Abstract Submission

Submissions will be open soon. This is a fully in-person meeting. All speakers must be present in Seattle.

The theme for the 2024 INFORMS Annual Meeting is, “Smarter decisions for a better world.”  We encourage all prospective speakers to keep this theme in mind as they explore the different opportunities to present at this year’s Annual Meeting!

Submit an Abstract

All speakers are required to register and make payment by August 1, 2024. Unregistered speakers will be notified, and their presentation may be removed from the program.

Presentation Limitation

An attendee may only present one invited, one contributed, or one flash talk at the conference. The first presentation submitted with the individual’s name as a presenter will be accepted. 

Presentation Types

Based on positive feedback, technical sessions will be 75-minutes long again this year. For all submission types, speakers are required to register by August 1. 

Invited Submissions (Community & Committee’s Choice): These are submitted by a Session Chair who has organized a full session. Typically, they have 4-5 presentations that are 15-18 minutes each. 

Contributed Submissions: These are submitted by a speaker using the “Submit an Abstract” button above. These will have 4-5 presentations that are 15 minutes each.
