Learning and networking across the globe, a unique virtual international meeting experience

Globally Accessible. Community Building. Resoundingly Human. INFORMS is thrilled to invite you to be a part of the inaugural virtual INFORMS Annual Meeting entirely hosted on a unique and engaging online platform. Attendees will gain access to a global community of operations research and analytics professionals, students, educators, exhibitors and more. Join us as we explore the latest research, best practices, and leading insight into groundbreaking areas within the fields such as data science, supply chain functionality, and advanced analytics, as well as the myriad ways O.R. and analytics have helped the world respond to the many challenges of the coronavirus pandemic. And unlike an in-person meeting, you will have access to the presentations for three months after the end of the Virtual 2020 INFORMS Annual Meeting.
