Call for Papers

Submission Guidelines
As the premier OR/MS conference, INFORMS Annual Meeting 2015 invites submissions in all areas of the field, broadly defined. We prefer that you consider submitting at most one presentation per person in each of the following categories: INVITED, SPONSORED, CONTRIBUTED & INTERACTIVE.

Registration Required to Present – Visa Information
All attendees, including speakers and session chairs, must register and pay the registration fee. If you need an early confirmation for visa or budgetary reasons, please indicate this in the “Comments” field on the online form.

Submission Deadline: May 15, 2015 – We are no longer accepting submissions.
Abstracts received by May 15 will receive preference in scheduling. 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.

Program Online
Once the preliminary program has been finalized and posted on the Web, all speakers will receive an email directing them to the online program for the date and time of their presentations, registration, A/V, hotel information and other speaker guidelines.

Poster Sessions
The Poster Sessions, scheduled for Monday and Tuesday during the meeting, provide excellent visibility for posters, with prominent display in well-attended areas of the meeting. Presenters benefit from the interactive critique, suggestions and encouragement from colleagues working in similar areas. A panel of prestigious OR/MS leaders will review posters presented for competition, with three prize winners selected each day.
