Meetings & Conferences

INFORMS Members receive reduced rates for national and international meetings.
Network, present research, and discover cutting-edge methods and operations research, management science, and analytics applications at national, international, regional, and topical conferences, specialized workshops, and related events throughout the year.

INFORMS meetings and conferences provide the ultimate learning and networking events for O.R. and Analytics professionals and students – opportunities to exchange information, ideas, and perspectives with your colleagues from around the world.

Participants in INFORMS meetings agree to treat each other with respect and consideration, and to create and ensure a collegial, inclusive, and professional environment that is welcoming to all and free from any form of discrimination, harassment, intimidation or retaliation. More information about the INFORMS Code of Conduct Policy for Meetings can be found here.

The unfolding Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis has significantly affected INFORMS Meetings in 2020. In an effort to ensure meeting attendees are able to stay aware of any changing circumstances, we have compiled a list of all INFORMS Meetings for 2020 and their current status.
