We would like to invite all conference attendees

field of OR/MS and to encourage discussion and interaction
among individuals having interest in the issues facing women and their
relationship to the profession of OR/MS. WORMS has been actively
involved in the INFORMS Annual meeting, and this year WORMS would like
to extend its reach to the INFORMS Business Analytics
& Operations Research Conference.
