Hosted by the Purchasing Management Association of Canada (PMAC) the two-day Symposium is where global supply chain solutions emerge. A platform for academic researchers and supply chain leaders to review research, share ideas, and develop solutions to critical supply chain issues, the Symposium brings together practitioners from the public and private sectors and academics from around the world to engage in lively exchanges of information and experience.
Goals of the Symposium
- Create opportunities for academics to learn about the practical application of knowledge in the field and discover new areas of research
- Allow companies to leverage well-researched solutions to supply chain challenges and enhance their competitive advantage
- Build partnerships where academics and practitioners can undertake joint research projects for mutual benefit
New for 2013
Starting in 2013, PMAC and the Institute for Supply Management™ (ISM) will alternate the event and venue each year between ISM’s North American Research Symposium on Purchasing and Supply Chain Management (NARS) and PMAC’s International Symposium on Supply Chain Management to create an inclusive North American academic symposium.
