President's message

Dear IIE Computer & Information Systems (CIS) Division members,
John Jung-Woon YooThis year was the record-breaking year for our CIS division in terms of both the number of presentations and the number of sessions in Industrial & Systems Engineering Research Conference (ISERC). There were 65 presentations in 19 sessions in this year. For your reference, in 2005 there had been 28 presentations in eight sessions. I strongly believe that this significant growth in 10 years is attributed to collaborative, cooperative efforts made by all CIS members in CIS division activities.
