Supply chain and logistics event Smart Conference & Expo is calling for papers and presentations for Smart 2013 which takes place in Sydney from 26-27 June.

With the theme Critical Links, the conference will explore the links that extend and sustain supply chains and the threats to them.

"Smart 2013 will provide delegates with the opportunity to analyse the critical links within their own supply chain, isolate the weakest links and identify opportunities for new links to be created," says Mal Walker, program director.

Leading practitioners, professionals, experts and academics working in supply chain and logistics are invited to share their stories and the critical links they have identified in their organisations or industries in the form of a case study or extended interactive session.

Paper submissions will be selected in the following special-interest information streams:

•       Multi-modal transport: air/sea/rail/road
•       Sustainable supply chains: remanufacturing, recycling and reverse logistics
•       Distribution centres: management, planning and design
•       Human factors: ethics and developing supply chain talent
•       Operations planning
•       Third-party insourcing/outsourcing
•       Network planning and optimisation
•       Global supply chains: agile models
•       Leading-edge technology: IT, eBusiness, lean
•       Procurement strategies: new forms of flexibility

The deadline for conference paper submissions is 1 October 2012.
