Purpose: The society is concerned with computer science, artificial intelligence, and their relationship to operations research and the management sciences. The purpose of the society is twofold: a) to help keep INFORMS members abreast of useful developments in CS/AI, and b) to contribute to the vigor of research and practice in the INFORMS community by encouraging activity on the interface of OR/MS and CS/AI. Specific areas of interest include design and analysis of algorithms, heuristic search, learning, modeling languages, parallel and distributed computing, simulation, computational logic, visualization, and empirical evaluation of algorithms.
