1st International Conference on Quality and Management Sciences 2021

(1st ICQMSc 2021)

13-15 September 2021, online


Dear Colleagues,

it is our honor and great pleasure to invite you to the 1st International Conference on Quality and Management Sciences 2021 (1st ICQMSc 2021) to be held online from 13 to 15 September 2021 in Poznań. The conference is organized by Institute of Quality Science, formerly Faculty of Commodity Science, at Poznań University of Economics and Business, and it is continuation of International Commodity Science Conference (IComSC), which last, fifteenth edition, was held in Dolsk, in 2019. The conference will be held under the honorary patronage of the HM Rector of PUEB prof. Maciej Żukowski.

We believe that the conference will be a forum for exchanging knowledge and ideas on advances in all areas of quality, commodity and management sciences and will provide opportunity for establishing and strengthening scientific collaboration between specialists in these fields. The special session during the conference will be dedicated to prof. Zenon Foltynowicz on the occasion of his retirement and in recognition of his achievements in quality (commodity) science.

Because of uncertainty due to the COVID-19 global pandemic we plan the online meeting. However, we will monitor the changing situation with the pandemic and, if possible, we will propose a hybrid form with the possibility of online or on-site participation. We will provide information about the possibility to participate on-site by June 15.

We cordially invite you to participate in the conference.

Yours faithfully,

Ewa Sikorska, Director of the Institute of Quality Science, PUEB
