I again chaired the INFORMS Government & Analytics Summit in Washington, D.C. on May 20, 2019. The Summit brought together INFORMS experts with policymakers from Capitol Hill, federal agencies, and other policy stakeholders to showcase impactful ways in which operations research tools are being used to save lives, save money and solve problems in the public and private sectors. Pictures from the Summit are below.
Secretary John McHugh gave the keynote talk. INFORMS President Ramayya Krishnan and INFORMS Executive Director Melissa Moore also gave some remarks.
I chaired the panel with panelists Bala Ganesh (UPS), Karla Hoffman (George Mason University), Don Kleinmuntz (Kleinmuntz Associates), Sheldon Jacobson (University of Illinois), David Shmoys (Cornell University). The panel discussed successful case studies based on their work, research, and consulting. The panel was recorded, and you can watch it below:
I discussed the Summit on the INFORMS Resoundingly Human podcast. You can listen to it here.
