The aims of the Service Science Section fit well with the theme of the meeting, INFORMATICS RISING, which blends the growing role of OR/MS techniques for understanding natural and artificial systems and couples them with computing and communication technologies to drive decision making to enrich lives and enhance our professional activity. Key thematic areas for the conference include healthcare delivery, security, global enterprise, sustainability, and education as well as the underlying tools of the profession.

Again, if you would like to chair a session, please contact Greg Heim ( as soon as you have identified a tentative topic focus for the intended presentations in your session.

The deadline for authors to submit abstracts is May 15, 2012.
