Public Lectures

The Society organises two annual lectures on important matters - the Beale lectures and the Blacket lectures. Named after important early members of the Society, they attract large audiences of the general public as well as members. When resources permit, our lectures are recorded so we can share them with our members and supporters who can’t physically make it to the events.

Blackett Memorial Lecture

Since 1975 the Operational Research Society's Annual Lecture has been known as the Blackett Memorial Lecture in honour of Patrick, Lord Blackett. A physicist, Nobel prizewinner and one-time president of the Royal Society, Blackett was one of the pioneers of Operational Research (O.R.) during World War 2, when he advocated the employment of scientists to advise on matters of strategy and tactics. See more about the Blackett Lecture.

Beale Lecture

The Beale Lecture is given by the previous Beale Medal Award winner. The OR Society's Beale Medal is awarded each year in memory of the late Martin Beale. It gives formal recognition to a sustained contribution over many years to the theory, practice, or philosophy of O.R. in the UK, or to some combination of those areas. See more about the Beale Lecture.
