About the Symposium

The International students’ symposium on logistics and international business (ISSLIB 2019) has become a distinguished event. ISSLIB was developed in a close cooperation of the University of Maribor in Celje (Slovenia) as well as the HIWL (University of Supply Chain Management and International Business in Bremen) and the University of the BVL (German Logistics Association). Every year the location of the event changes so that there is a possibility to experience different universities, companies, cities and countries. This years’ symposium will be organized by two Faculties from the Tomas Bata University – Faculty of Logistics and Crisis Management and Faculty of Management and Economics.

We believe that this event gives a unique opportunity to students as well as professors to share their knowledge and research with their peers and to establish international connections, which will last a lifetime.

Through lectures of distinguished professors from different universities and presentations of students’ research participants gain an insight into the trends and contemporary aspects of international business and logistics. In addition, excursions to companies will allow participants to see the practical aspects of business and logistics.

Naturally, this four day event will also give participants enough informal opportunities for networking and getting to know other cultures.

Students attending the symposium should prepare papers about their research, either practical or theoretical. The papers will be published electronically as symposium proceedings. A template for papers and presentations will be available on the symposium website. Registration to the symposium will also be available on the website, both students and attending professors should register.

The symposium will take place at the Faculty of Logistics and Crisis Management, Tomas Bata University in Zlin. Participation at the symposium is free of charge; however accommodation and meals should be arranged and paid for by the participants. Of course we can suggest the best accommodation.

Scope and Focus

Today, cities allocate about 50 % of world’s population, and it is expected that this number will increase up to 80 % by 2050. This is way the concept and of creating mart cities is growing rapidly.  The accelerated development of technology, the phenomenon of globalization and the concern for sustainable and green development in recent years has contributed to the idea of building smart cities around the world, that will contribute to the better lives of their citizens.
Despite the countless benefits of smart city projects, many challenges remain when it comes to deployment of it.
The scope of this years’ International Students’ Symposium will address the challenges of smart cities. The focus is on mobility, transport and logistics, what technologies, applications and business models will drive the future in smart cities.

Getting there

Uherské Hradiště is a town in the Moravia, (Zlín Region) of the Czech Republic, located 23 km (14 mi) southwest of Zlín on the Morava River.

There are three railway companies providing transport between Prague and Uherske Hradiste. These are Ceske Drahy, RegioJet and LeoExpress. RegioJet and LeoExpress are private carriers and generally provide a better service on this line, but only stop in the nearby railway hub of Stare Mesto, from where one needs to take a bus or a taxi to reach Uherske Hradiste. The whole journey should take about 3 hours and not cost more than roughly 300 CZK one-way.
Budapest, Vienna and Bratislava are in the vicinity of Uherske Hradiste.
When travelling from Brno, bus is the cheapest and quickest option (about 1 hour).
There is an airport in the nearby Kunovice, but there are currently no scheduled flights operating out or to this airport.
