Speakers Program Committee


The Speakers Program facilitates access to excellent speakers who are experts in some aspect of OR/MS. Such speakers are in demand by INFORMS chapters seeking non-local speakers, university-level students and faculty (especially those trying to strengthen their OR/MS program or to launch an OR/MS-related program), practitioners and managers at organizations with established OR/MS projects and at those trying to establish such activities, and kindred societies and members of the press seeking information about OR/MS activities.
