PROS Data Scientist to Address AGIFORS Revenue Management Conference

HOUSTON, May 11, 2016 – PROS® (NYSE: PRO), the revenue and profit realization company, today announced that Principal Research Scientist Darius Walczak, Ph.D., and data scientist Ang Li, Ph.D., have been selected to deliver an address at the AGIFORS Revenue Management Conference. The event, hosted this year in Frankfurt, Germany, will be held May 18-20 at the Frankfurt Marriott Hotel.

The presentation by Walczak and Li – A Capacity-Sharing Model with Movable Curtain – is based on their research conducted in conjunction with PROS airline customers. They will introduce a revenue management model in which an aircraft’s seating capacity is shared between business and economy compartments. More specifically, the respective compartment capacities can be adjusted by means of curtain installed shortly before departure, depending on demand realization, and economy passengers can be dynamically considered for accommodation in the business compartment, which leads to better utilization of the aircraft’s capacity and improved profitability.

AGIFORS – the Airline Group of the International Federation of Operational Research Societies – is a professional society dedicated to the advancement and application of operational research for the airline industry. The membership consists of operational research professionals employed by civil airlines and related industries, and correspondents keenly interested in the application of operational research to aviation problems.

We look forward to sharing our next-generation capabilities.”

Walczak serves as Revenue Management Chair of the Revenue Management and Pricing (RMP) Section of INFORMS, the Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences.
