    Dear Colleagues:

    The conference is a forum for exchanging knowledge and discoveries in the industrial and systems engineering research and practitioner communities. The 2019 IISE Annual Conference and Expo integrates research and industry under one conference.

    As track chairs of the Healthcare Systems Track, we would like to encourage you to contribute to the conference by submitting an abstract. Authors of accepted abstracts will be invited to present their work in a session with standard 20-minute presentations. Each session will be 80 minutes. Abstracts are welcomed for the Healthcare Systems Track in the following areas:

    Healthcare Operations Management

    Medical Decision Making

    Socio-Technical System Analysis

    Health Informatics/Data Analytics

    Healthcare Policy

    Medical Imaging/Signal Analysis

    Patient Care Quality and Safety

    Health Economics

    Lean and Six Sigma applied to Healthcare

    Healthcare Workflow and Process Modeling

    Health Logistics and Supply Chain

    In addition to the traditional abstract and presentation, the authors can submit a full paper.

    • Full Paper. Like previous years, full papers should contain results that are significant and have archival value to the industrial and systems engineering research and practitioner community. Full papers have a six-page limit and will undergo a double-blind peer review process with more rigor relative to the extended abstract. Accepted papers will be copyrighted and indexed in the conference proceedings. Two awards will be presented at the conference:
      • Healthcare Systems Track Best Paper Award
      • Healthcare Systems Track Student Best Paper Award

    Important deadlines for the conference are as follows (NOTE: THERE WILL BE NO EXTENSIONS)

    • Abstract Submission Deadline: November 9, 2018
    • Notification of Decision on Abstract: November 30, 2018
    • Submission of Full Papers (optional): January 18, 2019
    • Notification of Decision on Paper: February 19, 2019
    • Final Version of Full Paper Due: March 5, 2019

    If your abstract or full paper is accepted: (a) the presenting author must register for the conference (presentations without the presenting author registered for the conference will be withdrawn from the program and the proceedings); (b) the presenting author must attend and present the paper at the conference (presenting authors who fail to attend will have their paper withdrawn from the proceedings); and (c) all authors who submit a full paper are expected to review two full papers (as appropriate)  for fellow authors.

    There are also opportunities to organize invited sessions, panels, and tutorials. In addition to research and practitioner presentations, the annual conference offers many opportunities for attendees, including plant tours, networking, and keynote speakers.

    We look forward to seeing you in Orlando!

    If you have questions about the submission process, please contact Dr. Eduardo Pérez at .
