The Edelman Award banquet is one of the best events of the conference. The year’s best O.R. successes vying for the professions top recognition – and the committee sure knows how to build up the anticipation. Kudos to those who helped put the banquet together. Congratulations to all of the finalist – all of the projects were fascinating and all of them showcased the power of Operations Research. And of course – Congratulations to INDEVAL, this year’s Edelman Award winner!
