Current Issue:
June 2015



UPDATE 6/8/15: Gene Woolsey - a powerful, vocal and unflinching force of nature in the O.R. community for several decades - passed away earlier this year. In the June issue of OR/MS Today, former students, colleagues and friends recall the life and times of the unforgettable professor, provocateur and patron saint of O.R. practical applications. Given Dr. Woolsey's historical impact on the profession, it's fitting that the issue also includes an article on the "useful history" of operations research and what the future may hold.
