We hereby invite you to the 8th Scandinavian Conference in Industrial Engineering and Management on the 16th November 2020. 

Due to the COVID-19 situation and the connected restrictions, the 8th Scandinavian Conference in Industrial Engineering and Management will be organized virtually on the 16th of November 2020. The theme of the conference is "Technology for People". The conference primarily targets researchers, teachers and PhD students within the area of Industrial Engineering and Management to present, discuss and share issues of common interest in research. 

The morning of the 16th of November will be dedicated to PhD students in form of a PhD workshop corresponding to 3 ECTS. It will feature presentations by PhD students, who have submitted a research paper, proposal or plan. The aim of the workshop is to support doctoral students in their actual thesis work. The PhD students will receive feedback from senior members of the scientific community as well as the audience listening to their presentations. When participating in the PhD workshop one also need to prepare feedback for another PhD student. 

Furthermore, the conference day includes presentations by keynote speakers from industry and academia. In the afternoon, sessions will be held in parallel sessions covering research, teaching and carrier topics. The sessions are in intended to provide a forum for researchers in industrial engineering and management (IEM) to discuss and exchange positions on current and emergent IEM topics. Sessions attendants will exchange ideas and experiences, establish common ground in research areas or practical problems, and hopefully identify new oppurtunities for collaboration and directions for future activity. Please notice, we invite proposals for the sessions. Furthermore, if you feel like giving a presentation, do not hesitate to let us know. 

We are looking forward to seeing you virtually. And we hope to host you at DTU next year for the ScAIEM conference and meet you all!

Associate Professor Kathrin Kirchner, Associate Professor and Head of Research Group (Implementation and Performance Management) Christine Ipsen and the Board of ScAIEM.
