IEOM Society International is a premier international platform and forum for academics, researchers, scientists and practitioners to exchange ideas and provide insights into the latest developments and advancements in the fields of Industrial Engineering and Operations Management. IEOM has successfully organized international conferences in Dhaka (2010), Kuala Lumpur (2011), Istanbul (2012), Bali (2014), Dubai (2015), Orlando (2015), Detroit (2016), Kuala Lumpur (2016), Rabat (2017), Bristol, UK (2017), Bogota (2017), Bandung (2018), Paris (2018), Washington DC (2018), Pretoria (2018), Bangkok (2019), Pilsen (2019), Toronto (2019), Riyadh (2019), Dubai (2020), Detroit (2020) and Harare (2020). There are more than 140 IEOM student chapters and 30 professional chapters around the globe.
Authors can submit full paper(s) or abstract(s) only. Authors must use the conference template to prepare papers or abstracts. All full papers will be subjected to double peer review. Accepted papers will be published in the Proceedings and indexed in SCOPUS. Attending the conference and presentation of the paper is required.
The 4th IEOM European International Conference aims at providing a platform for academics, researchers, scientists and practitioners to exchange ideas and bridge the gap between the Industrial Engineering and Operations Management theory and its application in solving the most current problems and challenges faced by 21st century organizations. Hence, the conference is also expected to foster networking, collaboration and a joint effort among the conference participants to advance the theory and practice as well as to identify major trends in Industrial Engineering and Operations Management.
