Conference News and Announcements
*Changed since the first Call for Papers sent
We cordially invite our IE professionals to the 29th Annual Conference of the Southern African Institute for Industrial Engineering, the premier conference of industrial engineering and related disciplines on the African continent. The conference gives industry, organisations, academics, and government the opportunity to showcase cutting edge practice and research. Delegates will benefit from networking opportunities to exchange ideas, to gain insight from peers and to engage with the most up to date thinking in industrial engineering.
Besides these personal growth opportunities, delegates will earn CPD points for attending the conference. Peer-reviewed papers will be published in the conference proceedings, earning publication credits. The best papers will be reviewed and published as full journal papers in a special edition of the ISI-listed South African Journal of Industrial Engineering, without further editing required.
Abstracts are invited for both the FULL PAPER and ABSTRACTS ONLY tracks. Academic and Industry submissions are encouraged for both tracks. Once the abstracts have been accepted, you have the option to submit a full paper. All papers will be subjected to a double-blind peer review process in accordance with the requirements of the Department of higher Education and Training. All abstracts should be submitted electronically on the following website: http://conferences.sun.ac.za/index.php/saiie29/

Call for Papers
“May you live in interesting times.”
~ Chinese curse
The effects of the 3rd Industrial Revolution are now inseparably entrenched into our everyday lives. Whilst some are still coming to grips with finding the ‘On’ switch, many have been thriving in this new technological era. With new capabilities and connectivity, the reach of technology is increasing exponentially. Currently, we are living on the cusp of what is widely known as the 4th Industrial Revolution. Critics may argue that this is merely the Third Revolution reaching maturity - advancement built on an enormous platform that has now been well established.
Recent emerging technologies in their application have, however, started having a significant impact in every industry imaginable. The critics must be silenced.
This technology unleashed would indeed be a revolution: a world of undirected chaos; circular logic and unrealised potential. At this critic transition and integration of technology, industry and society, Industrial Engineering professionals are intrinsically positioned to play a critical role in determining the ‘North Star’ of the 4th Industrial Revolution. Setting a course, being a strategic guide towards the optimal impact of the potential benefits as we enter the ‘interesting times’ that lay before us.
