Back in September I wrote about the Fourth INFORMS Optimization Society Conference that’s taking place on the University of Miami campus, February 24-26, 2012. Now I’m writing again to remind all of you that the early registration deadline is approaching fast: it’s December 15. Make sure to take advantage of the discount! Moreover, keep in mind that the abstract/poster submission deadline is also close by: January 6, 2012.
If you haven’t done so yet, make sure to check out the conference web site: http://bus.miami.edu/ios. The conference is shaping up to be a great event and an amazing opportunity to network with — and present your work to — some of the best minds in the optimization community from all over the world. Even if your work is still in progress, consider submitting an abstract to our poster session; it’s an opportunity to get additional feedback on what you’re doing. In addition, we have an exceptional line-up of plenary and semi-plenary speakers.
Finally, since I’ve been building a reputation as someone who likes to talk about food (e.g. here, here, here, here, and here), keep this in mind: your registration fee includes 3 breakfasts, 3 lunches, 2 receptions, and 6 coffee breaks! It doesn’t get any better than this.
So, recapitulating, make sure to register before December 15, and send your abstract/poster in by January 6!
I hope to see you all here in Miami!
