Biography: Yves Crama is Full Professor of operations research at HEC Liège - Management School of the University of Liège, which he headed from 2004 to 2008. He holds a PhD in operations research from Rutgers University, USA. Before joining the University of Liège, he taught at the University of Delaware (USA) and at Maastricht University (the Netherlands). More recently, he has held visiting positions at the University of British Columbia (Vancouver), at KU Leuven (Belgium), and in Grenoble (France). He is interested in the theory and applications of operations research, in particular in methodological developments in combinatorial optimization and in discrete mathematics, as well as in their applications to production management, logistics and finance. He has published over 80 scientific articles and several books in this area. (With Alwin Oerlemans and Frits Spieksma) he has coauthored a monograph entitled Production Planning in Automated Manufacturing (Springer-Verlag, Berlin, 1996), and (with Peter L. Hammer) two books devoted to the study of boolean functions and their applications (Cambridge University Press, New York). He is one of the Editors-in-chief of the scientific journal 4OR (Springer), and he is on the editorial board of the journals Discrete Applied Mathematics (Elsevier) and Discrete Optimization (Elsevier). Among other honors, he was awarded the Francqui Chair at KU Leuven in 2009-2010 and he was the Keynote Distinguished Lecturer of the International Federation of Operations Research Societies at the INFORMS 2011 Annual Meeting in Charlotte (USA). He is a partner and member of the board of N-Side, a fast-growing university spin-off active in the development of industrial decision-making support systems, and he was a founding partner of Gambit Financial Solutions, a successful fintech spin-off company.
