COE Team Awarded at the 11th Annual SCOPE Conference (Calgary)

The COE participated in the 2008 Western Canada Student Conference on Operations and Excellence (SCOPE) in Calgary, Alberta on April 11th to 12th. COE Project Advisor Mehmet Ayvaci and UBC MM in OR graduates Jiamei Liu and Lin He attended the case competition.

The conference allowed undergrad and graduate students conducting field studies in operations research to showcase their research, build their professional networks, and expand their knowledge of the OR field. Each student or team of students presented their research to a panel of judges. In this year’s competition, there were 16 teams competing from the University of Alberta, the University of Calgary and the University of British Columbia.

Both of our attending students presented their industry projects as follows:

  • Lin He - “Preventing Workplace Incidents”
  • Jiamei Liu - “Forecasting Semiconductor Demand”

Jiamei Liu’s presentation won the Best Presentation Award! On behalf of the COE faculty, staff and students, we would like to congratulate Jiamei on this well-deserved honour. Both presentations received very good feedback from the audience. The COE is proud to be represented by its members in the conference.
