INFORMS Computing Society

Overview

The INFORMS Computing Society (ICS) addresses the interface of OR and computing. Since their earliest days, OR and computing have been tightly linked. The practice of OR depends heavily on the availability of software and systems capable of solving industrial-scale problems: computing is the heart of OR in application.

ICS is INFORMS' leading edge for computation and technology. Major ICS interests are algorithms and software for modeling, optimization, and simulation.
ICS is also interested in the leading edge of computing and how it affects OR (e.g. XML modeling standards, OR services offered over the web, open source software, constraint programming, massively parallel computing, high performance computing).

Highlights

Awards

The ICS Prize is an annual award for best English-language paper on the interface of OR and computing. The ICS Student Paper Award is given annually to the best paper on computing and operations research by a student author. The Harvey J. Greenberg Award for Service is awarded biannually.

Journal

INFORMS Journal on Computing. High-quality research related to algorithms and computation for OR.

Meetings

ICS sponsors sessions at INFORMS annual meetings and, in alternate years, sponsors a specialized conference on the interface of computing and OR/MS.

Newsletter

The ICS Newsletter is published twice a year. Features survey articles, meeting information, people news, upcoming events, and an e-mail directory.

Electronic mailing list

ICS maintains a moderated email list at computing-society@list.informs.org
