Letter From The Lead Editors

Spring/Summer 2021 Edition of OR/MS Tomorrow

Dear OR/MS Community Members,

We are pleased to share with you the Spring/Summer 2021 edition of OR/MS Tomorrow!

In this issue, we discuss a myriad of topics in different areas, including analytics to address homelessness, operations management within the sharing economy, algorithmic perspective of metaheuristics in optimization and transportation, air quality and health impacts during COVID-19.

We also reached out to the 2020 Judith Liebman Award Winners Sebastián Barriga, Wesley Marrero, and Hyame Alameddine to share with us their experience as inspiring student volunteers in their universities, their student chapters, and INFORMS.

Many thanks to Associate Professor Minh-Ngoc Tran and Tiffany Li for sharing their work on cognitive modelling of consumer preferences. We would also like to thank Associate Professor Evrim Dalkiran for sharing a large variety of modern tools for operations research and Dr. Shubhabrata for sharing with us about the COVID-19 vaccine supply chain strategies. Thank you to Dr. Robert James for sharing on the topic of Dynamic Time Warping.

Submissions for the Fall/Winter 2021 issue are welcomed. Contact us via email at orms_tomorrow@mail.informs.org!

We hope you enjoy the content.
