Institute of Mathematics (IMA) and OR Society Conference
An Institute of Mathematics (IMA) and OR Society Conference on
Mathematics of Operational Research
Innovating Mathematics for New Industrial Challenges
Date: Thursday 20 - Friday 21 April 2017
Location: Aston University, Birmingham, UK
CALL FOR PAPERS AND POSTERS
The conference will aim to draw together the considerable community of researchers and practitioners who develop new mathematics of relevance to and which underpin applications in Operational Research (O.R.). It will take a comprehensive view, will showcase activity from across O.R. and will welcome both contributions which have a clear application focus as well as those which are theoretically driven.
Contributions will be expected to showcase both significant new mathematics and O.R. relevance. The conference will host plenaries from leading international experts.
- Professor Jacek Gondzio (University of Edinburgh)
- Professor Edward Kaplan (Yale School of Management)
- Guillermo Ortega (European Space Agency)
- Professor Bert Zwart (CWI Amsterdam)

Call for Posters: The poster session provides an opportunity for academics and practitioners to showcase their challenges and the latest developments across the academic-practitioner interface. We are inviting posters to showcase a problem you are working on, a challenge which you think could be solved by an academic-practitioner partnership, or a successful academic-practitioner collaboration. Posters may also be a general alternative to papers. Posters will be considered for the conference based on the submission of a 300 word abstract.
