- Introduction to openmod and openmod workshops (see also this guide to holding a workshop - it’s not that much effort!)
- Discussion of any considerations specific to North America? (e.g. long travel distances, focus on data rather than software?)
- Is there interest in holding a first small workshop (e.g. 20-30 people)?
- Discuss potential volunteers to hold the first workshop. Could be held near other events, e.g. INFORMS 2019 in Seattle October 20-23, or the ESIG Fall Workshop in Charlotte, NC, October 28-30.
- Any other open points.
