The Smith School of Business, Queen's University is excited to host the 18th Annual INFORMS Revenue Management and Pricing (RM&P) Section Conference, on Thursday, June 21, 2018, and Friday, June 22, 2018, at the Scotiabank Conference Centre in Toronto, Canada. This event is the premier forum for both academics and practitioners who are active in research in the fields of pricing analytics and revenue management. The conference will be held in conjunction with the Marketplace Innovation Workshop.
Practical Problems Presentations
The field of revenue management has witnessed many examples of theoretical models being successfully applied in practice. Nevertheless, as a practitioner, it can sometimes be difficult to connect the models and assumptions in scientific presentations to one’s own concrete business problems or to get in touch with the right person who is knowledgeable about the pricing or RM challenge one is facing. At the same time, for many researchers, it is not always clear what the `real’ problems are that need to be solved in practice. To help to bridge this gap between academia and industry, the conference facilitates sessions especially devoted to practical RM problems. We invite practitioners to deliver a short presentation (10 to 15 minutes) about their company’s profile and a concrete pricing or RM challenge they face.
We look forward to seeing you in Toronto this summer!
