Inspiring Sessions

by Helio Yang on October 11th, 2009

Today’s plenary speaker Professor Hau Lee challenged what we do as professors and researchers to a higher level in addressing critical issues faced by the world. His talk highlighted the theme of the conference-the globe. As an elite group of scholars, OR/MS community can make significant contributions to trade friction and humanitarian disasters. I also learned from Professor van Wassenhove’s tutorial session on their efforts in working with Red Cross and private companies to improve supply chain performances in bringing relieves to disaster victims. Some common practices in SCM resulted in huge improvement! I searched conference program database and there are 32 presentations related to this area. Thanks all for bringing OR/MS to the solutions of the needy.
