The department of Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISE) announced several key lectures in the coming months, including its signature Spencer C. Schantz Distinguished Lecture Series this spring.
The two-day event will be held April 17-18 and will feature a public and technical lecture by NYU research professor Ralph E. Gomory. Gomory, best known for his mathematical research and technical leadership, ran IBM’s Research Division for twentyyears, followed by 18 years as President of the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. Gomory was also a recipient of the National Medal of Science.
Following Thursday's public lecture, the department will hold its annual ISE Banquet. Alumni and Friends of ISE are again welcome to attend the event and can find more information on the department's Web site at http://lehigh.edu/ise/banquet2013.html or contact Amanda Fabrizio at firstname.lastname@example.org.
On August 14-16, ISE will again host the 13th annual Modeling and OPtimization: Theory and Applications (MOPTA). The event, held at Lehigh University in 2012, was founded in an effort to bring together a diverse group of people from both iscrete and continuous optimization, working on both theoretical and applied aspects.
