The 2nd ISB – POMS workshop is aimed at showcasing cutting edge academic research in the area of Socially Responsible Operations and Supply Chains.
Topics: The workshop will focus on diverse yet related topics such as healthcare delivery, food work that is motivated by problems in developing and underdeveloped economies, uses datasets from these settings and/or has policy implications for these contexts. However, these attributes are not necessary for submission. All methodologies (analytical modeling, empirical modeling, experiments) are welcome and the emphasis is on rigorous execution of these methodologies and practical relevance of the results.
Format: The workshop will comprise a single track of approximately 10 high quality presentations spread over 1.5 working days. Each presentation will be of 30 minutes duration followed by 15 minutes of discussion. In addition to the presentations, the workshop program will include a dedicated slot for a poster session featuring work of PhD students.
Submission guidelines: To be considered for the workshop, authors are requested to submit an extended abstract of four pages via email to isb_poms@isb.edu by September 10, 2014. It should describe the contextual motivation of the research problem, a brief discussion of methodology used, main results, and policy / managerial implications. The abstract should also clearly state whether the submission is toward the presentation track or toward the poster session. Submissions will be peer-reviewed and final decisions regarding all acceptances will be communicated on September 30, 2014.
Registration Fees and Expenses: Registration fee for non-student attendees is INR 6000 (USD 100) whereas it is INR 1500 (USD 25) for student attendees. Registration fee will be waived for presenters. On-site registration during the workshop is strictly subject to availability of seating capacity. Limited financial support will be provided to the presenters.
