27 August 2020 – 3:00 -6:15 pm (CEST)
The current pandemics have and will have major influence on how economies operate. One of the most important lasting effect of this catastrophy is the increase of uncertainties at both the macro- and the micro levels of the global economy.
It is well understood both in theory and practice that inventories are among the most important tools in the fight with uncertainties. No wonder that the crisis turns attention towards inventories, appropriate to mitigate the inreased risks of operations and trade.
ISIR was forced to postpone its 21th Symposium to 2021. However we would like to meet at least in the virtual space with those colleagues who want to discuss timely, COVID related inventory papers and a proposal for joint research inspired by the present crisis.
