I didn’t go to INFORMS, because I get lost at mega-conferences. Give me 200 people attending one track of talks, preferably with lots of coffee breaks. But I did talk to people who went. One exciting thing that I heard about is this: Pyomo, the Python Optimization Modeling Objects package. There was a talk that applied it to do some optimization of disease parameters for an infectious disease model, which is sort of like the business I’ve been getting in to lately. Fortunately, the slides from the talk are online, here.
Now I must see if I can run the examples.
