The books provide innovation applications and case studies that are drawn from multiple countries. The chapters in the books represent the best papers from the International Institute of Industrial Engineering (IIIE) Conference held in Istanbul in June 2013, sponsored by the IIE. The books showcase real-life case studies and applications that are set internationally, and allow students and practitioners to learn from best practices and also to study the growth of the discipline internationally.
About 700 papers have already been submitted to the International Industrial Engineering Conference (see www.iicistanbul.org). The editors will choose 60 of these papers that fit best with the theme of the books from the submitted conference papers. Authors will be given six weeks to re-submit the paper in the form of a book chapter in a form that will be useful to a reader for use as a case study or innovative application that is set internationally.
