites members to understand the inclusive organization by answering such questions as: What is inclusive practice? How does inclusion effect employee, organizational, or societal outcomes? How can we create more inclusive environments? Submissions addressing the theme in these or other ways related to supply chain and operations management are welcome.

Symposia proposals are particularly encouraged, as they provide conference attendees a coherent, focused session of either a series of authored papers explicitly linked to a common theme, or a group of panelists engaged in a formal interactive discussion around particular issues or questions.

The OSCM division also encourages submissions from PhD students. Papers with a PhD student as the first or sole author should be clearly identified at the time of submission. We also encourage papers that are earlier in development that would benefit from collegial discussion.

Division AwardsThe OSCM division honors the following papers:

Chan Hahn Best Paper Award: All submitted and accepted papers are automatically entered into the competition. The Finalists are selected before the conference, and the award is announced and handed at the conference.

Best Student Paper Award: One of the papers authored and submitted by doctoral students will also be awarded for the Best Student Paper Award. To be To be considered for this award a paper must be identified as a “student authored” paper at the time of submission.

Please carefully review all the submission guidelines and formatting instructions before submitting. If any of the guidelines or formatting instructions are not met, the submission cannot be reviewed. Please, note that there is limited space on the scholarly program; therefore, not all submissions will be accepted. All submissions will nevertheless make an important contribution to the OSCM division, as the number of submissions impacts future allocation of time on the program.
