Conference Announcement


New Dates announced: Conference held on June 7-10, 2022, Bologna.


Dear Friends and Colleagues,

After two long and marking years, the Scientific Committee is pleased to announce that the 6th International Food and Wine Supply Chain Conference (FWSCC2020) will take place in the wonderful city of Bologna, Italy, organized by the FWSC Council and in collaboration with the Department of Agricultural and Food Sciences.

This Conference welcomes high-quality Research Contributions that investigate interdisciplinary challengesAgricultural EngineeringPrecise and Sustainable AgricultureAgro-Environmental and Food MicrobiologyFood SafetyAgricultural and food economicsFood Science and TechnologyPackaging Science, business models and Food Policy, Decision-Support Systems (DSSs) for Sustainable Food Supply Chains, Human Nutrition Well-being, and Health.


All papers with focus on Food Transportation, Logistics and Operations management accepted and presented by registered authors at the 6th FWSCC 2022 will be published (on authors' choice) as a dedicated issue of Transportation Research Procedia Journal (ELS-TRPRO) (Elsevier Journal indexed in Scopus; ISSN: 2352-1465)

Special Issues

(Submissions already opened)

A large number of papers will be selected for post-conference publication of extended/revised versions in the supporting Journals. The complete list of the supporting Journals and Special Issues will be released soon (Details and CFP at 


FWSCC2022 Conference

The 6th International Conference on Food and Wine Supply Chain debates the latest advances on the design and planning of sustainable food supply chains from a multidisciplinary and systemic food ecosystem perspective involving production and transportation from growers to consumers. It aims to better understand food ecosystems according to a holistic approach, by highlighting the horizontal connections among the supply chain operations embracing different fields of research. Interactions between the food ecosystems and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) like providing affordable carbon-neutral food, greening transportation and production, saving energy and natural sources will be central.

Within such a complex and boundless ecosystem, quantitative models and decision-support systems (DSSs) intended for designing, prototyping, engineering, and tracking novel food products and operations, developing designer foods, eco-friendly and reusable packaging, as well as adopting sustainable processing, warehousing and transportation 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 interdisciplinary literature on food ecosystem, and addresses the synergies underlying the design, planning, management, and optimization of food industries and supply chains.

Contributions that bridge disciplines (i.e. Industrial Systems EngineeringLogistics and Transportation ScienceFood Science and Technology, Packaging Science, Decision Science, Supply Chain Management, Energy Engineering) and foster collaborations for decision-making in FSCs are particularly encouraged. Furthermore, single-topic articles on novel food products, and emerging food production technologies will find room in parallel sessions or as posters.


The FWSCC will consist of Keynote talks, Parallel Sessions of oral presentations, Plenary Sessions, and Industrial Workshops, on the applications and theory of Agricultural Science and EngineeringFood Processing, Food Safety and Risk Management, Food Packaging, Food Operations and Logistics, Food Consumers behavior, Nutrition and Health.

Since the campaigns to vaccinate against COVID-19 are ongoing worldwide, we retain it is time to no longer postpone and organize our meeting as hybrid event, comprising both an in-person and a virtual Conference.

We look forward to seeing you at the FWSCC2022 in Bologna (June 7-10, 2022).

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.

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

With Kind Regards

Riccardo Accorsi, Ph.D.
