Natural and man-made disasters swept through various parts of the world and received much attention over the past decade. The Humanitarian Logistics Conference will focus on various topics relevant to planning, preparing, and responding to disasters, as well as recovery and mitigation. The main objectives of the conference are to articulate the opportunities and challenges in preparing and responding to disasters, both from a humanitarian and a corporate/economic perspective, to identify important research issues, to create academic awareness for the research opportunities and to establish priorities for non-government organizations (NGOs), corporations, and the government in terms of their strategies, policies, and investments.
