Between the end of May and the beginning of June of this year, ANPAD held three divisional events: the XXIII Symposium of Production Management, Logistics and International Operations (SIMPOI), the XI ANPAD Organizational Studies Conference (EnEO), and the IX ANPAD Public Administration Conference (EnAPG). These events aimed to encourage the development of studies in the three academic divisions, considering the different subsystems, dimensions of analysis, and themes of interest.
The events received theoretical-empirical articles, theoretical essays, and technological articles, and SIMPOI hosted paper development workshops (PDW). The events were online and counted on the participation of researchers from all over Brazil and abroad. Some international lectures and panels were broadcast live on ANPAD’s Youtube channel.
