When considering a puzzle, the first comforting truth that may occur is that puzzles do have solutions. As we move from a new normal to the ever perplexing next normal, all the pieces of life's puzzle are scattered like a kaleidoscope of colours. As curious thinkers, seeking out intrigue and solutions to our challenges we also recognize another truth as put by Noam Chomsky: "The willingness to be puzzled is a valuable trait to cultivate, from childhood to advanced inquiry".
With a Venn-diagram of overlapping puzzle pieces, the Southern African Institute for Industrial Engineering (SAIIE), the International Council on System Engineering (INCOSE) and the Graduate School of Technology Management, University of Pretoria(GSTM) are thrilled to invite you to the combined 2nd International Conference on Industrial Engineering, Systems Engineering and Engineering Management (ISEM2023) conference to cultivate your willingness to be puzzled! This prestigious event will be held at the Lord Charles Hotel, Somerset West, South Africa from 2 - 4 October 2023.
Take up the piece in front of you, and then the next! Find the pattern, connect it, and come share with your fellow puzzlers! Soon, and perhaps surprisingly so, you will find that you have become the piece that someone has needed. Take up your place, fill the empty spaces and be part of the solution to the bigger picture!
We encourage academia and industry, the puzzlers and puzzled - everyone who is enthusiastic about sharing and learning - to contribute to the conference with a full paper or presentation only track.
We look forward to accept papers related to industrial engineering, systems engineering and engineering management. Authors are invited to submit an abstract on one of the following tracks:
