Proposals sought for inaugural INFORMS Security Conference

INFORMS is requesting proposals to organize the initial INFORMS Security Conference. In a continuing effort to promote the development and use of operations research and analytics in the government sector, INFORMS aims to have the conference bring together researchers and practitioners to ensure security in not only government, but industrial and personal activities as well.

Proposals can include suggestions for: program chairs; conference location; conference theme or focus; keynote speakers; special events and activities; sponsorship and networking opportunities; and more.

Proposals should be sent to Shelley Renn (srenn@informs.org), director of Meetings, or Ron Askin (ron.askin@asu.edu), VP of Meetings.
