The meetings are organised by AIRL (the International Association for Logistics Research), whose membership is comprised of university researchers, corporate practitioners and public sector institutions interested by research in the fields of logistics and supply chain management. AIRL is the world’s largest French-speaking association with the mission of promoting research projects and diffusing their results.

Since 1995, RIRL has monitored logistics and supply chain management research in terms of methodological aspects and associated workplace experimentation. This is a headline event where interested professionals have the opportunity to share their experiences during both full conference sessions and smaller workshops.

"RIRL 2010", the Conference’s eighth biennial meeting, is a magnet for researchers throughout the discipline as well as beyond.

Authors should send a 500 to 1,000 word French or English-language abstract to rirl2010@bem.edu by 6 November 2009. This abstract should contain research objectives, methodology and expected outcomes, as well as key words.

The Scientific Committee will then select which communications are to be presented at the Conference.

Authors will be notified of their paper’s acceptance by 20 November 2009.

The final version of the papers that have been selected must be submitted by 5 March 2010.

The best communications will be published in the following reviews "Logistique & Management" and "Supply Chain Forum: An International Journal".
