u  Forum

This conference also included forum focusing on “Development on Management Science in Engineering 2020” on Aug. 2.

At the forum, Prof. Ziqiang Zeng(China) presented a Scientific journal report announcement entitled "Development on Management Science in Engineering 2020--Perspectives from Scientific Journal Report". The report mainly covers that a three-dimensional evaluation framework from the perspective of influence factors, including article citations, academic community, and publishing platform is developed to realize the goal of making an objective and comprehensive evaluation for the academic performance of the journal. The changes and trends of the number of journals in different engineering domains are analyzed based on the data from 2017 to 2020.

Then, experts in various fields offer their opinions and promote topics about their areas of interest for discussion.

Finally, questions from the audience were discussed by all the editors.

All talks were well discussed in detail with workshop attendees, who came from China, the USA, Spain, Moldova and so on.



u  Parallel Sessions

This conference included 4 parallel sessions, wherein scholars from Sichuan University and other international institutes contribute their 10-15 minutes presentations. All sessions were well attended with periods of intensive after presentation exchanges, an indication of the scientific interest in the various developments and trends of big data, enterprise innovation, supply chains, information technology and uncertainty in the management science and engineering management sector.
