Special Issue Information
The advancement of new technologies such as big data, artificial intelligence, blockchain and the Internet of Things have opened new business opportunities. Meanwhile, complex, dynamic and uncertain environments pose new challenges. The balance between economic growth and environmental, social, and economic sustainability continues to be a major concern for society.
Information systems, intelligent systems and operations management are often the catalysts in addressing the challenges of sustainability. For example, intelligent routing and transportation have a direct impact on reducing carbon emissions. Closed-loop supply chains use reverse logistics to reuse end-of-life products and eliminate waste. Intelligent information systems combine big data and artificial intelligence techniques to rapidly adapt business operations to changing environments. Smart and connected communities continuously increase levels of prosperity, safety, security, accessibility and inclusivity, and overall quality of life.
This Special Issue on Intelligent Information Systems and Operations Management studies the inter-related roles of people, computing, information, and operations on sustainability. The subject areas include, but are not limited to, sustainable computing, smart homes and communities, sustainable supply chain management, green and sustained innovation, data science and artificial intelligence for sustainable development. The purpose of this Special Issue is to highlight the advancements and impact of information systems, intelligent systems, and operations management in face of changing environments.
We welcome submissions from any business and technology disciplines. We encourage researchers and practitioners to submit original research articles, case studies, reviews, critical perspectives, and viewpoint articles on topics including but not limited to:
- Sustainable computing;
- Use of intelligent information systems in enterprises;
- Smart and connected homes and communities;
- Intelligent transportation and routing;
- Closed-loop supply chain management;
- Resilience and security of information systems and supply chains;
- Green innovation and green manufacturing;
- Corporate social responsibility and sustainability;
- Life-cycle analysis of technologies and operations.
