Poster Presentations

All posters will be entered into the Best Poster Competition. There will be a poster presentation session during which poster authors will present their work to a panel of experts, who will review each poster and presentation and judge them according to several criteria, including real-world impact, methodological novelty, and poster design. Awards will be given for best poster and honourable mention.

Poster Guidelines: Posters should be printed on a single large sheet of paper/plastic/fabric that can be mounted on a bulletin board (Board will be provided by INFORMS.) The bulletin board provided by INFORMS measures 7.5 feet wide by 3.5 feet high. Your overall poster must fit within that space.
