EurOMA breaks record for paper submissions
A prestigious international conference on Operations Management has become a record breaker, having received more than 850 academic paper submissions.
EurOMA 2011 is being hosted by the University of Cambridge’s Institute for Manufacturing and the Judge Business School.
The conference – which attracts around 500 delegates from Europe and from countries as far flung as Malaysia, Iran and Brazil – is being held for the 18th time.
The event, which takes place from 3-6 of July, is designed for academics and practitioners from around the world who have a common interest in the continuing development of Operations Management.
Organisers say they have been delighted at the record number of abstracts received. A spokesperson for the conference said: “We’re delighted with the level of submissions for the conference.
“We have received a record number of abstracts, which we think, demonstrates the significant level of research interest in exploring the changing nature of Operations Management.”
The conference programme will include around 300 papers and keynote presentations as well as workshops for PhD students and Young Scholars. There is also a programme of technical visits, a conference dinner and a programme for accompanying persons.
The Chairmen are Dr Jag Srai (pictured, right), head of the IfM’s Centre for International Manufacturing, and Dr Matthias Holweg Reader of Operations Management at the Judge Business School. For further information, visit the website.
