Conference Announcement

YoungOR 19 is the conference for those whose Operational Research (O.R.) careers are less than ten years in duration.

This is a biennial conference for academics and practitioners with up to ten years of experience in O.R.  Attendees have the opportunity to present their work to peers in a supportive environment, while learning about how O.R. techniques have been used in a wide range of applications.  Parallel streams of talks are interspersed with presentations from plenary and keynote speakers.  

Providing a great opportunity to meet fellow O.R. practitioners, the conference also facilitates sharing of best practice and enables attendees to learn about new areas where O.R. can make an impact.  In 2013 there were 18 streams with approximately 100 papers covering topics including analytics, consultancy, disaster management, manufacturing, to name but a few and including tutorials on MCDA and various workshops.

If you’d like to put your mark on YoungOR 19 and run a stream or sponsor or exhibit, please contact our Conference Chair, Vicky Forman, at or Hilary Wilkes at
