GAMS at the 2018 INFORMS International Conference in Taipei

by Yvonne Neumann Conferences Taiwan

GAMS had the pleasure of sponsoring and attending the 2018 INFORMS International Conference in Taipei this year. The conference was located at the center of Taipei and the famous Taipei Skyscraper was just a few blocks away from the convention center. As usual this conference was very well organized and packed with great talks and networking opportunities. It was a pleasure to connect with some of our customers from Asia at the GAMS booth during the event and learn more about new ways in which organizations are doing optimization.

The variety of fields in which the Asian OR community is active in order to improve processes, knowledge and understanding is very rich and fascinating. In particular, some very interesting and promising results on connecting AI and OR were presented and we had a captivating discussion about leveraging OR to explain human behaviors such as procrastination.

On Tuesday we gave two well-received talks on running GAMS models in Cloud environments and on High-Performance Computing resources as well as on an exam scheduling system we developed for the USMA West Point.

We look forward to meeting you at the next Conferences in Valencia and Brussels!
