Optimization has long been a cornerstone for advancement of various
industrial, government, and military applications. To highlight and
support the role of optimization in current advances, and to promote
interaction between researchers, the INFORMS Optimization Society launched
a biannual conference starting in 2006. The 2006 Conference was held in
San Antonio on February 3-5, 2006, and focused on "Optimization and
HealthCare." The event featured plenary speakers Arkadi Nemirovski, Ronald
Rardin, and Sorin Istrail, and had over one hundred attendees.
The themes for the INFORMS Optimization Conference 2008 are theory,
computation and emerging applications.
The conference is to be held at the Hyatt Regency Atlanta hotel
and hosted by the
of Industrial and Systems Engineering in Atlanta, GA (USA).
