Taking Inventory Optimization to the Next Level


July 16, 2020
Webinar with panel discussion, in English, of interest for academics and professionals in the field of supply chain

 
 

Eric Wilson, Koen Cobbaert, Bram Desmet, Karl-Eric Devaux, Stefan de Kok, Nicolas Vandeput, Stefan Giesen

As academics develop more and more advanced models for inventory optimization, how can we bring those to practitioners?
Should we promote the use of simple models that are properly used and understood, or promote the use of more complex recent models?
Are the assumptions used in common inventory optimization models relevant for practitioners?
What skills should we teach to future supply chain planners?

How to Tell the Story of Western monasticism's Medieval Past in the 21st century


July 9, 2020
Interview and Q&A, in English

Steven Vanderputten, Ghent University

From the deserts of Egypt to the emergence of the great monastic orders, the story of late antique and medieval monasticism in the West used to seem straightforward. But today we see the story as far 'messier' – less linear, less unified, and more historicized.
Join our interview with Steven Vanderputten for an insightful discussion about how the research on European Medieval Monasticism has been transformed in recent years and what future narratives of medieval monasticism might look like. After a 15-minute interview, the floor was opened for questions from the audience.

De Gruyter’s University Press Library:  a Solution in a Complex E-Book Ecosystem


March 10, 2020
Webinar, in English, ER&L Conference Session

Becky Lisek, Michael Zeoli

This session will detail the complex ecosystem that university presses and libraries navigate in a daily effort to disseminate and sustainably support the creation of high-quality scholarly content. This complex ecosystem led to the creation of a 5-year pilot where complete front lists from select university presses were made available for purchase with unlimited usage, no DRM and perpetual rights to a controlled number of libraries. The results of this pilot and recommended way forward will be shared, with a group discussion on future next steps.
