Invitation | To attend online launch of the Public Systems Planning and Optimization (PSPO) Symposium organized by IIT Delhi
We are delighted to announce our Symposium on the Public Systems Planning and Optimization (PSPO) chaired by Prof. S. G. Deshmukh and
Prof. Nomesh Bolia at IIT Delhi.
We cordially invite you to attend the ONLINE launch of the symposium on December 6, 2021 at 5 PM. The keynote will be delivered by Prof. Sanjeev
Deshmukh, renowned Indian researcher and Deputy Director (Operations) at IIT Delhi and Chief Guest Address by Shri V. Srinivas, Director General,
National Centre for Good Governance (NCGG).
Public Systems (also known as social welfare systems) are established to provide basic levels of well being to the citizens. These systems include programs such as food and cash assistance, employment schemes and systems for law & order, public health, and transport. There is immense scope possible in doing practice driven & inspired research on such systems in the framework of Operations Research & Analytics. A combination of government stakeholders and OR researchers/professionals can work wonders for the performance of such systems.
Examples of such research abound globally, with several leading to a tremendous impact on citizens’ lives and system performance. The Government Operational Research Service, which employs 600+ trained Operations Research (OR) professionals in practically every department of the UK government is another shining example of the possible collaboration and impact.
The objective of the symposium is to train, empower young researchers as well as connect all relevant stakeholders (from government, academia) to
create a vibrant community that constantly strives for better public systems.
The symposium would consist of weekly webinar presentations and discussion on research articles/papers by various researchers broadly
working on Public Systems, as well as 3-6 (in a year) plenary sessions delivered by practitioners (primarily those in the government) and
nationally / internationally renowned researchers. We are confident that this symposium would enable knowledge sharing between key stakeholders
working on Public Systems across the country as well as globally.
