SUMMER SCHOOL FOR PhD STUDENTS - 11-12 July 2020 hosted on Zoom
Join us at our Annual Conference, this year for the first time hosted 'in the cloud.'
The themes of the Conference are:
Meet like-minded people.
Take advantage of this opportunity to learn about and sharpen your Lean thinking.
We will have great conversations, engage in a rich exchange of ideas, and have fun.
Get feedback on the paper you have submitted, in a double-blind peer review process.
Each accepted paper will:
All accepted papers will be made available online, open access:
All presentations will be pre-recorded by the presenters and we will organize them in sessions available for viewing online during the conference. If and how to make them available after the conference remains to be determined.
The technical conference this year is spread out over 5 days (not condensed in 2.5 days as we have done in the past) and the timing of presentations varies. Please see the AGENDA section of this web page for details.
Presenters should make themselves available to participate in a question-and-answer session about their presentation. The conference agenda shows the times of these live question-and-answer sessions.
Since we are in uncharted territory this year, we are rethinking how to run the conference. In a Lean fashion, we will aim to structure it using one-piece flow, avoiding parallel sessions as much as we can so that participants will be able to attend most if not all sessions of their interest. We have yet to figure out how we will handle sessions in small "bursts" with perhaps 100+ participants on zoom, but in a nutshell, here is roughly what we have in mind for a typical session:
In addition to typical sessions, we may also have some longer presentations and possible some Lean game rooms :)
Our plan for organizing these is as follows:
IRIS D. TOMMELEIN
Director, Project Production Systems Laboratory
Engineering and Project Management Program
Civil and Environmental Engineering Department
University of California, Berkeley, USA
Construction and Facilities Management Program
Brigham Young University
Provo, Utah, USA
Details on the summer school will be provided on a separate page.
