Submit Early, Capacity Limited

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.

Abstract Size/Length: Abstract should be 600 characters maximum (approximately 60 words), title of abstract – 150 characters maximum.

•    Letters, numbers, and *math symbols accepted.
•    All abstracts must be in English.
•    Do not include title or author information in the body of your abstract.
•    Abstracts will be published exactly as entered if accepted.
•    Review your abstract and check for typographical and spelling errors, and scientific sense.

exclamation-pointPLEASE NOTE: Use only “text pad” when entering math symbols.

Last Day for Changes:  Last day to make changes to existing abstracts is September 12, 2016.
