WELCOME

Welcome to 2019 POMS International Conference in China.

As an influential international organization, POMS (Production and Operations Management Society) has developed rapidly in recent years. Chinese scholars have achieved academic breakthroughs in this field, combining with featured issues in production and operation in China. With the rapid development of China’s reform and opening-up, the typical issues in China’s manufacturing industry and service industry also bear the characteristics of the times. The proposition and solution for these issues will provide scientific and effective guidance, as well as reference, for the social and economic development of countries all around the world.

With the approval of POMS board in 2018, four leading Chinese business schools initiated the POMS International Conference in China, which is one of the regional POMS International Conference Series. The first conference will be hosted at Tianjin University, China on 21-24 June, 2019.

Tianjin University, founded in 1895 named as Peiyang University then, is the first institution of higher education in the modern history of China. The history of management education of Tianjin University dates back to early 1940s, and resumed in 1978 with China’s reform and opening-up. In 1984, the School of Management of Tianjin University was established, which is one of the first few management schools authorized by the Ministry of Education of China. In 2009, the College of Management and Economics was reconstituted during the faculty system reform of the university. Since its establishment, the school has long been among the leading management schools in China. In 2017, the school’s flagship Program of Management Science and Engineering, which is closely related with POMS fields, was selected into the list of First-Class Programs under the national “Double World-Class Project”.

The conference theme of this year is “Global Sharing and Data Analytics – Intelligent Production and Services for Human and Society”. We hope that the conference will provide a broader and more convenient platform for more Chinese scholars in the field of POMS to have academic exchange and communication, and provide abundant opportunities for scholars from all over the world to carry out diversified cooperation and exchange in China as well.

We look forward to meeting you all at the conference, and wish you a fruitful and inspiring experience.

Thank you.
