5th Production & Operations Management World Conference

I just came back from the 5th Production & Operations Management World Conference, which was held in Havana, Cuba. The P&OM World Conference is co-organized every four years by three leading academic associations which represent the operations management discipline in three regions: EurOMA, JOMSA and POMS. What I really like about the conference is the global networking opportunity it offers. The majority of the 450 participants of this year’s conference was European and I met many friends who use to attend the EurOMA Conferences. But, although the political tensions between Cuba and the U.S. made it a bit complicated for U.S. citizens to travel to Havana, the conference also attracted many participants from the U.S. as well as Japan and other parts of the globe. Many participants were leading OM and SCM academics. The next P&OM World Conference, which should not be confused with the POMS Annual Conference in North America, will be organized by JOMSA.
