The International Symposium on Operational Research is running for the 34th time this summer.  ISMOR is the world's foremost international conference on defence operational research. Its purpose is to foster excellence in analysis as applied to defence and security.

So if defence is your business, working in a national or international government department or agency, in a consultancy or industry, then ISMOR provides you with a forum to present to your peers, learn about new techniques, and case studies used in a wide range of applications. Participants from all nations are welcome; recent symposia have included delegates from every continent.

The ISMOR organising committee seek papers and posters on all aspects of the application of analysis to defence and security. We welcome practice-based papers that explore, demonstrate, and shed light on our most challenging issues. We are particularly encouraging papers to support the over-arching theme of “Keeping Analysis Fit for Purpose”, examining the conduct of high-impact analysis in a complex and resource-constrained world. Topics of interest include

- Making every penny count’ – covering issues of resource limitation, affordability and value-for-money

- Dealing with the complex contemporary operating environment – analysis addressing activities such as hybrid warfare and cyber security

- Harnessing advances in technology for the benefit of analysis – covering areas such as Big Data, advanced analytics, modelling and simulation architectures.

The UK Operational Research Society co-sponsors ISMOR, and the US Military Operations Research Society provides strong support.
