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.

YOR18 – OR – A Twenty Twenty Vision
The 18th Young [to] OR Conference got off to a great start with the plenary session given by the President of the OR Society, Dr Geoff Royston. Antuela Tako, the chair of the organising committee, began the proceedings by telling the audience what had been planned for them and how to find out more about streams.

OR Society

Goodbye to Ruth Kaufman

This month we have to say goodbye to Ruth Kaufman, OBE, FORS, FIMA, CSCI, after two highly eventful - and for those on the General council - fun-packed years.

Of course, she will still be around as Past-President for the next year, to no doubt whip us into action and pass on her knowledge to John Hopes, who moves up from President-elect to President. This month is also Louise’s last regular contribution under the banner of Y2OR. We have thoroughly enjoyed every one of her fifty plus articles. We are also having to say goodbye to Gill who has served the OR Society well for more than 43 years. The office will not be the same without her.
