Society Groups


There are a number of groups within The OR Society to enable people to get together, keep up-to-date, share ideas and develop knowledge on specific themes.

Regional Societies

Our regional societies have the status of branches of the national society. To enable members to network with other operational researchers in their area and to expand their knowledge in OR, the various regional societies organise meetings, works visits and other events.

Special Interest Groups

We have special interest groups (SIGs) covering particular topics, such as specific methods or application areas. See the list of SIG subjects and find information about meetings, exchange of ideas and blogs.
