Submission: (deadline 1st October)


Session title: Innovative applications of data envelopment analysis
Session organizer: Dr Panagiotis D. Zervopoulos, Department of Management, University of Sharjah, United Arab Emirates


Session details: The emphasis of this session is on the application of data envelopment analysis (DEA) to real-world cases aiming to shed light on operational/managerial perspectives. DEA is a widely used technique for measuring the relative performance of units and benchmarking. Since its inception (1978), thousands of theoretical and empirical works have been published. DEA-based empirical studies provide insightful managerial implications and facilitate decision making. This session welcomes real-world DEA-based empirical studies from a wide range of areas, such as banking, finance, health care, government, education, energy, environment, and tourism. A particular aim of this session is to attract empirical studies from the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries and other geographical locations to ensure the broadest possible range of contributions. Cross-country applications also lie within the scope of this session
