What keeps you up at night? Here’s your chance to vent, learn, and get some sleep.
The INFORMS Conference on O.R. Practice has a pretty well-earned reputation for providing good opportunities to network and discuss common areas of interest in a casual setting. The “birds of a feather” gatherings, as the organizers like to call them, allow you to sit down with snacks and a facilitator and focus in on topics you care about. The organizers have come up with some interesting birds of a feather topics such as (1) selling and implementing O.R., (2) serving the general analytics market, (3) health care and humanitarian O.R., (4) O.R. in the hospitality, entertainment and other service industries, and (5) the job market for O.R. professionals. Not bad, but I wonder if they have missed some hot topics. What keeps you up at night? Do you have something you’d like to get off your chest and find out how others are dealing with it? Let us know what you’d like to see the birds take on.
