We welcome researchers’ and practitioners’ submissions focusing on the technologies, OR methods, models, simulations and tools that can be used to improve humanitarian response in an increasingly complex and dynamic world. Contributions on the broad topics of humanitarian supply chains including refugees, health, conflicts, natural disasters, preparedness as well as creative and critical reflections are welcome. We are especially looking for contributions that discuss cash, vouchers, financial assistance for beneficiaries, as well as work that compare different modalities (cash vs in-kind).
Authors, who would like to present their work at the conference, are invited to submit a 250-word abstract for consideration by the scientific committee. This can include both completed work and ongoing research. Presentations of results from empirical work and “Insights from the Field” are especially welcome.
Abstracts must be submitted online at: EASYCHAIR and received by 1 July, 23:59 Finnish time.
When you access the EasyChair site, you will need to log-in (or register, if you do not have an account). Once logged in, please follow the on-screen prompts, and click on the “New Submission” tab to start the process. Make sure to provide all the required information during the submission.
All authors will be informed by 15 July 2020 whether their research has been accepted for presentation at the conference. The email will consist of information for presentation preparation. For accepted abstracts, at least one of the authors need to attend the conference.
