Remarks from our Plenary Speakers

From Richard C. Larson

Travel so Far West You’re East!

June! June! Time to fly to Taipei City, Taiwan’s capital. Can you think of a better getaway – winter snow storms a distant memory, and stimulation of the INFORMS International Conference? I’m a plenary speaker – on Services Industries. We have two surprises: The first is the high “birth rate” of university professors, the numbers of Ph.D. students produced over a faculty lifetime. We consider options for faculty “birth control”! The second: You’ll have to attend to find out!

And beautiful Taiwan? My wife and I plan to spend extra time to visit some of its marvels. See you “In the East.”

From Christopher S. Tang

Sharing and Learning during INFORMS Taipei

After a hectic school year, Taiwan is a great location to relax. This June, I have the honor to serve as a plenary speaker at INFORMS Taipei. While it is a challenge to discuss a general topic that is novel, I plan to talk about “Making Supply Chain Transparent for a Better World: Information and Analysis.”

I plan to discuss a new trend in which companies are gaining more supply chain visibility to reduce their supply chain risks. However, few companies are disclosing what they know with the public. Should a firm disclose its supply chain information to the public? What are the risks and opportunities? I plan to share some recent research and case studies to illustrate how supply chain transparency can improve our world: planet, people and profit. At the same time, I want to learn from you about your views over this matter.

It is my hope that this session will be a fun sharing and learning session. So, please join me in attending INFORMS Taipei in June.
