To help advance the industry's understanding of "connective technologies"—RFID, wireless, bar codes, global positioning systems—and how they've affected logistics, the Council of Logistics Management recently issued a formal call for papers. Once it has reviewed the submissions, the group plans to publish the information in various venues, giving members an easy way to exchange ideas and information.
CLM is looking for submissions in three categories:
The case studies and vision white papers will be reviewed by the Connective Technology Editorial Review Board. Those approved will be published on the members-only section of CLM's Web site. Academic research paper submissions and some of the other papers will be published in the journal.
To submit a paper, send a cover letter and submission(s) in MS Word on disk/CD and in a hard copy to: Connective Technology Call for Papers; Attn. Research Coordinator; Council of Logistics Management; 2805 Butterfield Road, Suite 200; Oak Brook, IL 60523-1170.
The call for papers is the start of what CLM intends to be a continuing process. To learn more about this project, please call Jessica D'Amico, research coordinator for CLM, at (630) 645-3460 or send e-mail to email@example.com.
