2018 YinzOR Student Conference and Poster Competition by CMU INFORMS Student Chapter

The CMU INFORMS Student Chapter is excited to announce the second annual YinzOR Student Conference and poster competition, held in Pittsburgh, PA on August 24-25. YinzOR, sponsored by EQT Corporation and the Tepper School of Business, is a single-track conference that brings together students studying OR, OM, MS, IE, CS, or related areas, to facilitate interaction and collaboration with peers. This year we are honored to have speakers from Carnegie Mellon University, University of Pittsburgh, Georgia Tech University, University of Pennsylvania, Lehigh University, University of Michigan Ann Arbor, Google, and EQT Corporation.

In addition to talks, we’re also hosting a poster competition open to all PhD students in related fields. The panel of judges for the poster session will consist of CMU faculty members. The top three poster presenters will win cash prizes: $500 first place, $300 second place, $200 third place.

If you are interested and willing to present a poster, please email us (at informs@andrew.cmu.edu or mneda@andrew.cmu.edu) a one paragraph abstract (no more than 150 words) by July 31. You will be informed of the results by August 7. We provide up to $50 reimbursement for poster printing expenses to the accepted presenters.

More details of the 2018 YinzOR conference can be found on our website, and attendance is open to all PhD students.
