Upcoming Events

Workshop on Future Research Directions in Demand Management

Venue: The Shard, London
Speaker: Various
Date: 26 Sep 2017

Dr Arne Strauss (University of Warwick) and Dr Christine Currie (University of Southampton) organise a one-day workshop in The Shard in central London to identify future research directions in the intersection of demand management (dynamic pricing, choice modelling, personalisation etc), privacy preservation and related fields against the background of a changing environment (as reflected e.g. by the sharing economy, smart grids, private data aggregators, General Data Protection Regulation, e-Privacy Regulation etc).

The workshop will include presentations from experts and users in the area and facilitated discussions to develop research questions.

By participating in this event, you will be able to:
• Network with academic researchers from operational research, digital marketing, behavioural science, computer science, service systems, law or statistics as well as users and industrial researchers from companies that use demand management.
• Identify the research challenges in demand management which would benefit from meaningful collaboration across these disciplines.
• Find consortium partners for future funding bids, such as the upcoming EPSRC call Trust, Identity, Privacy and Security (TIPS) 2.0.

The workshop features a keynote presentation:

Keynote speaker: Prof Graham Cormode, Computer Science, University of Warwick Title: The confounding problem of private data release Abstract: The demands to make data available are growing ever louder, including open data initiatives and “data monetization”. But the problem of doing so without disclosing confidential information is a subtle and difficult one. Is “private data release” an oxymoron? This talk aims to delve into the motivations of data release, explore the challenges, and outline some of the current statistical approaches developed in response to this confounding problem.

Maths is FUNdamental - The OR Society Volunteer Training

Venue: Hanham Woods Academy, Bristol
Speaker: Sophie Parker
Date: 09 Oct 2017

Think maths is important but not sure how you could promote it? Want to inspire students at school but not sure where to start? We’re running volunteer training in Bristol and we’d love you to join us. The training will be fun, engaging and highly interactive – it’s the type of session we want you to remember and enjoy, as you’ll soon be running them for others. We’ll give you a brief overview of what we do, and then let you have a play with either LEGO, a board game or theatre seats! We promise it’ll be lots of fun (and will be a great opportunity to network with other volunteers). This session will equip you with the skills to run these workshops in schools and colleges.
