Systems Engineering Department & KFUPM IEOM Chapter jointly present a Seminar on


"The Modern Industrial Engineering and Operations Research"



Date: Tuesday, 29th Oct, 2019

Time:  05:30 pm

Location: Building 76, Room 1238



Dr. Ismail Almaraj

Assistant Professor

Systems Engineering Department

King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals



This seminar aims at providing the ISE students (both graduates and undergraduates) with the possibility to explore different modern topics in the industrial engineering and operations research fields. Throughout this talk, the speaker will go over some new research directions which include optimization under uncertainty using robust optimization, machine learning and data mining optimization, multi-criteria optimization and big data analytics. Such topics can provide meaningful solutions to many practical real-life problems. Along with this discussion he will also bring some challenging aspects in energy systems, supply chain, and healthcare applications. Finally, an open discussion will be held right away after the seminar to provide an ideal opportunity for students who want to pursue graduate studies.


Speaker Bio:

Dr. Ismail Almaraj is an assistant professor in systems engineering department at KFUPM, graduated with PhD degree from the school of Industrial and Systems Engineering at the university of Oklahoma. His publications and research interests focus on Optimization under Uncertainty, Multi-Criteria Optimization, Production Systems and Supply Chain, Healthcare, and Quality Engineering. He is also currently working on a project with the health science center at the university of Oklahoma in Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) using Robust Optimization. The objective is to choose beam angles and beamlet intensities that deliver enough radiation to kill all tumor cells, while avoiding healthy organs and tissue as much as possible.



All faculty, researchers and graduate students are invited to attend.
