    CALL FOR PAPERS

    The IPSERA 2020 conference theme is "Procurement Innovation". Procurement requires the application of science and technology, analytical skills and quantitative methods; on the other hand, it requires a need for creativity and understanding of soft behavioral skills. The digital transformation is opening new opportunities for the management of Purchasing and Supply Chains, making "big data" available and offering analytical tools to manage them. It is also aiding in networking and the sharing of innovative ideas. This enables both disruption of existing practices and outdated technologies, as well as new ways to tackle sustainability challenges, e.g. through better transparency and control of supply chain risk.

     

    Submissions of working papers, competitive papers, professional development workshops, and panel sessions will be accepted for conference presentation.

     

    Applications are also being accepted for the doctoral consortium and the educator's conference.
