Announcing the IISE Construction Division Student Paper Competition Results
Big congratulations to Sadegh Asgari of Columbia University and Ali Shafaat of Purdue University for winning the 2016 student paper competition with their paper "Simulating Construction Bidding Using Agent-Based Modeling!" These students will be presenting their winning paper at the Annual Conference in Anaheim, California, in May, and we look forward to hearing about their work. The award, sponsored by the ConAm Group, provides complimentary conference registration, a ticket to the conference awards banquet, and a cash prize.

Also to be congratulated are the second and third place winners:

  • Second place: Becca Keller, "Application of Agile Manufacturing in the Large-Scale Construction Industry" (Milwaukee School of Engineering)
  • Third place: Heta Lawrence, "Improving Strength of Pervious Concrete" (University of Washington)

We salute all of the competition entrants for their hard work and interest in construction in Industrial Engineering.

IIE Annual Conference and Expo Construction Research Track - ISERC 2016 

This year, our track looks forward to a high-quality program of research presentations at the IIE Annual Conference and Expo, May 21-24 in Anaheim, California.

In the first round of submission, nine abstracts were received, and although paper submission was optional, three authors submitted full papers in the second round. At this year's conference, construction research track will host two sessions with three unique presentations in each:

  • Construction Management
  • Sustainable Construction

Looking forward to seeing you there.

About the Division

IISE's Construction Division brings together members who are involved in all facets of the construction industry, such as design, value engineering, project management, research, safety and ergonomics. With these combined resources, we hope to bring to the construction industry a rich supply of knowledge, innovation and experience that can have the kind of positive impact that IEs have long used to bring the manufacturing and service industries to superlative levels of performance.
