Looking forward to the INFORMS conference in Houston

Stefan Karisch

Stefan Karisch

Another INFORMS Annual Meeting is fast approaching, set for Oct. 22-25 in Houston. It promises to be a great venue to meet other practitioners.

The program is shaping up to be very interesting. Several plenary and keynote presentations will be given by industry representatives, and there will be a number of practice-oriented sessions spanning a diverse set of application areas. The conference also offers plenty of networking opportunities, which I have found particularly valuable.

The Analytics Society will hold its business meeting on Monday, Oct. 23 from 6-7 p.m., when we will review the accomplishments over the last year, introduce the newly elected officers and preview the year ahead.

The Analytics Society officers and I are looking forward to seeing you in Houston.

– Stefan Karisch (stefan.e.karisch@boeing.com), president, Analytics Society of INFORMS
