    2021 INFORMS Revenue Management and Pricing (RM&P) Section Virtual Conference

    June 28 - 30, 2021

    Website: https://carey.jhu.edu/faculty/seminars-conferences/informs-conference

    We are pleased to announce that the Johns Hopkins Carey Business School will host the 20th Annual RM&P Virtual Conference on June 28 - 30, 2021. This event is the premier forum for both academics and practitioners who are active in research and application in the fields of pricing analytics and revenue management.

    The 2021 INFORMS RM&P Conference will feature keynote speakers Guillermo Gallego and Garrett van Ryzin. The conference will have "Spotlight Sessions," in which selected speakers will present their full papers and invited discussants will comment subsequently. In addition, the conference program will include "Practice Sessions," which will give practitioners an opportunity to share their most pressing problems and will provide a forum for discussion among academics and practitioners.

    The website is now open for submissions and registration.

    For general sessions, please submit an abstract that should not exceed 2500 characters – approximately one page.

    If you would like to be considered for a spotlight session, please submit a full paper that should not exceed 32 pages with 33 lines of text per page (1.5 spacing) and comply with Management Science formatting standard.

    The abstracts and full papers shall be submitted through this link: https://www.abstractsonline.com/dashboard/login.asp?aId=475&targetMKey={77F71059-431E-44BD-B1F5-ABD88EDF18D3}&targetMod=submit

    During the submission, you may check (1) General Session, (2) Spotlight Session (full paper), (3) General Session if not selected for Spotlight Session. The abstracts and full papers will be evaluated to ensure their fit with the conference.

    • Taking into account the feedback from our community members and the RM&P Board, the 2021 RM&P Virtual Conference will be live. All speakers are expected to deliver their talks live, followed by live Q&A.
    • Any speakers that are concerned about Internet connection or other technical issues may pre-record their presentations, and session chairs will play recordings live in case there is a problem.
    • To ensure the inclusion of more speakers, each attendee is limited to a maximum of one submission as a presenting author (although they may co-author more than one submission).
    • The sessions will take place from 9:00am to 3:00pm (EST). We will do our best to accommodate your preference of presenting times.

    The conference registration is now open:
