Welcome to the ORB

Welcome to Michael Tricks Operations Research Blog (ORB). At the moment, this is a  blog to see if this is something I want to continue with. With this blog, I plan to chat about happenings in the world of Operations Research.

A few words about me: I am a past President of INFORMS (The Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences) and am currently a Vice President of IFORS (the International Federation of Operational Research Societies). A long time ago, I created Michael Trick’s Operations Research Page, which eventually became the INFORMS Resources Page. I was also the founding editor of INFORMS Online.

For the past eight years, I was President of the Carnegie Bosch Institute for Applied Studies in International Management, but my time is up, so I am looking for other things to do. Starting January, I will be an Area Editor for the journal Operations Research, responsible for the “OR Forum”: articles on controversial and/or important issues in operations research. This blog is part of some thoughts I had for how to make that Area be relevant and interesting.

So, let’s get this show on the road, and see what happens.
