The INFORMS 2015 Annual Conference will offer intriguing plenary and semi-plenary presentations; panel discussions; tutorials; and thousands of oral and poster presentations from leading academics, industry experts, students, and representatives of government agencies. The presentations survey the state-of-the-art of the Analytics movement, provide novel methodological advances, and open new avenues for application areas, such as data sciences, healthcare, energy and critical infrastructure, security, service systems, logistics, management, the environment, and more. You are invited to come to learn and share your expertise with other attendees, recruit your next employees or find your next job, or just further build your professional network and enjoy meeting new and old friends.
The 2015 INFORMS Annual Meeting in Philadelphia will take place in the Pennsylvania Convention Center and the adjacent Philadelphia Marriott Downtown Hotel. The former Reading Railroad terminal was recently renovated and added to the Pennsylvania Convention Center. The conference site is next to the historic Philadelphia City Hall, directly above the Reading Terminal Market, where you can taste local and exotic food, and steps away from the shops and restaurants of Chinatown.
