International Students Symposium
on Logistics and International Business

12 - 16 September, 2022

Cracow, Poland

The idea behind the Symposium

The basic idea of the student symposium is to bring together students of logistics and international business from different countries for the exchange of ideas, concepts and experiences.

The International students’ symposium on logistics and international business (ISSLIB) has become a distinguished event.

This years’ symposium will take place in Cracow. Our host is the

Mechanical Engineering of the Cracow University of Technology.

Title of the Symposium

Digital technologies for logistics and supply chain

The papers will be published in the Scientific Journal Systemy Wspomagania w Inżynierii Produkcji.

Scope

We’re all aware that the Digital Transformation of Logistics & Supply chains is inevitable.

The “new normal” is showing us, that business needs to be way more efficient and flexible.

Which technologies will run the future of logistics & supply chain. Are the Internet of Things, big data, cloud computing, blockchain, 3D printer, robotization, artificial intelligence, machine learning, augmented reality and virtual space only new buzz words or will they run the industry?

We are inviting students to address these issues, prepare the paper and present it at the symposium.

Organizing committee

Augustyn Lorenc, Cracow University of Technology, Poland – Chairman of the committee

Małgorzata Kuźnar, Cracow University of Technology, Poland

Aleksandra Lisowska, Cracow University of Technology, Poland

Matevž Obrecht, University of Maribor, Slovenia

Vid Mlejnik, University of Maribor, Slovenia

Manca Zrinski, University of Maribor, Slovenia

 

Paper publication

The papers after positive reviews will be published in one of the Journal (regarding the scope of the Journal and the topic of the paper):

  • Logistic and Transport (ISSN 1734-2015), web page. “Logistic and Transport” is a scientific journal with over 10 years of tradition. It contains materials that are a result of research conducted by scientists from Poland and from abroad. In order to extend the number of readers since 2009 the journal has been published in English. The high quality of the journal is confirmed by the results of the assessment made by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education and other independent entities (e.g. Index Copernicus).
  • Systemy Wspomagania w Inżynierii Produkcji (ISSN 2391-9361), web page. The journal aims to develop theory and disseminate knowledge for developing and promoting innovative solutions of production engineering; exchanging experience between theoreticians and practitioners applying the methodology of production engineering in the industrial sector, including rendering services, and supporting sound decision making.

Information

about the abstract and paper preparation

Host city and venue

A former royal capital, crammed with history and splendour, Kraków is one of the most beautiful – and interesting – cities in Eastern Europe. It’s also a fantastic destination for food, drink, and many, many other activities. Read on for our overview of what to expect from your first trip to this great Polish city.

Kraków’s beauty is self-evident. Both the medieval old town and Wieliczka salt mines were added to the original UNESCO World Heritage List in 1978. There’s a thousand years of living history, much of it in remarkably good shape.
Poland’s pivotal role in 20th century European history is starkly represented by the former Nazi extermination camp Auschwitz-Birkenau, located 68km outside Kraków, and the excellent Schindler’s Factory museum, which tells the story of Kraków under the Nazi invasion and how industrialist Oskar Schindler helped save the lives of 1200 Jewish employees. In this century, Kraków has continued to develop first-class museums such as Rynek Underground, built beneath the main market square.

Kraków is famous for its beautiful Old Town and historic buildings. But this is just a small sample of what the city has to offer. There’s also wonderful food and drink, museums and galleries, cycling and other kinds of physical activity, as well as great shopping and open spaces. Here’s an exciting list of things to do in Kraków.
