Supply chain security is often associated with the robustness and/or vulnerability to failures and disruptions. Potential sources of disruption to supply chains are numerous, ranging from routine events like strikes, process and system failures to natural disasters like earthquakes, hurricanes, floods, volcano eruptions, and large epidemics. In the post-9/11 era, the focus has shifted to events involving malevolence such as piracy, terrorism, counterfeiting, theft, smuggling and illegal trafficking.
Port Operations Research and Technology Centre (www.portec.org.uk) at the Centre for Transport Studies,Imperial College London, is organising a 2- day Conference on “Global Supply Chain Security” on 7-8 July 2011 in London, UK. This event seeks to address the operational, management, and policy challenges that supply chain security presents to businesses, governments and other supply chain stakeholders. The conference programme will include plenary sessions, paper presentations and poster sessions.
This event will bring together speakers from both industry and academia with knowledge, experience, visions, methods and results to share with delegates. The conference organisers welcome papers and/or presentations on the following:
- Themes (risk analysis, economic appraisal, technology applications, policy and regulations, crisis management, disaster recovery, etc.);
