Welcome

Welcome to the 9th POMS-HK International Conference!

The POMS-HK International Conference is an annual event run by the POMS Hong Kong Chapter to provide a platform for both academics and practitioners to exchange ideas and explore opportunities for collaboration. This year the conference will be held at CUHK Business School, the Chinese University of Hong Kong. CUHK Business School is a leading business school and a pioneer in business education in Hong Kong. Established in Hong Kong in 1963, we are the first business school to offer BBA, MBA and Executive MBA programs in the region. The School has the largest business school alumni network in Hong Kong, with over 32,000 alumni worldwide.

The theme of this year’s conference is “OM and Analytics—the New Horizon.” With the proliferation and availability of data due to the rapid advancement of information technologies, the research of production and operations management (POM) and its applications have become increasingly data-driven. The use of Analytics, which aims to transform data into insight for making better decisions, opens new doors for POM researchers creating opportunities to pursue research which can make a significant impact on society.

We are excited that two world renowned scholars, Professor Teck Ho from National University of Singapore, and Professor Yinyu Ye from Stanford University, will deliver the keynote speeches at the conference.

We look forward to welcoming you to the conference, and wish you a fruitful and inspiring experience.

Thank you.
