Thanks to the ConAm Group of Companies, we are pleased to announce the Student Paper Competition 2014. The ConAm Group of Companies is a builder and developer of residential projects throughout the United States, and is sponsoring a student competition for papers and projects demonstrating or describing the use of industrial engineering tools in a construction environment.

The papers should demonstrate or describe the use of techniques such as lean construction methods, green technology/sustainability, quality management, Six Sigma, simulation, optimization, automation and basic IE tools/applications. Both undergraduate and graduate students are invited to submit papers.

The winner will receive a cash gift and funding for air/hotel/miscellaneous travel expenses with a total value of $2,500. The winning paper will be presented at the IIE Annual Conference and Expo 2014 in Montreal, Canada.

Papers will be due March 7, and the winner will be notified by March 28. Papers must be no more than 10 pages in length and follow the requirements summarized in the competition guidelines.
