MSIS track- SCSC 2012 : Modeling and Simulation of Inventory Systems
Call For Papers
The design, operation, and improvement of inventory systems presents many challenges for both practitioners and researchers. The formulation of policies and controls for determining what levels of inventory should be maintained, as well as when and in what quantities replenishments should be made, is made complex by a multitude of factors that occur in a manufacturing or service organization and its supply chain.
This track offers the possibility for researchers in the academic, manufacturing/service, and public sectors to present findings on a multitude of aspects of or concerns in the management of inventory systems, including (but certainly not limited to):
· Multi-item/multi-location/multi-echelon inventory systems
· Stochastic and/or erratic/intermittent demand
· Deteriorating inventory
· Time series forecasting in demand management and inventory control
· Managing inventories in reverse logistics systems
Authors are invited to submit abstracts or full papers by February 1, 2012. Only original papers, written in English, which have not been previously published elsewhere will be accepted.
Special session proposals January 16, 2012
Submission of papers February 1, 2012
Notification of Acceptance March 15, 2012
Final Submission April 16, 2012
The conference committee will accept three types of papers (as listed below) submitted as a PDF file by using the conference submission system. Final version of all the papers MUST COMPLY with the SCS conference format. All the submitted papers will be peer reviewed with respect to their quality, originality and relevance.
The authors of the accepted paper MUST register in advance for inclusion of their paper in the conference proceedings.
1. Full manuscript: 8 pages in final conference format. In addition to publication in the conference proceedings, they will be considered for best paper award and for possible inclusion in a Special Issue of the Simulation Journal (SCS). Full papers will be published both in hard copy and CD-ROM.
2. Work in Progress: Short papers up to 6 pages in final conference format
3. Short Papers: Papers with industrial focus, military or government applications, and work-in-progress in abstract or short paper format.
Each paper must include the title, authors, affiliations, addresses, references and abstract for proper positioning in the conference. Only original papers, written in English, which have not been published previously elsewhere, will be accepted. Please indicate which conference topic is most appropriate.
Please note that in case of acceptance, your final manuscript will need to be submitted electronically as a PDF file to the conference website by the deadline to guarantee inclusion in the conference CD and final program. Authors of accepted papers are expected to attend the conference, present their work to their peers, transfer copyright, and pay a conference registration fee at the time their camera-ready paper is submitted. All papers will be included in the conference proceedings and archived in both the SCS digital library and the ACM Digital Library; Full Papers will be also printed in hard copy.
