Call for Smart papers

Australia’s leading logistics and supply chain event Smart 2009 Conference is seeking speakers to address innovation and sustainability.

Under the theme: Bridging the gap with innovation and new business strategy, the conference will deliberate on strategies to solve current and future supply chain challenges.

“Smart 2009 will provide timely advice for those keen to find new and innovative ways to sustain and grow their business while addressing these challenges in an uncertain global and domestic climate,” said Warwick Hughes, chairman of Smart 2009 Organising Committee.


Mr Hughes said the committee is currently seeking speakers who can address key areas including:

•         Energy Security & Sustainability – including the growing gap between demand and supply of transport fuels, and the repercussions of targeted greenhouse gas emission levels.

•         Infrastructure – such as the gaps between actual and required investment levels, and the need for new infrastructure to support new energy paradigms.

•         The Human Factor – the current and growing skills crisis, and injury levels versus ‘zero targets’ in workplace safety.

•         Connected Supply Chains – specifically, the opportunities offered by connecting geographically dispersed global supply chains, and business strategies, technologies and systems needed to achieve and support future supply chain potential.

The conference will take place from 10-11 June 2009 at Sydney Convention & Exhibition Centre.

Those interested in speaking at Smart 2009 can lodge their application to present a paper at or contact the Smart 2009 Secretariat on (02) 9223 9366, email
