Purpose of the Workshop

Suresh Sethi, Ashbel Smith Professor and Director of Center for Intelligent Supply Networks at University of Texas at Dallas, has made fundamental contributions in a number of disciplines including operations management, finance, marketing, operations research, industrial engineering, and optimal control.

Suresh Sethi will celebrate his 60th birthday in 2005. To duly celebrate this event, we are organizing a workshop in Aix en Provence, France, June 2-6, 2005. All friends and colleagues of Professor Sethi are cordially invited to participate. There will be an interesting social and scientific program with presentations from some of his former students and co-workers on various topics of optimal control, dynamic games, and more generally operations research with applications in operations management, finance, marketing, industrial engineering, etc.

It would be Suresh’s great pleasure, and our own, if you attended.
