Every year in March, our department holds a seminar in remembrance of Prof.Dr. Halim Doğrusöz. This year's seminar will be on March 29th (Friday), at 4pm, in the Halim Doğrusöz Auditorum (IE03).

Our guest speaker is Associate Professor Dr. Deniz Tunçalp of İTÜ  Management Engineering Department.

Science, Engineering or Consulting: The Role of Operations  Research/Management Science in Tackling Sustainability Problems in the  Last Twenty Years

This talk explores the multifaceted role of Operations  Research/Management Science (OR/MS) in addressing sustainability  problems through various analytical perspectives. The study presented  in this talk employs a content analysis method akin to Denizel,  Üsdiken and Tunçalp (2003), to dissect and categorize the existing  OR/MS literature tackling sustainability problems into scientific,  engineering, and consulting perspectives. It aims to uncover how OR/MS  has shifted its focus towards sustainability issues in the last 20  years and to determine which of these three perspectives predominates  in current research. The results provide insights into the evolution  of OR/MS methodologies and their application in tackling complex  sustainability problems. Results also identify how the field adapts to  global environmental and social imperatives.

Dr. Deniz Tunçalp is an Associate Professor at the Management  Engineering Department at Istanbul Technical University. He researches  management and organizations, focusing on organization theory,  entrepreneurship, and sustainability. He received his bachelor's  degree from the Middle East Technical University (METU) Industrial  Engineering Department. He obtained his master's degrees from the same  department at METU, METU Informatics Institute, and the Law Department  of Istanbul Bilgi University. He serves as an area editor for the  Management Decision Journal and the Journal of Management and  Organization Studies (TR). He is also an editorial board member for  the Journal of Global Information Technology Management.

We cordially invite you to join us in this seminar.
