Introduction
There is allegedly a broad and multi‐faceted debate about the improvement and/or the optimality of the production and the development model that an organization should embrace in order to reach sustainable prosperity. This debate is relevant both at the micro-level (individual organizations or even business departments), as well as at the macro-level (e.g., regional clusters). There are however some common issues that are persistently rising: strategy and policy design, problem formulation, optimization, decision aid. The practice of operations research and information systems has largely contributed during the past to all the above issues providing compelling approaches and tools. It is the potential of the field that this special issue would like to exhibit, by highlighting paths that could result in valuable contributions for development and production.

Objective
Promoting the field of OR for development among industrial organizations and users of optimization.

Introduction
Today, supply-chain management faces a new wave of unprecedented technological opportunities. AI, IoT, advanced analytics and blockchain are some of the trends driving competitive advantage for supply chains. With the emergence of these disruptive supply chain technologies, supply chain manager must determine the implications of those trends to enable the future of supply chain and operations. The building blocks of industry 4.0—low-cost sensors and computing devices, seamless communication, and powerful data-analytics capabilities- are driving an explosion of innovation in the supply chain space. And ideas are migrating from other sectors. Blockchain technologies—the distributed-ledger systems that underpin crypto-currencies like bitcoin—are being mined for potential supply-chain applications.

Adopting a new supply-chain technology require huge investment, significant changes across the business. Advanced technologies allow companies to be smart, responsive, addressing specific problems and achieving rapid impact. These technologies also minimize risk, makes it easier to make the decision go with an innovative approach, and gives companies valuable know-how that they can apply to other technologies or different areas of their supply chain.

Objective
This special issue aims to attract research which shed light on what is the status of main advanced technology applications in SCM, what are the main disruptions and challenges in SCM because of AI, IoT, advanced analytics and blockchain adoption and what the future of these technology holds in SCM.

Recommended Topics
• Innovative technologies in supply chain.
• Digitalization of the supply chain
• Blockchain technology and Supply chain
• Influence of AI on supply chain management.
• Circular supply chain.
• Reverse and closed loop supply chains
• Managing risk through advanced technologies.
• Covid-19 and supply chain disruptions
• Supply chain efficiency and effectiveness
• E-supply chains

Submission Procedure
Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit papers for this special theme issue on Disruptions and Challenges in supply chain management on or before April 30th, 2021. All submissions must be original and may not be under review by another publication. INTERESTED AUTHORS SHOULD CONSULT THE JOURNAL’S GUIDELINES FOR MANUSCRIPT SUBMISSIONS at http://www.igi-global.com/publish/contributor-resources/before-you-write/.
