Service Science Section would like to thank many of you for your great support and active participations in activities/events sponsored by the Section. Without the support, hard work, and contributions from many of you, the Section wouldn't be able to accomplish the following in 2017. 1) We had about 30 sessions at the annual meeting in Houston; 2) we selected the best Service Science journal article winner; 3) we hosted the Best IBM Service Science Student Paper competition; 4) we ran the best Service Science Cluster Paper competition, and 5) we organized 2017 IBM Service Analytics Challenge. As mentioned in the subject, in 2018 we will have more new initiatives, such as pre-conference or mini-conference before INFORMS annual meeting and Ph.D. dissertation competition.
Memberships are required for participating an activity/event sponsored by Service Science Section. The Office just had a meeting and decided: starting from now, INFORMS Student members can join Service Science Section for free. Therefore, please let your students or friends know to join the Service Science Section when he/she renews his/her membership.
