Conferences - Introduction

The OR Society organises several conferences every year. Listed below is general information on the conferences organised.

The Annual Conference

This main event is usually held in early September and attracts over 300 delegates from the UK, Europe, North America and elsewhere. The most recent annual conference was OR56, (held in September 2014) and the next is EURO2015, Glasgow, July 2015 – an international O.R. conference that will incorporate aspects of the OR Society Conference. The three-day conference programme contains a mixture of plenary sessions given by keynote speakers and parallel streams, covering all aspects of O.R. which are of interest to both the Academic and Practitioner delegates. The one-day Making an Impact stream is specifically tailored to be of interest to practitioners. In addition there is a comprehensive social programme.

The YoungOR Conference

Every other year the Society holds this conference, intended for academics and practitioners with up to ten years' experience in O.R. The most recent was YoungOR 18 and the next is YoungOR 19 which takes place in September 2015. It gives younger members of the profession an opportunity to present their work in a non-threatening environment to an audience of their peers. There are plenary talks by keynote speakers, interspersed with parallel streams which are of interest to both the Academic and Practitioner delegates and there is a comprehensive evening social programme.

Other conferences

Each year, the Society holds a variety of conferences on specialist topics. Future conferences include the Annual Analytics Summit 2015.

Recent conferences include: a two day Knowledge and Information Management Conference (KIM2013 Knowledge and Information Management Conference) 4 -5 June 2013, a one day Analytics seminar on 30 April 2014 (Developments in Analytics and Big Data – Adding Value), a two-day Simulation Workshop (Simulation Workshop 2014) and a European Conference on Intelligent Management Systems in Operations (IMSIO 5) in July 2013.
