INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON PROJECT MANAGEMENT
"ACHIEVING EXCELLENCE THROUGH PROJECT MANAGEMENT"
On behalf of the Organising Committee of the 2008 International Conference on Project Management (ICoPM 2008), it is my greatest pleasure to extend our warmest welcome and invitation to all academicians and practitioners around the world to the International Conference on Project Management that will be held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, in November 2008. This conference, jointly organised by the Faculty of Built Environment, University of Malaya (UM), Malaysia and the Institution of Engineers, Malaysia (IEM) will cover a wide range of project management issues.
The impact of globalization has resulted in a very competitive business environment that makes the fulfillment of customer/clients’ ever-sophisticated project needs most challenging. To help you cope with the increased complexity and needs of project management and its related areas, ICoPM 2008 will bring together national and international frontline thinkers, academics, executives, government and business officials, practitioners and leaders to present and discuss the pivotal role of Project Management in the achievement of excellence organizations.
The success or failure of project initiatives often depends on the successful implementation of project management techniques, knowledge and of course the human factors. It is our aim and hope that this conference would be able to provide a state-of-the-art information and knowledge in the challenging world of project management. Your contribution the conference through participation or presentation of papers/posters is much appreciated.
Thus, we look forward to welcoming you to Kuala Lumpur, a beautiful city with multicultural and ethnic groups and as a participant in ICoPM 2008.
