Informs 2011 – Transformation

  • November 13, 2011
  • Charlotte, USA


What better place to showcase our critical role in this process than Charlotte, a city that has gone from cotton fields to a major financial and Fortune 500 hub. Charlotte is the city that’s transfORmed with the times and is gaining momentum in the Southeast as the destination to live, work and play.

The INFORMS meeting will be held at the Charlotte Convention Center, conveniently located between the two largest conference hotels, the Westin and the Hilton. Tours to regional high-tech firms and museum and outdoor tours are planned. Attendees can look forward to an exciting conference, exhilarating attractions, unbeatable dining and nightlife, and Southern hospitality. On behalf of the organizing committee, I invite the worldwide OR/MS community to join us in Charlotte.
