IEOR is having a design contest to help IEOR create t-shirts for CalDay 2016, UC Berkeley's annual open house. Participants will create a design for the front and back of the shirt. T-shirt designs may focus on any aspect of IEOR (What is it, who is involved, how is it used, how it can change the world, etc.)
All IEOR/ORMS undergraduate and graduate students are eligible to participate.
Prof. Ikhlaq Sidhu of IEOR and Chief Scientist/Founding Director of the Sutardja Center has been invited to serve on International Advisory Board (IAB) of the Clover Engineering 2030 Project to develop the New Engineering Economy of Chile. The board consists of faculty, deans, and innovation leaders at MIT, Texas A&M, Columbia, top global universities, entrepreneurs, and political leaders. The 2016 Advisory Board meeting kicks of discussion starting on January 3 in Santiago, Chile.
Prynt, a San Francisco-based startup founded by two graduates of a Berkeley Engineering entrepreneurship program, is bringing instant print photography to smartphones. The grads designed a smartphone case equipped with a built-in mini-printer, for printing digital photos on the go.
The founders, Clément Perrot and David Zhang, were schoolmates at École Polytechnique, France’s premier science and engineering university, but it wasn’t until they met again at Berkeley in 2013 that they really got to know each other.

How prepared are you? No one knows when the next big earthquake will hit California, but most can agree on one thing — it's going to happen at some point. And when it does, it has the potential to cost billions of dollars and shatter the lives of millions of Californians.
Happy holidays to you and your family! — from Berkeley Industrial Engineering & Operations Research
Congratulations to Professor Righter for being named program co-chair for the European Conference on Queueing Theory (ECQT). The goal of the conference is to connect scientists and technicians to facilitate the exchange of ideas, theory, and applications in Queueing Theory — the mathematical study of waiting times (queues).
