2020 Conference

POSTPONEMENT !!! NOFOMA and NORDLOG was planned to be helt in Reykjavik, Iceland, June 10 to 12, 2020 but has been postponed until further noticed !!!

The 32nd annual NOFOMA conference was planned to be held in Reykjavik, Iceland, June 10 to 12, 2020 but has been postponed until the autumn as for now. Due to the unfortunate circumstances surrounding the Covid-19-virus outbreak, the NOFOMA 2020 organising committee has, in collaboration with the NOFOMA Board, decided in the best interest of everyone, to postpone the NOFOMA 2020 conference. It is, of course, our hope that the outbreak will be over during the summer, but due to the uncertainty and the fact that airline tickets and accommodation needs to be purchased in good advance for Iceland travel, the decision is inevitable. The local organising committee is in the process of organizing the details of the postponement and as for now the potential days of the conference is are late August throughout September 2020. Further updates will be provided to you as soon as more information is available. All full paper contributors have got instructions in regard to final submission. Further notices are to found here as soon as possible.

The conference and the Nordlog day will be organized by University of Iceland, Faculty of Industrial Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Computer Science

The second call for papers can be found here. More information on full paper submissions can be found here.

The NOFOMA network

NOFOMA is a society of Nordic researchers and colleagues within the logistics field. Beside being a contact network of logistics scientists sharing similar interests, the main activity of the network is to carry out an annual conference where researchers from the Nordic countries, including Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden meet as well as other colleagues from different countries around the world, particularly from USA and Central Europe. In association with the NOFOMA annual conference, the NORDLOG doctoral workshop takes place where Ph.D. Candidates from the Nordic countries get together and discuss their issues as well as to conduct some workshop activities within the field of logistics.
