OR2014, in addition to the well-established scientific program, features new formats with participation from companies. Wednesday, September 3, 2014 is the conference business day.
GOR Company Award (Unternehmenspreis)
The laureate of the 2014 GOR Company Award will be announced during the opening session and gives a semi-plenary presentation on Wednesday at 15.00.
Additonally, there are OR success stories on Wednesday, Sep 3 all day, presented in the business talks by companies; and a business panel on Wednesday 3, 17.45, discussing whether "analytics" is a hype or here to stay.
Participants from industry attending mainly because of the business day meet other conference participants during breaks. They are encouraged to attend regular scientific sessions and vice versa academics are invited to the business streams' sessions. The organizers hope that this format fosters the exchange between business participants, exhibitors, and academics in order to spread the word about successful use of OR, in industry and academia.
