Welcome to
EurOMA Summer School 2019

Dear EurOMA friends,

The 9th EurOMA Summer School on Operations Management will be hosted by the University of Palermo, starting Sunday 26 May and ending Friday 31 May 2018, with a special focus on “OSCM 4.0”. This theme will aim at stimulating a deep and serious consideration of the challenges of OSCM research in the new era of Industry 4.0, Service 4.0, Health 4.0, etc. The digitalization of business and administrative processes, the IoT, cloud computing, block-chain, big data, advanced data analytics, machine learning and artificial intelligence are transforming the way in which operations and operations management are designed and deployed.

How a young researcher can approach these issues?

In organizing the 9th EurOMA Summer School in 2019, we would like to, first of all, provide a scientifically valid and networking productive event. Also, participants will have the chance to meet prominent scholars in the OSCM field who provide them with an overview of research in the field and an outlook on future research directions. But we, also, are pretty sure that conference participants will enjoy the stay in Palermo, the main city in Sicily both for its cultural, monumental, and historic value and for its beautiful sea, beaches and summer resorts.

The Summer School is targeted at PhD students and young researchers in Operations and Supply Chain Management from all over the world.

In order to maintain the highest standard, the enrolment is limited to a maximum of 40 participants.

The registration fee is 800€ and the deadline for registration will be the 22nd of March 2019. The details about registration and how to apply are available here.

We are looking forward to welcoming you in Palermo in May 2019 and having a wonderful 9th EurOMA Summer School.

Manfredi Bruccoleri, Chair of 9th EurOMA Summer School
