Invitation to the conference Contemporary Methods and Practices in Credit Risk - May 18, 2021,
(2021-04-20)

The Department of Decision Support and Analysis (ZWiAD) of the Warsaw School of Economics is organizing the conference Contemporary Methods and Practices in Credit Risk on May 18, 2021 . The subject of the conference is related to the subject of the monograph prepared by the employees of the Department. This monograph, entitled Credit Scoring in Context of Interpretable Machine Learning. Theory and Practice is now available for sale at https://bit.ly/3tLWzPO . The issues presented during the conference are closely related to modern operational research and artificial intelligence methods used in credit scoring . We hope they will be interesting for you - we cordially invite you to the meeting and to read the monograph.

We are celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Department of Decision Support and Analysis of the Warsaw School of Economics , the team of conference organizers. Already the second generation continues a scientific adventure that respects the diverse scientific interests in the area supporting and analyzing managerial decisions using methods rooted in operations research. The effects of research and applications were created and developed in cooperation with colleagues from universities, from the Polish and foreign scientific community, students and our pupils operating in the economy and staying in touch with us. The conference and monograph prove it. We would like to celebrate our jubilee with you.

Due to the realities of the pandemic, the conference was organized as a remote meeting . I hope that also in this form, the event will strengthen the integration of our community and substantive scientific discussion, this time devoted to credit decisions. We cordially invite you to participate in the conference - applications can be sent via the form available on the website: http://bityl.pl/kosAj

The information poster can be found in the link to the pdf file (in polish).

Doug Samuelson

will present a paper (using the Skype application)

Uses and Misuses of Quantitative Methods in CurrentEvents: Implications for National and International Security

ABSTRACT.
Political campaigns have become increasingly driven by images, memes and social mediamessaging rather than policy statements. We review some prominent examples from USPresidential campaigns and discuss how confusing and disruptive messaging was used. Statistics, Operations Research, and Artificial Intelligence / Machine Learning helped todevelop targeting strategies and detect opponents’ attempts to disrupt. We note how thesemethods could also be used to disrupt defense and intelligence networks and possiblymisdirect lethal force, and draw some lessons learned about how to increase national andinternational security.

KEYWORDS: Information security, information tampering, pattern analysis, political tricks,social media messaging, village stability operations, command and control

ABOUT THE PRESENTER
Douglas A. Samuelson is President and Chief Scientist of his own consulting company,InfoLogix, Inc., in Annandale, Virginia. He has been a Federal policy analyst, consultant,successful high-tech entrepreneur and executive, patented inventor, political campaignprofessional, and an adjunct and research faculty member at several universities. Hisconsulting and research focus on risk-advised decision-making, machine learning,cybersecurity, wargaming, health care policy, and disaster response and preparedness. Heholds a doctorate in Operations Research from The George Washington University.

A PERSONAL NOTE ABOUT THE PRESENTER, BY IGNACY KALISZEWSKI
In the official biography of Doug Samuelson, quoted above, there is no mention on his sideactivity which nonetheless brought him probably the widest recognition - a columnist. Longbefore I had a chance to say 'Hello' to him, I had been a keen reader of his column titled'ORacle' in The Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORMS)quarterly bulletin 'OR/MS Today'. Many OR/MS people readily admit they read each issue bystarting from his one-page feature stories about our profession ups and downs, sense, nosense, and nonsense(s). He kept writing his column for twenty years or so, entertainingpeople, amusing them, but at the end, making them to reflect. The Library of the Systems Research Research Institute maintains an extensive collection ofthe bulletin issues.

Conference ORMA (MZBO) will be held on October 24-26, 2021,
(2020-10-30)

Please be advised that due to COVID-19, the date of the The 39th Conference "Operations Research - Methods and Applications" In honour of Professor Władysław Bukietyński - ORMA 2020 (XXXIX Ogólnopolska Konferencja Naukowa im. Prof. Władysława Bukietyńskiego: Metody i Zastosowania Badań Operacyjnych’20 – MZBO 2020) has been postponed until next year. The conference will be held on October 24-26, 2021 at the Palace in Bedlewo on the edge of Chlapowszczyzna - the cradle of modern Polish agriculture.

Despite the right direction of Polish science towards the forum of international scientific exchange, there is still a strong need for scientific discussion between Polish research centers. This is the only way to create Polish research teams accepting of course the participation of interested foreign collaborators. The formation of such teams meets the expectations of the sovereignty of Polish science. Such a discussion is to be served by the MZBO 2020 conference, the purpose of which is to present the most complete possible panorama of Polish scientific considerations on operational research and its applications in economic theory and practice. An important goal of this conference is also to create a forum for young theoreticians and practitioners of the discipline to exchange ideas on the latest achievements in methods and modern applications of operations research. The future of Polish operations research lies in the hands and minds of these adepts of science. Hence, the presentations of young scientists are highly anticipated.

The organizer of the conference is the WSB University in Poznan. I am also pleased to inform you that our conference was held under the honorary patronage of the Rector of WSB University in Poznan and the patronage of the Statistics and Econometrics Committee of the Polish Academy of Sciences.

More information about the conference can be found on the website http://www.mzbo2020.pl/

We will be very pleased with your participation in the Conference.

Yours faithfully,
Krzysztof Piasecki
Chairman of the Scientific Committee of the Conference
