International Conference
Connecting the Operations Management & Supply Chain Management World in Divided Times

About the conference

The beautiful city of Brighton (a.k.a London by the Sea) is the setting for this year’s Production and Operations Management Society (POMS) 2019 International Conference! This engaging and thought-provoking conference is hosted by the University of Sussex Business School and sponsored by the University of Cambridge's Judge Business School and Kingston Business School.


Our theme this year is “Connecting the OM&SCM world in divided times”. Trade wars, austerity and political uncertainty fill our television and newspaper headlines. Yet, despite these divided times, we have ever-increasing opportunities to connect with each other by building networks and through operational and technological advancements (e.g. Internet of things, blockchain).
