The 5th International Workshop on Food Supply Chain (WFSC 2018) was held in September 4th – 6th December in Melbourne, Australia. The workshop was held in conjunction with 26thASOR National Conference for the Australian Society of Operations Research and Defence Operations Research Symposium (ASOR/DORS) 2018.For more information, please go to the ASOR DORS website
The 26thASOR National Conference for the Australian Society of Operations Research and Defence Operations Research Symposium (ASOR/DORS) 2018 brings together research in optimization, operation planning, informatics, opertations research, defence, simulation and modelling of industrial operations, statistics and big data analytics. Therefore, this conference was identified as the right partner of WFSC 2018 that, in this edition, decided to explore how the use of optimization and simulation technique may be implied to enahnce the overall food and beverage supply chain performace.
Call for papers
The Australian Society for Operations Research is the premier professional organisation for academics and practitioners working in optimisation and related disciplines of Operations Research. The WFSC 2018 welcomed papers exploring the application of Operations Research in the research area of food and beverage supply chains.
Important dates for ASOR DORS/WFSC 2018Registration opens and abstracts/full papers submission: from September 1st, 2018. Notification of acceptance for submissions: November 16th, 2018
Submission deadline for revised extended abstracts/full paper abstracts: November 21th, 2018
The ASOR DORS/WFSC 2018 was held in Melbourne, at the Rydges on Swanston, located in the heart of the Melbourne University Precinct and minutes away to central Melbourne.
Outcomes from the conference
The Full papers are currently under the final stages of publication by Springer, in a second volume of Data and Decision Sciences in Action under the Lecture Notes in Management and Industrial Engineering (LNMIE) series.
