The 4th International Conference on Engineering, Project, and Production Management
(EPPM 2013)

October 23-25, 2013
The Sukosol, Bangkok, Thailand

The 4th International Conference on Engineering, Project, and Production Management (EPPM 2013) will be held during October 23 - 25, 2013 in Bangkok, Thailand. Its predecessors were held in Taiwan, R.O.C. in 2010, Singapore in 2011, and United Kingdom in 2012. The EPPM 2013 will be organized by Sirindhorn International Institute of Technology (SIIT), Thammasat University, Thailand. This conference aims to provide a forum for international researchers and practitioners to meet and share current issues and problems related to engineering, project, and production management in both manufacturing and service environments. It also provides an international platform for the discussion of innovative research and practice, and creative cross-breeding of the multidisciplinary fields of engineering and management. Researchers, academicians, practitioners, and students can present and discuss current and emerging research issues, new findings and developments, and industrial problems. Additionally, EPPM 2013 will provide a great opportunity for research and industrial networking.

The conference venue is the Sukosol, a luxurious hotel ideally located in the heart of Bangkok. It can be conveniently reached from the Suvarnabhumi International Airport via the Airport Rail Link, airport limousine and public taxi services. The Sukosol is within the walking distance to the Phaya-Thai Station of the BTS Skytrain, which is two stops from popular downtown shopping malls, namely, Siam Square, Central World, Paragon, and MBK. A short journey from the hotel will also bring guests to the city's most magnificent temples, museums, markets, and restaurants.
