The theme of this year’s conference is the Collaboration of Operations Research practitioners with practitioners from other fields, like Machine Learning, Econometrics, Simulation, etc. We will talk about inspiring examples of synergies arising across fields, where multiple disciplines amplify each other in the ultimate quest to deliver impact on business, society, economics, and human lives in general. Speakers are also invited to share their experiences of difficulties they have encountered with such multi-disciplinary collaboration and any insights or strategies on how to address these.
