              The eleventh annual international conference of the Chinese scholars Association for Management Science and Engineering (CSAMSE) will be held on July 14-16, 2018 at Ningbo Supply Chain Innovation Institute China (NSCIIC) in Ningbo, China.

              The Chinese Scholars Association for Management Science and Engineering (CSAMSE) is a highly recognized and rapidly growing community of scholars, in the field of Management Science and Engineering (MSE), who share the common interest to promote the communication between academia and industry and to improve management theory and practice in China. Over the past 11 years, our annual conference has developed into a great meeting place to understand the latest business developments in China and to keep abreast of the cutting-edge research ideas in Management Science and Engineering.

              The theme of the 2018 CSAMSE conference, Building Intelligent Supply Chains, reflects our desire to promote research that reflects the changing landscape of the global economy. We invite scholars in MSE, broadly defined, from around the world to present their research at the conference. Of course, papers that are in line with the conference theme are especially welcome. As in the past, we will invite world-renown scholars and industry thought leaders to give keynote speeches and lead panel discussions. More updated information will be announced on the conference website.



              The CSAMSE Young Scholars Colloquium will take place again at the 2018 CSAMSE conference. We cordially invite young scholars (assistant/associate professors and advanced doctoral students) to the colloquium that will feature panel discussions with leading academics who have extensive research and senior editorial experiences. The purpose of this colloquium is to bring together young scholars in the field of Management Science and Engineering to discuss the challenges they face in research and in the process of publishing in top-tier journals. Pre-registration at the conference website is required for the colloquium and seats are assigned on a first-come first-served basis.  


              The CSAMSE Female Scholars Luncheon provides a great networking opportunity to discuss challenges in career development and to share experiences that are unique for female scholars in operations research, operations management, and industrial engineering. The Luncheon welcomes female scholars at various stages of their career (assistant/associate/full professors, as well as doctoral students) to join the event. As usual, we will have several guests to join us and share their thoughts and experiences.


              A conference website is forthcoming, with news and updates.
