    The registration date for Railway Problem Solving Competition has been extended to June 15, 2021. Every team must register by the due date to participate in the contest. To register, please send the following information to railwayapplicationssection@gmail.com by the deadline.


    For your refresher, the Railway Applications Section of INFORMS has earlier announced another new applied problem-solving competition to introduce participants to the exciting world of operations research in railroading. The competition is open to anyone who is either new to railroading or new to ORMS. If you would like to challenge your OR or ML skills, you are welcome to participate in this predictive ETA modeling problem. In addition to the following cash prizes, the first prize winners' contribution to this competition will also be considered for publication in the journal Networks. The paper still needs to go through the journal's refereeing process; however, it will receive an expedited refereeing and publication process.

    First Prize:

    $2,000

    Second Prize:

    $1,000

    Third Prize:

    $750
