The INFORMS Speakers Program provides access to expert speakers in operations research, analytics, and the management sciences. The Program is targeted towards INFORMS Student Chapters and Regional Chapters who wish to invite a speaker on a particular topic of interest. INFORMS provides substantial financial support to help defray the costs associated with hosting a speaker. The amount of financial support is decided on a case by case basis.
