Track 1: Military Applications I: Modeling and Analysis

What aspects of O.R., advanced analytics, artificial intelligence, or machine learning are missing or underutilized within the military O.R. community? How can their incorporation better increase the rigorous and impactfulness of analysis provided to military decision-makers?      

Track 2: Military Applications II: Holistic Applications

Track 3: Resilience I: Security

Track Chairs: David Alderson & Daniel Eisenberg, Naval Postgraduate School

Over the last fifteen years, the concept of resilience has become popular for characterizing behavior in the presence of stress. The term has been applied to behavior at the level of a system, organization, or individual, and has become increasingly used across a variety of disciplines, including material science, ecology, psychology, emergency management, engineering, and national security. This track takes a modern look at the concept of resilience as it applies to the ability of a system to continue to operate in the presence of disruptive events and/or surprise.

Track 3A: Risk in Cyberspace

Track 4: Resilience II: Infrastructure Focus

How can network systems – such as logistics, transportation, energy, communications, and even human networks – be better designed and protected to increase their robustness and resiliency to attack and degradation?   

Track 5: Resilience III: Cyberspace & Beyond

How can network systems – such as logistics, transportation, energy, communications, and even human networks – be better designed and protected to increase their robustness and resiliency to attack and degradation?   

Track 6: Disaster Preparedness

How can O.R. and analytics better help government agencies and the public writ large understand and prepare for emergencies?

Track 7: Frontiers I: Machine Learning & Modern Data Analytics

How can the security community benefit from and drive innovation and advances in operations research tools, techniques, and practices?

Track 8: Frontiers II: Interdisciplinary Applications
