Articles needed for the IISE QCRE Division's Quarterly Newsletter

The division is publishing its quarterly newsletters and hereby soliciting news entries. This is a great opportunity to showcase interesting yet impactful researches, professional practices and educational efforts within the division. The solicited story will go into the following blocks in the newsletter: Research on the News, Practical Applications, and Education and Outreach.


  • Prepare your story write-up within 300 words (write it with plain language for very much diverse audiences);
  • Provide a nice picture together with the story;
  • Provide a link (if possible) to a detail version of the story (hyperlink to your project public webpage, etc.).

To ensure the completion of the newsletter within the timeframe, submitting your write-up by March 1, June 1, Sept. 1 and Dec. 1, respectively for each quarter of the year is strongly recommended. It would be great if you can let the newsletter editor know when you consider to submit one, so that arrangement can be made accordingly to include your story into the nearest issue of the newsletter.

Thanks in advance for the help, and together we will make our newsletter one of the best in IISE!
