A window on the world of O.R.?
The “invisibility cloak” of science fiction is now fact, albeit with limitations. O.R. could claim to have had the power of invisibility for years, though not by desire; what we want is the opposite - a high-visibility jacket! Indeed, part of the mission of the OR Society is to help make our presence more visible. But perception involves both the observed and the observer. And all of us have open and hidden parts.

The OR Society

The Midlands OR Society (MORS) has been re-launched

The Midlands OR Society (MORS) has been reinvigorated and was re-launched on Tuesday 22nd May with a stimulating talk by OR Society President Geoff Royston on the practicalities of delivering OR that has impact.  The talk was held in the Club Room of the Old Joint Stock in central Birmingham. 

We are currently putting together a programme for 2012; details will appear on the MORS web page:  http://www.theorsociety.com/Pages/Regional/mors.aspx.

The next talk will be in mid-October by Andy Verity-Harrison (FICO) and Kevin Sheehy (Lanner) on the work they have being doing with other OR Society members for the RNLI, as part of OR in the Third Sector.

If you have any ideas for talks, events or what you would like from MORS please let us know.  Similarly, please get in touch with any member of the committee if you would like to meet up more informally for a meal or a drink between now and the next talk or if you’re interested in getting involved.
