Southeast Decision Sciences Institute Thirty-First Annual Meeting
February 21-23, 2001



Meeting Announcement: The Southeast Region of the Decision Sciences Institute will hold its 31st Annual Meeting at the Charlotte Hilton at University Place in Charlotte, North Carolina on February 21 - 23, 2001. Persons in business, government, and academia are invited to submit competitive papers, proposals for symposia, tutorials, and workshops on current topics in all areas of decision sciences.

Competitive Papers: Authors may submit competitive papers or abstracts for review. The submission of a competitive paper means the author certifies that the paper has not been copyrighted, published, or presented (or submitted for presentation) at another professional meeting. Anyone submitting a paper must intend to register for and attend the meeting to present the paper if it is accepted. Outstanding papers will be awarded in each track and recognized at the meeting luncheon.

Student Papers: Papers submitted in the student track (and thus the student paper competition) must be solely of student authorship. Such papers must be submitted directly to the Program Chairperson. The registration fee will be waived for students whose papers are accepted. Students will not be reimbursed for travel expenses by SE DSI. Student papers will be subject to the same review process as all papers. All student papers accepted by the referees will be scheduled on the program. Students who do not present their papers will not be eligible for awards. The judges will take the presentations into account in awarding the prizes. Presentation of the awards will be at the luncheon on February 23, 2001.

Symposia, Tutorials, and Workshops: If you wish to conduct a symposium, tutorial, or workshop, submit a summary of at least two pages on what you propose to do in your session and why it is of interest and importance to Institute members. Follow the guidelines below for submissions. You are allowed considerable latitude and flexibility as to content and conduct of these sessions. You must, however, provide your own participants (such as panel members) and any unusual equipment needs. All participants of symposia, tutorials, and workshops must register and attend the meeting.

Proceedings: The Southeast Region of the Decision Sciences Institute will publish a Proceedings containing all papers presented at the meeting as well as a summary of symposia, tutorials, and workshops. Publication in the Proceedings is subject to a strict set of standards and deadlines. Primary authors will receive instructions in early November. Papers will be limited to three mat sheets. The Proceedings Coordinator will accept additional pages if they are accompanied by a payment of fifty dollars ($50) per extra page.

Placement Service: A placement service will be provided at the meeting at no cost to the participants or employers. Placement information will be mailed to members of the Southeast Region. Others may contact the Placement Service Coordinator directly: Chris McCart, Dept. of Business Administration and Economics, Roanoke College, Salem, VA 24153

Volunteers: Anyone interested in participating in the program by serving as a referee, session chair, or discussant should contact the Program Chair by June 30, 2000.

Instructions for Contributors:
Submit four (4) typed, double-spaced copies of your paper or proposal. Abstracts should be a minimum of four pages. Failure to submit sufficient copies means your paper cannot be refereed and thus will not be accepted.
Each submission should include a separate title page with: (1) title of paper, (2) author(s), (3) affiliations and complete addresses, and (4) telephone number(s).
The main body of your submission should include the title, but not your name.
Include a stamped, self-addressed postcard with the name of your submission so the program chairperson may notify you that it was received.
Enclose a 3" X 5" card for each paper and author with name, affiliation, address, phone number, paper title, the appropriate track for your paper, and the individual to whom all correspondence should be directed. Include your E-Mail address if you have one.
All submissions are due by September 6, 2000. Notifications of acceptance or rejection will be mailed the week of November 8, 2000. Accepted papers will be due in final form by December 6, 2000 if they are to appear in the Proceedings.
Mail all papers and proposals to the Program Chairperson: Ina S. Markham, CIS/OM Program, MSC 0202, College of Business, James Madison University, Harrisonburg, VA 22807.
About Charlotte

In 1799, America's first major gold discovery was made in Charlotte: a 17 pound gold nugget that had been used as a doorstop. Locals and visitors have found gold in Charlotte ever since. Today, Charlotte is a fast-growing, dynamic and innovative city that is the nation's second-largest banking center. Along with its distinctive uptown skyscrapers, Charlotte is a community of pleasant tree-lined neighborhoods, parks, museums, theaters, restaurants, clubs and great shopping. So linger longer in the Queen City and discover what Southern hospitality is all about.

Plan on joining us in Charlotte, the Queen City, next spring.
