The main objective of this sympoisum is to offer an opportunity for doctoral students working in areas of OR and Data Analytics to meet and share their research experiences and to present their work to a larger community for external review and feedback. We request you to encourage one or two of your doctoral students who have completed at least two years of doctoral studies to send in a two page proposal based on which they would be selected to present their work at the doctoral symposium. The proposal should highlight the contributions of the work and bring out the novelty of the work in the context of the current art in the topic of investigation. A brief 20 line bio-data should also be sent by the candidates. The doctoral students nominated by you should email their proposal and bio to pvinayak@in.ibm.com, as early as possible, in any case before February 10, 2008. We are planning to provide attractive prizes to the best presentations at the symposium.
