Inaugural OR Society Early Career Researcher (ECR) Workshop
September 9-10 2018, Lancaster University

Plenary Speaker: Professor Anna Nagurney, Isenberg School of Management, University of Massachusetts, Amherst.

The recently established Research Panel of the OR Society is organising an ECR workshop during the two days immediately preceding the Society’s national conference (OR60) and in the same location (Lancaster University). This will be an exciting opportunity for ECRs in OR to network with their peers, articulate their personal research ambitions in a supportive environment and to learn more about key opportunities available to them in establishing successful research careers. In addition to the benefits of the workshop itself, it is the Research Panel’s hope that this event will result in a more strongly connected ECR network within OR going forward with greater opportunity for peer-to-peer support.

We are particularly delighted that Anna Nagurney has agreed to speak at the workshop prior to her plenary at OR60. Anna is an inspiring example of someone whose research has married scientific depth with real world impact.

With support from the Society, it has proved possible to keep workshop costs down to a registration fee of £65, with an additional fee of £57.60 for one night’s accommodation if needed. Should workshop participants choose to stay on for OR60 there will be favourable rates for conference attendance.

Workshop numbers are limited to 40. For this inaugural invent we are asking aspiring participants to complete a simple application form. Applications are welcome from finishing PhD students, postdocs and academics with up to five years of service from first appointment. The application deadline is May 31st 2018. The application form may be downloaded at:

This is a new venture. Any questions concerning the workshop programme should be addressed to the programme chair Kevin Glazebrook ( while those concerning practical arrangements should go to Charlene Timewell ( .

Workshop Programme Committee: Kerem Akartunali (Strathclyde), Edmund Burke (QMUL), Christine Currie (Southampton), Kevin Glazebrook (Lancaster), Paul Harper (Cardiff).
