Now: DSI

DSI 2011 comes with insights to the state of the art research in logistics, humanitarian logistics (even as a keynote), green SCM, and sports stats – just how to share the blame, and more interestingly, how to attribute performance shares. There is a nice young talent showcase track, though there seems to be a lack of young talent overall, at least if one considers the relatively few applicants to lots of jobs that were interviewed for at the conference.

A take-away is a call for multi-disciplinary and multi-method research, though multi-disciplinary stands for the good old OR+marketing, and multi-method for anything empirical that feeds into a model. Funny we are still trying to bridge the gaps between all sorts of different streams that feed into SCM research, seemingly not successfully.
