11th ISIR Summer School on Research Trends in Inventory Management and Modeling
Faculty of Economics and Business, University of Neuchatel, Switzerland
There are no doubts that inventory research has many intersections with other disciplines that open new research perspectives. Therefore, the idea of this summer school is to bring together researchers from the field of inventory management as well as inventory modeling. This will facilitate research in emerging areas, as for example, innovative inventory control, integrated demand and supply management, sustainable supply chain management, behavioral aspects of inventory management, coordinated decision making, reverse logistics, inventory management in service operations, and humanitarian logistics. The 11th ISIR Summer School is organized by ISIR and Prof. Gerald Reiner (University of Neuchatel, Faculty of Economics and Business).
The objective of the summer school is to provide a place for Ph.D. students to present their research work and to discuss various aspects with fellow students and senior researchers. For each presentation given by a Ph.D. student two participants – one Ph.D. student and one senior researcher – will act as discussants. In addition to the presentations of Ph.D. students, senior researchers will give talks and offer tutorials.
Application and Registration
We invite Ph.D. students to apply to participate in the summer school by submitting an extended abstract (about 400?500 words) of their working paper until April 30, 2013. Ph.D. students will be notified about the acceptance of their paper before May 15, 2013. Upon acceptance, Ph.D. students are asked to submit a complete working paper until June 30, 2013.
Senior researchers who would like to give a presentation or act as a discussant are asked to send a note before April 30, 2013. Senior researchers are encouraged to participate together with a Ph.D. student.
Ph.D. students and senior researchers have to register before June 15, 2013. The registration fee for the summer school is 190 EUR and includes lunches, an excursion, the social program and a gala dinner.
Location and Venue
The summer school will be held at the University of Neuchatel (http://www.unine.ch
), located in the heart of the city of Neuchatel, Switzerland.
