Professor Chi-Hyuck Jun Appointed as President of APIEMS 

 

 

Professor Chi-Hyuck Jun in the Department of Industrial and Management Engineering was appointed as the next president of APIEMS and an APIEMS fellow at the 15th APIEMS (Asia-Pacific Industrial Engineering and Management Systems) conference which was held in Jeju during October 12-15, 2014. Professor Jun was also the General Chair of this year’s APIEMS conference. 

Professor Jun will serve as President of APIEMS for 2017 and 2018. The APIEMS fellowship is given to outstanding leaders in the profession who have made regional and international contributions to industrial engineering and management. The nomination is made through the recommendation of APIEMS board members. 

APIEMS was initiated from two conferences held in 1998: the China-Japan Joint Conference on Industrial Engineering and Management in Beijing, China and the Korea-Japan Joint Conference on Industrial Engineering and Management in Daejeon, South Korea. Excellent results were produced and the two conferences merged to form a single conference in 1999 when the 2nd APIEMS conference was held in Kanazawa, Japan. 

Since then, APIEMS has rapidly emerged as an important forum for the exchange of ideas and information about the latest developments in the field of industrial engineering and management systems among professionals in the Asia-Pacific region. APIEMS conferences serve as a forum for the exchange of ideas and facilitate collaboration among participants from different countries, providing the much needed exposure to new research efforts and findings.
