June 9-12, 2019
JW Marriott & Marriott Cancun Resort

We are very pleased to invite members of INFORMS, Association of Latin-Iberoamerican Operational Research Societies (ALIO), and the worldwide OR/MS and Analytics community to join us in Cancun, Mexico in June 2019 for the INFORMS–ALIO International Meeting. This joint conference is sponsored by both INFORMS and the Mexican Society of Operations Research (SMIO).

At INFORMS–ALIO 2019, attendees will exchange ideas on classic topics covered by OR/MS and Analytics such as services, logistics and transportation, and supply chain management, as well as the new challenges brought by the increasing availability of data and its potential application to nontraditional areas such as environment, healthcare systems, sports, and disaster management. The academic meeting program will consist of parallel sessions, plenary talks, and tutorials covering different aspects of OR/MS and Analytics and will offer a forum for intellectual exchange between participants of all the countries of North and South America, as well as from other regions around the world.

INFORMS’ web-enabled abstract processing system is online and ready to accept submissions for the 2019 INFORMS International Conference, June 9-12, in Cancun. The new system makes it possible for authors of all papers–including those sponsored by INFORMS Sections, Societies, and Fora–to easily submit their abstracts online.

Featured Topics to be Covered

Data Mining/Big Data

One of the hottest topics is the intersection of data mining/big data applications with advanced optimization techniques. Explore the recent advances in this fascinating field.

Global Optimization

This tracks is about advanced solution techniques for finding global optimal solutions to difficult optimization problems.

Integer Programming

This tracks studies problems where decision variables are discrete. Models, reformulations, and state of the art techniques are presented.


Simulation is a very powerful tool when facing very complex real-world stochastic problems where analytical models or solutions are deemed impractical. The latest applications and analysis of simulation techniques are presented in this track.

Transportation/Vehicle Routing

This tracks deals with effective ways of transporting and routing products to customers under ver complex scenarios.

Decision Analysis

The Decision Analysis track describes effective ways to aid those who must make complex decisions. In particular, the talks reference systematic, quantitative, and interactive approaches to address choices, considering the likelihood and impact of unexpected, often adverse consequence.


Many practical problems, ranging from product distribution, communications and so on are modeled as networks problems. Specialized solution techniques for handling complex network problems are presented.

Supply Chain Management

Emerging concepts and innovative technologies are disrupting business and driving new policies, products, services, and channels for increased revenue. Supply chain leaders are evolving their businesses to keep pace and, during this track, our accomplished speakers will share practical applications of new concepts and technologies being implemented within their supply chain analytics programs to maximize their efficiencies while minimizing business disruptions.


Efficient operation of power networks, natural gas pipelines and energy systems has a tremendous economical impact. The latest advances techniques and models for very complex energy systems are analyzed and presented in this track.


Decision-making models and solution methods that enhance access to healthcare.


Development of advanced solution heuristic techniques to large scale hard combinatorial problems, this includes implementation of state-of-the art components.


The sequencing and scheduling of operations in production and manufacturing systems is a key to success. In this track, complex scheduling applications, models, and algorithms are presented.

Stochastic Optimization

This track deals with the modeling and solutions of decision-making problems under uncertainty.

Explore Analytics and Ancient Culture

Cancun is a truly fantastic venue, full of historical heritage, crib of the ancient Mayan culture, with splendid beaches and views of the marvelous Caribbean Sea, and unmatched exquisite cuisine. Cancun has been host to many scientific meetings, including the seventh INFORMS Computing Society Conference in January 2000. So mark your calendar for June 9–12, 2019, bring your family, and enjoy a splendid conference in a wonderful site. You will be charmed by the warmth of the people of Mexico.
