2nd IMA & OR Society Conference on Mathematics of Operational Research

Innovating Mathematics for New Industrial Challenges

Date: Thursday 25 - Friday 26 April 2019
Location: Aston University, Aston Street, Birmingham, B4 7DU, UK

The conference will aim to draw together the considerable community of researchers and practitioners who develop new mathematics of relevance to and which underpin applications in Operational Research (O.R.).  It will take a comprehensive view, will showcase activity from across O.R. and will welcome both contributions which have a clear application focus as well as those which are theoretically driven.

Contributions will be expected to showcase both significant new mathematics and O.R. relevance.  The conference will host plenaries from leading international experts.

Invited Speakers

Jeremy Bradley (Royal Mail)
Shane Henderson (Cornell University)
Rob Solly (Dstl)
Sven Leyffer (Argonne National Laboratory, Chicago)
Milan Vojnovic (LSE)
