TutORials

The TutORials in Operations Research series is published annually by INFORMS as an introduction to emerging and classical subfields of operations research and management science. These chapters are designed to be accessible for all constituents of the INFORMS community, including current students, practitioners, faculty, and researchers. The publication allows readers to keep pace with new developments in the field and serves as augmenting material for a selection of the tutorial presentations offered at the INFORMS Annual Meetings.

All attendees receive free access to the INFORMS 2021 TutORials in Operations Research online content concurrently with the meeting. Registrants of the 2021 INFORMS Annual Meeting have online access to the 2021 chapters, written by select presenters, beginning on October 24, 2021.
