Time: 16:00-17:00 hrs, UK time

Following Prof Chris Tang’s excellent keynote address during the ISL conference in July 2021, many requests have been received, if the ISL community can invite him for a more informal and interactive session. We are, therefore, delighted to announce that Prof Chris Tang has agreed to be with us on 7th December 2021.

The prime purpose of the workshop is to learn from Prof Tang’s immense knowledge and experience on how to increase visibility of your research and enhance impact. It will be fairly informal and interactive event where Prof Tang will share and provide insights to the approach he has adopted in conducting research into different aspects of supply chains and operations management and subsequently relating it to practice. There is no formal agenda and will be driven by questions raised by the participants.
