UPDATE 4/4/14: Wide World of O.R. — The 17th annual special international issue of OR/MS Today once again turns the spotlight on interesting applications of operations research beyond the U.S. borders. This year's featured international applications range from the forests of Argentina to the farmlands of Bavaria in Germany, but the issue begins with a truly international and universal concern: public health, pandemics and associated response logistics.

Authors Mario Ventresca and Dionne Aleman note that, "public health is poised to reap the benefits of data mining technologies," and they propose an innovative approach to the problem: analyzing social networks with combinations of data mining, optimization and network science to uncover promising pandemic mitigation strategies.
