4,000 numbers crunchers count on San Diego
Date:9/25/2009

When 4,000 experts in everything from problems with California's hospitals to a perpetual game of Monopoly come to San Diego on October 11, the city will find itself deluged not only by smart people who use math for a living but also problem solvers who tackle America's greatest threats.

The annual meeting of the Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORMS) takes place at the San Diego Convention Center and the Hilton San Diego from Sunday, October 11 - Wednesday, October 14.

Operations research, also known as analytics, is the application of advanced analytical methods to help make better decisions. Information about the field is at www.scienceofbetter.org. Analytics is experiencing a rebirth in organizations like HP, the U.S. Navy, and technology-based companies like Intel and Cisco. It is the subject of the popular business title Competing on Analytics by Thomas H. Davenport and Jeanne G. Harris.

Among the highlights of the annual meeting are:

  • Healthcare
