The Excitement Builds
The time has come for another exciting INFORMS Conference! It was this time last year that I fretted over the Federal Government Budget Showdown – and my ability to attend in Chicago hung on the decision. This year – all lights are green and I’m ready to go.
I am looking forward to a day full of tutorials on Sunday. Data mining and cloud computing are big buzz words around the office these days. I have lined up three tutorials that I think will help me understand the data mining world better. However, I have to admit, I am tantalized by the Spreadsheet Guru Competition… am I good enough to compete? Hmmm…
One of the moments I most look forward to is the Edelman Award Gala. There is a lot of good O.R. being done across the globe. The best of the best will present their work for the chance to win O.R.’s most coveted award – the Edelman Prize.
<ShamelessPlug> Since last year’s Analytics Conference in Chicago, I have become the secretary or the Rocky Mountain Chapter of INFORMS. We are considering hosting an INFORMS Regional Conference at some point in the next few years. Please let me know your thoughts about a Rocky Mountain Regional Conference! </ShamelessPlug>
