To reach competitive advantage in an era of constant innovation, organizations ought to develop infrastructure that integrates internal functions as well as relationships with suppliers, customers and all of the partners within integrated supply chains. Academic research and business practices are crucial to develop cohesive and interconnected supply chains. Supply chain decisions providing appropriate responses to manage challenges and opportunities associated with innovative technologies, demand uncertainty, and deployment are important for all the stakeholders. In this context, organizers of the Eighth International Conference on Information, Logistics and Supply Chain (ILS) to take place in April 22-24, 2020 invite academics and industry to exchange research and practices on trends, vulnerabilities, and risks in obtaining integrated supply chains.
