IEOM has successfully organized international conferences in Dhaka (2010), Kuala Lumpur (2011), Istanbul (2012), Bali (2014), Dubai (2015), Orlando (2015), Detroit (2016), Kuala Lumpur (2016), Rabat (2017), Bristol, UK (2017), Bogota (2017), Bandung (2018), Paris (2018), Washington, DC (2018), Pretoria (2018), Bangkok (2019), Pilsen (2019), Riyadh (2019), Dubai (2020), Detroit (2020), Harare (2020), Singapore (2021) and Sao Paulo (2021). There are more than 140 IEOM Student Chapters and 30 professional chapters around the globe. The IEOM Society is organizing the Fourth European Conference on Industrial Engineering and Operations Management virtually via zoom due to the global pandemic during August 2-5, 2021. Host is the Faculty of Civil and Industrial Engineering, Sapienza - University of Rome, Italy.   

    The 4th European IEOM Conference aims at providing a platform for academics, researchers, scientists and practitioners to exchange ideas and to bridge the gap between the Industrial Engineering and Operations Management theory and its application in solving the most current problems and challenges faced by 21st century organizations. Hence, the conference is also expected to foster networking, collaboration and a joint effort among the conference participants to advance the theory and practice as well as to identify major trends in Industrial Engineering and Operations Management. Theme is "Road to Resilient Manufacturing and Logistics".
