The Future of Analytics and Operations Research

Saturday, October 15, 2022

The field of operations research and management science has undergone a major transformation over the past three decades, as advances in computing have enabled the rise of data-driven decisions, allowing analytics to impact new application areas such as health care. The purpose of this workshop is to chart new directions for analytics and operations research over the next 30 years by showcasing the diverse skills, interests, accomplishments, and ideas of past and present members of Dimitris Bertsimas’ research group at MIT.

Over the past 35 years, Prof. Bertsimas, along with more than 100 doctoral and postdoctoral researchers, has worked on optimization, probabilistic methods, queueing models, and machine learning, all while tackling a wide range of impactful applications from agriculture to finance, transportation, personalized medicine, and health care operations. Additionally, he turns 60 a few weeks before the 2022 Annual Meeting.

This workshop will involve a series of talks that will span different generations of researchers whose career started as part of his group at MIT across the following broader areas:

  • Healthcare analytics
  • Impact-driven operations research
  • Optimization and machine learning
  • Robust and data-driven optimization

Presentations and Attendance

Only invited speakers will present at the workshop but the event is open to all annual meeting attendees on a first come, first serve basis. Space is limited.
