Want the perfect reason to come to Miami in February? What about the 2012 INFORMS Optimization Society Conference? The conference, whose theme is “Optimization and Analytics: New Frontiers in Theory and Practice”, will be hosted by the University of Miami School of Business Administration from Friday, February 24 to Sunday, February 26 on its beautiful campus in Coral Gables, Florida. We are very fortunate to have many of the top researchers in Optimization and Analytics as members of our advisory and program committees. I expect the final conference program to be full of high-quality talks.
This is my first time as a member of an organizing committee and I’m happy to say that, despite all the work, it’s been a lot of fun!
Here’s a link to the call for abstracts and posters (we’re already accepting submissions). For more information, including important dates, registration rates, plenary speakers, and hotel reservations, visit the conference web site at http://bus.miami.edu/ios, or send me an e-mail (tallys at miami dot edu). I hope to see you all here!
