Save the Dates: June 3-6, 2024

Selected faculty and senior doctoral candidates from higher education institutions (HEIs) in Africa will participate in a special Paper Development Workshop, a pre-conference session of our annual Supply Chain Research Summit.

The workshop will be held on Monday, June 3, 2024, in a hybrid format.

The number of seats for the program is limited. To be eligible, you must be a faculty or senior doctoral student in an African HEI, register for the conference and have a complete or near-complete research paper. The same paper may be submitted for presentation at the conference but does not have to be.

The goal of the Paper Development Workshop is to create a platform for faculty and senior doctoral candidates to meet with and seek professional advice from senior supply chain scholars on a specific academic research paper. It should be a paper you are currently working on that is at an advanced stage for submission or ready to be submitted to an academic journal.

Feedback will be provided in a safe environment. Participants will also be able to engage with senior colleagues in more focused discussions. 

The workshop is fully supported by the Center for Applied Research and Innovation in Supply Chain – Africa (CARISCA); there is no cost to attendees.
