INFORMS (The Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences) organizes a series of colloquia in conjunction with its annual meeting, which, this year, will take place in Charlotte, North Carolina in mid-November.
The colloquia options are for Teaching Effectiveness to which tenure-track or even tenured faculty can apply, as well as two for doctoral students: Future Academician and Future Practitioner.
One can obtain so much valuable information from taking part in these organized colloquia and they also provide excellent opportunities for networking.
The deadline is tomorrow, July 30, 2011.
I have had many of my doctoral students take part in the colloquia over the years and they have all very much enjoyed them.
