Theme and Scope of the Conference

The theme of the EurOMA 2015 conference is “Operations Management for sustainable competitiveness”. This topic addresses the changing requirements during crises and economic recovery; research should explore, in particular, in which way Operations Management for products and services may tackle economic, environmental and social performance objectives while keeping businesses financially sound. Against the background of these comprehensive performance dimensions, Operations Management indispensably needs to generate innovations in order to remain competitive. Based on the tradition of the EurOMA conferences we seek a balance between academia and practice, manufacturing and service aspects, public sector and private sector, etc. Papers on all topics related to research, practice, and teaching of Operations Management are invited, in particular the topics below should be addressed (see EurOMA 2011 as well as EurOMA 2013, extended by sustainability related topics):
