Call for papers

The theme of the 2011 EurOMA conference is “Exploring Interfaces”, reflecting the changing nature of the Operations Management field -- which has seen a shift away from the traditional manufacturing-centric view of operations, towards a more balanced view that considers both academic and practice perspectives, captures both manufacturing and service aspects, reflects private and public sector contexts, etc Papers on all topics related to the research, practice, and teaching of Operations Management are invited; however, preference will be given to those that show the best fit with the conference theme and tracks:


  • Managing the Operations-Marketing interface (including demand and capacity management)
  • Managing the Operations-Strategy interface (including resource-based perspectives on firm decisions)
  • Managing the Operations-Finance interface (including wider performance aspectsof operations)
  • Human Resource Management aspects in Operations  (including all socio-technical aspects of operations)
  • The manufacturing-service interface (including service operations aspects in general)
