Following on from a similar event last year, a number of PhD students will give brief overviews of their research in Operational Research areas. These will cover a range of topics including health, scheduling and routing problems and are based on their ongoing postgraduate research. There will also be an opportunity to meet new students on the MSc in Applied Statistics and Operational Research run by the Cardiff Mathematics Department.
The meeting will be held at the Mathematics Institute, Cardiff University. Tea and coffee will be available from 5.30pm in the Internet Café which is just inside the main entrance to the Mathematics Institute. The talks will commence at 5.45pm in room M/0.40 (ground floor).
The talks will last approximately one hour after which we will go to a nearby hostelry (venue to be decided) -- for networking and free refreshments (meal and drink).
As we need to book the food beforehand, please let me know by the 1st of October if you plan to attend. Also please let me know if you are a vegetarian or have other dietary requirements.
