The Center for Applied Research and Innovation in Supply Chain – Africa (CARISCA) Supply Chain Research Summit 2021 program committee is pleased to announce a call for papers for the best PhD dissertation proposal. CARISCA will recognize a winner and two runner-ups at the virtual summit July 21-22, 2021. The dissertation committee will also provide feedback on submissions upon request.
The PhD Dissertation Competition session at the CARISCA Supply Chain Research Summit is intended to showcase the best logistics and supply chain management PhD research projects being carried out in African higher education institutions.
We invite submissions from doctoral researchers whose primary affiliation is from universities or higher institutions of learning in Africa and whose research is in logistics and supply chain management. Applicants must be PhD researchers who have at least defended their proposals by the time of the conference. Proposals are also invited from candidates close to the final submission or defense of their thesis. Proposals are welcome from all African countries, including Francophone and Anglophone countries, but the proposals should be submitted in English.
