Updated Conference News

1) Postponement

Due to the current worldwide outbreak of COVID-19, the 6th World Conference on Production and Operations Management is postponed to September 7-10, 2021. The venue remains Nara. The Conference provides a global forum for researchers and practitioners to exchange innovative ideas on Operations Management. One of the main goals of the P&OM World Conferences is to facilitate high global networking. Therefore the Conference is about face-to-face, in person communication. Current news make us to anticipate that restrictions associated with the pandemic conditions will have eased. If that is not the case, the Conference will be postponed to 2022, with any monies paid in advance returned (except if participants wish to keep it for the 2022 fees)

The conference theme and topics stay the same but with the addition of the impact of COVID-19 on supply chains and operations. The conference committees will work hard to make the P&OM Nara 2021 Conference a successful forum to proactively address post outbreak operations issues.
