Dear conference participants,

Welcome to the website of the 5th Meeting of the EURO Group on Retail Operations, organized by KUMPEM, Koç University.

KUMPEM – KU Retail Research Forum aims to foster and strengthen research-industry collaboration in Turkey since 1999 and is sponsored by Migros, the pioneering supermarket chain in Turkey and Koç University.

The 5th meeting of EWG-Retail will take place in 6-7 May 2020 at Koç University Founders Lounge, located at Sarıyer Campus–Istanbul, on the hills of beautiful Bosphorus. This year participating speakers will also be welcomed to the 10th KUMPEM Retail Conference Industry Day at Conrad Istanbul Hotel on May 8th, if they choose to register (Please read details below).

For this occasion, we would like to provide more time to strengthen the interactions among participants, and to foster joint research projects within the group.
