Tepper Quadrangle, Carnegie Mellon University on Friday and Saturday, August 23-24, 2019, is a single-track conference that brings together PhD students studying OR, OM, IE, ChemE, CS and related areas, to facilitate interaction and collaboration with peers. Attendance is open to all PhD students. Check out our website for conference details.

    Flash Talks - abstract submission extended to 11:59 PM (PT) Aug 5th, 2019.

    We are introducing a fun-event, Flash Talks, where selected speakers give 5-min talks without using certain "taboo words". Please send an extended abstract of your work via the Flash Talk form if you wish to participate. Top three presenters each receives a cash prize of $70.

    Poster Competition - abstract submission closes tonight (Aug 1st) at 11:59 PM (PT)

    We are hosting a poster competition open to all PhD students in related fields (Friday, August 23). The panel of judges for the poster session will consist of faculty members. The top three poster presenters will win cash prizes: $500 1st place, $300 2nd place, $200 3rd place. In addition, we have People's Choice Award with $200!
