We are pleased to invite you to attend the Department of Management Sciences seminar series in the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Waterloo!
Our seminar series often accommodates a variety of talks such as research-oriented, Ph.D. student, and practitioner-oriented talks. Topics in the series include, among other, energy systems, optimisation, logistics and supply chain, healthcare, information and communications technologies, and socio-technical systems.
The audience, usually 15-25 in size, is primarily composed of faculty and graduate students from the Department of Management Sciences, although other faculty, students and industrial professionals frequently attend.
Visit our Events page for a full listing of upcoming seminars, and details.
The department seminar series' coordinator is Kejia Zhu.
Seminars are typically held on Mondays from 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. in CPH 4335, unless otherwise noted.
