The Supply Chain and Finance 2nd Annual Symposium will be held on May 24-25, 2012 at the Silken Zentro Hotel in Zaragoza, Spain.

This series of international events offers an exclusive forum for the exchange of knowledge related to the interrelationship between both supply chain and finance (SC&F) fields. Building upon the success of the 1st Annual Symposium conducted last year in Wiesbaden, Germany, the event also intends to expand and consolidate a unique community of leading academic researchers interested in the Finance and Operations Management interface. We are expecting to host a great sample of the best talent in the academic area worldwide. Therefore, this event is really a unique opportunity to meet with all of them and learn about where the frontier on this area is today.

The conference will feature a single track of academic presentations on latest research. The agenda is organized over one and a half day with up to eight 90-minute sessions. Each session has two 45-minute presentations, including time for Q&A. The proposed format will foster a productive interaction among speakers and other conference participants in order to meet the needs as well as the expectations for further research in supply chain and finance.
