From 13th-14th November 2013, the Georg-August-Universität Göttingen will host the first International Conference on Resource Efficiency in Interorganizational Networks (ResEff)
Renewable raw materials are becoming increasingly important as an alternative resource base in industrial networks. Consequently, research for methods improving the efficient use of renewable resources in production processes with by-products is crucial. The aim is cascade utilization, thus the multiple utilization of a raw material before its conversion into energy.
The conference brings together interdisciplinary researchers developing strategies and solution concepts for efficient resource utilization. It is therefore a forum for scientific exchange both between experts as well as interdisciplinary groups. The following facets of the challenging topic of resource efficiency in Interorganizational networks are covered by the conference:
Track A: Materials and Technologies
Track B: Planning of Production and Value-added Networks for Renewable Resources
Track C: Governance, Coordination and Sale
The conference will include parallel sessions for presentation of papers in the fields of agricultural and forestry science, mathematical optimization, operations research, marketing, business informatics, production and logistics. Each track contains different sessions for expert talks. The interdisciplinary exchange is fostered through special talks and meetings, where all groups come together. A detailed description of the sessions can be found in the section Call for Papers.
