Conference Postponement Announcement

New Dates announced: Conference postponed to 2022.

 

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

The Scientific Committee of the 6th International Food and Wine Supply Chain Conference (FWSCC2020) together with the FWSC Council would like to wish you the very best during these challenging times. Apologies for my long silence.

Albeit the campaigns to vaccinate against COVID-19 have begun, the spread of the Pandemic continues and the situation is still uncertain. In light of this, we have decided to further postpone the Conference longing for a more prudent and safe time.

Again, we rejected the idea of setting an online Virtual Conference, as we intend the FWSCC as a sharing network of Colleagues and Friends and the opportunity for a periodical meeting, hugely more fruitful than any streaming session. 

We appreciate your understanding and support of our organization. We look forward to seeing you at the FWSC Conference in Bologna (probably within the first semester of 2022). Updates and future announcements will be given in due course.

Lastly, I encourage all of you to consider submitting your article to the still open Special Issues supporting the Conference (Details and CFP at https://eventi.unibo.it/6th-internationalconferencefoodsupplychain-bologna2020/special-issues). Due dates are quite close.

 

For any doubt or detail about the Conference and the (present and future) Special Issues do not hesitate to contact me.


With Kind Regards

Riccardo Accorsi, Ph.D.

Conference Chairman

 

 

FWSCC2022 Conference

The 6th International Conference on Food and Wine Supply Chain addresses the topic of design and planning of sustainable food supply chains from a multidisciplinary and systemic food ecosystem perspective involving all stages from growers to consumers. It aims to better understand food ecosystems according to a holistic approach, by highlighing the horizontal connections among the supply chain stages and the associated interdisciplinary fields of research. Interactions between the food ecosystems and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) like providing affordable food, mitigating climate change, greening the sector, saving energy and preserving the environment will be central.

Within such a complex and boundless ecosystem, quantitative models and methods intended towards designing, prototyping, engineering and monitoring of novel food products and processes, developing designer foods, eco-friendly food package, as well as adopting sustainable harvesting and farming, processing, storage and distribution technologies and strategies are vital in order to address to the threefold pillar of sustainability (i.e. environmental, social and economic).

The Conference builds upon the state-of-the-art of the interdisciplinary literature on food ecosystem, and addresses the trade-offs and synergies underlying the design, planning, management and optimisation of food industries and systems.

Contributions which bridge disciplines (i.e. Industrial Systems Engineering, Food Science, Packaging Science, Decision Science, Logistics and Facility Management, Supply Chain Management, Agricultural Science and Land-use Planning, Energy Engineering) and foster collaborations for decision-making between different stages of the food supply chain are particularly encouraged. Furthermore, single discipline or specific studies on food products, processes, and systems, technologies or design/planning methodologies will find room in parallel sessions or as posters.
