=========================================================================
We are pleased to announce and invite you to participate in the
HICL2006
Hamburg International Conference of Logistics, which will be held at
Hamburg
University of Technology (TUHH), Germany from 15 - 16 September 2006.
This
international conference is co-organized by the Hamburg University of
Technology (TUHH) and the Hamburg School of Logistics (HSL).
- Theme and Objectives -
In today's business environment, it is widely accepted that competition
no
longer takes place between individual companies but between entire
supply
chains. On the other hand, the focus on core competencies and reduction
of
the level of vertical integration have led companies to intensify their
outsourcing activities. Because of this, the coordination requirements
within supply chains are especially high and the complexity of
information
and physical flows has become a challenging issue. In addition, due to
the
volatility of customer requirements and rapid technological
development,
supply chains have to react effectively through adaptability and quick
reconfiguration. Therefore, supply chains should not be static but
dynamic
structures, which have the capability of accommodating the changes
occurring
in their environment. The result of all these factors is a drastic
increase
of complexity and risks in supply chains. Complexity has negative
impacts on
efficiency and considerably decreases responsiveness by slowing down
the
entire supply chain. Risks are mainly related to the uncertainty in the
business environment and can disturb the development path of the supply
chain in the future. Thus, the main challenge concerns how to keep
structures at a low level of complexity, while decreasing sensitivity
to
risks and ensuring a high level of adaptability. Complexity and risk
management both represent actual research topics that should be paid
more
attention by the supply chain researchers and practitioners.
Complexity and Risk Management in Supply Chains - The HICL will provide
a
multidisciplinary network and forum for scientists and practitioners
involved in complexity and supply chain risk management to interact
with
each other and exchange ideas and information on the latest
advancements/issues in this field.
We welcome scientific and practical contributions from different
disciplines
such as Business Administration & Economics, Engineering, Computer
Science,
Science & Mathematics and law.
