Alliances between universities and industries are growing because of increasing demand for innovation, rising global competitiveness, and declining government support for research and development. However, a big majority of such partnerships do not succeed and terminate with little or no benefits to either party. This conference will shed light on industrial engineering techniques and practices that may help organizations and universities in their quest to build successful university – industry alliances.
The Global Joint Conference on Industrial Engineering and Its Application Areas (GJCIE) 2016 is composed of three co-located conferences: the 1st Global Conference on Industrial Engineering (GCIE), the 3rd Global Conference on Engineering and Technology Management (GCETM), and the 2nd Global Conference on Healthcare Systems Engineering and Management (GCHSEM). The GGJCIE 2016 will be an internationally renowned forum for researchers, practitioners, and educators to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, experiences, and challenges in the field of industrial engineering. It will bring together experts from academia and industry to exchange the latest research results and trends, and their practical applications in the aforementioned areas of industrial engineering. This will be accomplished through the following three modes of communication: keynote presentations, parallel sessions, and poster sessions.
The GJCIE 2016 will take place from July 14th to July 15th at the Elite World Istanbul Hotel in Istanbul, Turkey. Istanbul is the only city in the world built on two continents. Its rich history has given it a multitude of museums, historical buildings and mosques, Byzantine churches and Roman aqueducts. This exciting venue is alive with the hustle and bustle of business and trade which for centuries has made it a vital trading hub between east and west. Straddling Europe and Asia, Istanbul is the largest and most monumental city in Turkey. It is a melting pot of cultures which mix harmoniously on both sides of a city that is split geographically by the Bosphorus strait. This bustling city is home to over 13 million people and from 14 to 15 July 2016 will also be home to the GJCIE 2016.
