Canadian Healthcare Optimization Workshop (CHOW)

Please note that the deadline to submit a paper to the 2nd annual Canadian Healthcare Optimization Workshop (CHOW) in Halifax, Nova Scotia, on Wednesday, June 6, 2018 has been extended to April 1, 2018. It is a great opportunity to give a second presentation after the annual Canadian Operational Research Society (CORS) conference, which will be held on June 4-6, 2018. If your paper is selected to be presented at the one-day workshop, you will get sufficient time to present in our single track on healthcare operations and there will be two discussants (including a senior researcher) who will provide feedback on your work.

The goals of the workshop are to provide a forum for researchers with a common interest in healthcare optimization and to promote the research of young scholars, with the aim of networking and sharing the latest advances with other researchers in the field. Besides the presentations by young scholars, there will be a tutorial and a panel discussion.

We invite young academic scholars (doctoral students, post-doctoral researchers and non-tenured faculty) to submit working or research papers for presentation and discussion at the workshop. Published papers will not be accepted. The acceptance decision will be based on full (working) paper submissions, which will undergo a review by a panel of experts. The papers can be analytical or empirical, methodological or applied.

For all details on the submission guidelines, see the attachment.
