President’s Message

Manus (Johnny) Rungtusanatham

Dear Colleagues:

I write, as I begin my term as President of DSI, for two reasons.  One to encourage you to read the latest version of Decision Line, which highlights the progress that DSI has made under the Board leadership of my predecessor, Professor Jeet Gupta from the University of Alabama in Huntsville. Two, to share the agenda for DSI in the upcoming year.
