OR Goes to Washington

CapitalAs the field of operations research has matured, its practitioners have increasingly taken on great social challenges and the associated policy questions. The return of the INFORMS Annual Meeting to Washington, DC provides the opportunity to emphasize the great influence operations research can have in this domain. In fact, several challenges have emerged in recent years that are particularly daunting and seem to have politicians groping for answers. Operations research has the potential to provide a fresh perspective and relevant analytic tools to problems involving global warming, energy independence, fair and secure voting mechanisms, global terrorism, homeland security, transportation system delays and affordable health care, to name a few. The INFORMS Annual Meeting 2008 will take advantage of its presence in Washington, DC to emphasize the ability of operations research to take on great social questions and to influence government decision-makers.
