The INFORMS Computing Society (ICS) addresses the interface of O.R. and computing. Since their earliest days, O.R. and computing have been tightly linked. The practice of O.R. depends heavily on the availability of software and systems capable of solving industrial-scale problems: computing is the heart of O.R. in application.

ICS is INFORMS' leading edge for computation and technology. Major ICS interests are algorithms and software for modeling, optimization, and simulation. ICS is also interested in the leading edge of computing and how it affects O.R. (e.g. XML modeling standards, O.R. services offered over the web, open source software, constraint programming, massively parallel computing, high performance computing).
