Abstract Submission

INFORMS’ new web-enabled abstract processing system is now online and ready to accept submissions for the 2017 INFORMS Annual Meeting, October 22-25, in Houston, TX. The new system makes it possible for authors of all papers–including those sponsored by INFORMS Sections, Societies, and Fora–to easily submit their abstracts online.

ALL SPEAKERS must be registered by September 8, 2017. If speakers are not registered by September 8, 2017, the speaker will be notified that the presentation will be removed from the program.

 

In recent years, the INFORMS Annual Meeting has grown significantly, making it difficult to accommodate all the talks submitted. It may be necessary to accept submissions in the order in which they are received if there is not sufficient capacity to schedule all the talks submitted by May 15. Therefore we encourage you to submit early, well before the May 15 deadline.

We prefer that you consider submitting at most one presentation per person in each of the following categories: INVITED, SPONSORED, CONTRIBUTED & POSTER.
