Connect with People

At INFORMS, we believe the essence of our existence is to create the mechanism for members to associate, collaborate, and network with ease. To that end, members and potential members have numerous ways to connect and group themselves into areas of expertise.

In This Area

Handshake The expert list in operations research is predominantly geared towards press who, at any time, may contact INFORMS for reaction to a breaking business news story such as airline saftey, e-commerce, or the military. Althought this program is geared toward press, students, practitioners, and potential consumers of OR/MS may also feel free to search out these experts for consultation.

INFORMS' member directory provides an easy search interface to locate and connect with any of INFORMS 10,000+ members. INFORMS' member directory is only available to members.

INFORMS fellows are elected individuals who have demonstrated outstanding and exceptional accomplishments and experience over a period of time in operations research and the management sciences.

Members of the INFORMS speakers program are experts in key areas of OR/MS who have volunteered to speak at universities, government agencies, or businesses. They are key to spreading the good word about OR/MS.

Volunteering for INFORMS activities is one of the best ways to build your professional profile, meet potential colleagues and friends, and one of the most pleasing aspects of your memberrship with INFORMS.
