Use the links on the left to access the appropriate information.

Conference Theme: The theme of this year's conference is OM in the New World Uncertainties. The theme addresses the significant changes occurring in the current geopolitical and economic landscapes and the role of OM in this new environment. Unprecedented changes have occurred relative to globalization and offshoring, use of technologies ranging from e- business to RFID, management of global and cross-cultural supply chains, and the focus on corporate and homeland security. Inter-organizational dependence of supply chains has made companies increasingly vulnerable to natural and man- made disasters, such as the 911 attacks, the SARS epidemic, and hurricane Katrina. To remain relevant in this new world economy OM must break beyond functional boundaries and work collaboratively with areas ranging from operations research to marketing to organizational behavior. This new environment is demanding the bridging of theory and empirical research in order to equip OM with currency and corporate relevance. OM has a critical role to play in this new world economy and the theme of this year's conference reflects that.

Conference Venue: The conference will be held at the Hyatt Regency Boston, One Avenue de Lafayette, Boston, Massachusetts, U.S.A. Located in the heart of Boston, the Hyatt Regency is just one block from Boston Common and adjacent to the Lafayette Corporate Center. It is the perfect location for visitors to experience all the city of Boston has to offer.

The POM-2006 planning team is working very hard in putting together an exciting program. Our goal is to put together a program that will appeal to anyone interested in improving their research productivity, bringing the latest materials to the classroom, or using the latest OM techniques/software in solving OM problems. We hope to see you all in Boston!

Any future revisions of this announcement will be posted on the POMS website. Please feel free to contact us if you have any improvement ideas. Thank you.
