INFORMS Student Mixer

November 3, 2018 @ 8:00 PM

This year the international INFORMS Annual Meeting will be happening in Phoenix from November 4th to 7th. This conference draws academics and professionals in the field of operations research and management sciences from across the world. As the local INFORMS student chapter, we have been organizing a student mixer for all graduate and post-doctoral students attending the conference. The mixer is co-sponsored by the national INFORMS organization, and it has been promoted by the annual meeting organizers. This event will certainly add notoriety to the INFORMS@ASU brand, and ASU as a whole. Currently there are 75 students who have registered via the INFORMS conference registration portal, including a $10 registration fee, which will be used to cover dŽcor, raffle prizes, and any other unforeseen miscellaneous expenses. The mixer will be a huge night on 11/3 (that will include a hike up Hayden Butte (6-7), a tour through campus (7-8), and a night in SparkyÕs Den (8-10:30) with live music, catered buffet, battle decks slide show improve game, and ping pong/pool/socializing. This event will be co-sponsored by FSO who will be funding the room reservations, event entertainment, and the remaining catering costs. We are asking for GPSA to cover $1942.92 for this event, the total cost is budgeted at $3,783.43. Catering is the largest cost, and the quotes from Aramark are attached.
