Great Time Blogging the INFORMS Conference in Nashville

I returned late last evening from the INFORMS Annual Conference, which took place in Nashville, Tennessee, November 13-16, 2016. The conference attracted over 5,700 operations researchers, management scientists, and analytics professionals from around the globe.

The technical  sessions, tutorials, special events, business meetings, social networking get-togethers, exhibits, and informal meetings made for a very exciting and energizing conference. Plus, my co-authors and I had 5 technical presentations and I had also organized  special session on Novel Applications of Network Optimization.

I was one of the official bloggers for this conference and wrote three posts:
