2015 HOCM Track and Session Chairs

It’s that time of year again we would like to bring your attention to the forthcoming POMS conference taking place in Washington D.C. this year from May 8th -11th. The POMS College of Humanitarian Operations and Crisis Management (HOCM) would like to invite you to submit a paper on a topic relevant to HOCM for the upcoming annual POMS conference in Washington D. C., USA, on May 8-11, 2015.

Abstract and Paper Submissions for 2015 POMS

Due to some confusion there has been a change this year in the tracks from previous conferences. The POMS organisers have decided to remove the HOCM Track and instead have inserted the “Humanitarian and Not-for-Profit Operations” (HNPO) track.

2015 Best Paper Competition

The POMS College of Humanitarian Operations & Crisis Management invites all HOCM researchers to submit their papers to the College of HOCM Best Paper Award Competition. The award will be presented at the HOCM Business Meeting during the conference. The objective of the competition is to identify and honor outstanding papers in the fast-growing field of HOCM. Submissions will be judged based on their contribution towards the advancement of theory and practice of HOCM. All research methods, including field/case studies, empirical and analytical methods are encouraged.

Mission

The College of Humanitarian Operations and Crisis Management (HO & CM) is a set of members from the POMS community that seeks to create a focus group of researchers and practitioners to study how to manage operational systems under stress or severe resource constraints. A prime objective is to foster a creative environment among academics and practitioners to recognize how operations management plays a crucial role in dealing with the alleviation of human suffering under conditions triggered by cataclysmic acts of man and nature. Another major objective is to determine how operations management can provide early warning of impending events as well as reducing the severity of disasters and ensure sustainable transition of disaster relief efforts into longer term development. The HO & CM College plans to accomplish its objectives through avenues of academic as well as practice-oriented research. We intend to develop new pedagogical materials for teaching in this burgeoning field ...

Activities

The College will organize research tracks, mini conferences, panel discussions and workshops at the POMS conferences in an effort to connect the communities of academics and practitioners with a common goal of achieving effective and efficient humanitarian operations and management of crises. We plan to publish a special issue of the POMS journal dedicated to the evolving field of HO & CM.
