ISERC Research Sessions

The Industrial and Systems Engineering Research Conference (ISERC), which is part of the IIE Annual Conference and Expo, is a forum for exchanging knowledge and discoveries in the industrial and systems engineering research community. Its purpose is to present scholarly work by researchers in academia or industry. Submissions of preliminary research results, works in progress and significant or final results are welcome.
