21st International Symposium on Inventories

May 10, 2020 is the deadline for submitting your abstract for the coming ISIR Symposium!

Though at the moment every citizen on the globe is majorly impacted by the Coronavirus, based on the various scientific predictions we believe that by the end of May we will be over the hard times and the peak will have already passed. We truly hope that the 21st ISIR Symposium can be organized in August, as planned, and therefore reconsidered the timing schedule of the abstract submission.

We understand that it may be difficult to commit to travel at present, so we are extending the deadline for the abstract submission to 10th of May 2020. We hope by this point there will be greater clarity, and confidence to travel.

We very much look forward to welcoming you to Budapest in August.

The International Society for Inventory Research (ISIR) organizes its 21st International Symposium on Inventories,
the only scholarly forum in the world focusing directly on inventories.

The professional objective of organizing this Symposium is to provide a forum for an international exchange
of ideas on various aspects of inventories. Papers on macro- and microeconomics, econometrics, economic policy,
business, management, operations management and operations research aspects of inventory problems and
