INFORMS 2009 and green O.R.

As you might expect, there is a lot of green O.R. content at the 2009 INFORMS annual meeting. Three of the plenaries touch on sustainability:

Sterman, known in part for his work at the intersection of system dynamics and nonlinear dynamics & chaos including key studies of the beer game, has recently turned his attention to climate modeling.

The INFORMS Energy & Natural Resources (ENRE) section has compiled a list of energy-related talks, available here (pdf). Those are likely not all sustainability-related, though some will be. A search of the conference program will yield talks on topics beyond energy and natural resources, such as closed loop supply chains, emissions regulation, green building, etc.

I am not at the meeting, but if you are, and would like to guest- or cross-post some impressions of the green O.R. you see there, let me know.
