Call for Education/CTL Cluster sessions (deadline 7/30)

  • 1.  Call for Education/CTL Cluster sessions (deadline 7/30)

    Posted 07-19-2020 21:56
    With the shift to a 100% virtual Annual Meeting (Nov 8-11), the window for new sessions and talks has been reopened. Therefore CTL is soliciting additional session chairs/sessions and talks. The new deadline for sessions and talks is July 30th. Should you wish to organize an Education/CTL Cluster session, the requirements are as follows:

    1. General session: General sessions have a minimum of four invited talks and a maximum of six invited talks. As long as the session chair identifies four invited talks the remainder of the session can be filled out with contributed talks.


    2. Panel session: Panel sessions have a moderator and 3-4 panelists.

    Possible session topics include anything related to OR/MS/Analytics teaching, pedagogy, etc. One potential example is "What should my course look like if students go home for Thanksgiving and don't return to campus?"

    If you would like to organize either a general or panel session, please email Neil Desnoyers (CTL Chair) at by July 30th (preferably before).

    Please also feel free to contact me with questions.
