Regional Conferences

No INFORMS-sponsored regional conferences planned for 2012 or 2013

INFORMS Regional Conferences provide an affordable, intimate setting close to home to discuss, learn, and brush up on current research and practice in OR/MS.

The goal of INFORMS Regional Conferences is to facilitate communication and learning among OR/MS academics, practitioners, and students around current research and applied work.
