It’s almost time!
My name is Matt Liberatore and this is the first time I am blogging, so have some patience with me! I plan to arrive in Montreal early Monday and head right to the sessions and then on to the networking lunch. This is my second visit to Montreal this year, having attended a conference here in April. Looking at Montreal’s weather forecast for Monday through Wednesday gives me great confidence that it won’t be anywhere near as cold as it was in April. I must confess that I only enjoy the warmer weather.
Last June I was involved with the MSOM Healthcare Workshop in Haifa, Israel and really enjoyed the various presentations and discussions. I also found Israel to be a great place to visit and explore. INFORMS’ sponsoring a three-day health care conference demonstrates the growing importance of this industry to OR. I’m impressed with the number and range of presentations scheduled, and am looking forward. to learning about current areas of research and hopefully coming away with a couple of good ideas. Of course, the meeting offers a great opportunity to connect with some old friends. Right now I’m just finishing the PowerPoint charts for my presentation and getting ready to spend some time with family for Father’s Day weekend. Hope you have a great weekend, and see you in Montreal!
