OR60 'Anniversary' Conference

11 – 13 SEPTEMBER 2018

   

Lancaster University, Bailrigg, Lancaster. LA1 4YW UK

 



Planning for OR60, our next OR Society Annual Conference, is already underway and will take place at the historic Lancaster University.

Lancaster University was established by Royal Charter in 1964, one of seven new universities created in the 1960s.  Operational Research was one of the founding departments, the first in the country. The first professor was Pat Rivett, President of the OR Society at the time of his appointment.  So, it is particularly significant that the conference returns to Lancaster to celebrate the Diamond anniversary.  

The campus buildings are arranged around a central walkway known as the Spine, which is connected to a central plaza, named Alexandra Square in honour of its first chancellor, Princess Alexandra. The accommodation and conference venues are all within 100 yards of each other.

The University is set in 560 acres of stunning woodland which includes, we are told, 290 species of plants!  Less than three miles away lies the historic city of Lancaster, with a medieval castle, Georgian architecture and much more to marvel at.  Williamson Park, one of the city's best kept secrets, contains a stunning ornate butterfly house and for those who fancy travelling a little further, lies England’s largest National Park, the Lake District.

Lancaster University lies approximately three miles south of the City of Lancaster. The campus is easily accessible via road, rail and bicycle and is within 70 miles of Manchester's International Airport.
