Japanese Operations Management and Strategy Association (JOMSA) as the hosting organization is privileged to hold the 9th International Symposium on Operations Management and Strategy (ISOMS 2019) in Tokyo, Japan.

The 11th JOMSA Annual Conference will be held jointly with ISOMS 2019.

The theme of this symposium is “Value Chain Strategy and IoT.”

IoT is the emerging technology which used to connect all objects through the Internet for remote sensing and control. This technology is dramatically changing value chains, and new value chain strategies are called for. Therefore, it is valuable to discuss the new value chain strategies with IoT. This symposium focuses on how to leverage IoT technologies to create new value chains for global competition. This symposium is to bring together researchers from academia and practitioners from different industries to share ideas, problems, and solutions.

We sincerely hope that many researchers, educators, and practitioners will assemble in this symposium to create new knowledge for the globalization of business. This symposium is positioned as a precursor to World P&OM 2020, which will be hosted by JOMSA, EurOMA and POMS. We look forward to your participation and exchanging inspiring ideas in Tokyo.
