Upcoming Events

Beale Lecture (Operational Research Society)

Venue: London UK. SW1Y 5AG
Speaker: Prof. Mike Jackson and Dr Itamar Megiddo
Date: 21 Feb 2019

Thursday 21 February 2019

The Royal Society, 6-9 Carlton House Terrace, London. SW1Y 5AG

2.00pm Registration and refreshments

Lectures start at 2.30pm

The OR Society are pleased to announce this open event which begins with a short talk from our 2016 PhD winner, Itamar Megiddo, followed by a talk from our main speaker and 2017 Beale Medal award winner, Mike C. Jackson OBE.

Beale Lecture is open to members and non-members alike. The OR Society’s Beale Medal is awarded each year in memory of the late Martin Beale. It gives formal recognition to a sustained contribution over many years to the theory, practice, or philosophy of operational research (OR) in the UK, or to some combination of those areas.

NATCOR Course - Stochastic Modelling

Venue: Lancaster University
Speaker: Various
Date: 01 - 05 Apr 2019

Stochastic Modelling is concerned with uncertainty. Many activities in real-life situations are not deterministic in nature, but rather have a probabilistic element attached to them. The Operational Research literature abounds with applications of Stochastic Modelling, with Healthcare, Transport, Communications, and Finance being just a few examples. This course will present some of the theory behind such modelling processes, but consideration will also be given to applications by means of case studies.

New to OR 2019 (Operational Research Society)

Venue: Birmingham UK. B4 7ET
Speaker: Various
Date: 10 - 11 Apr 2019

Conference Aston Meeting Suites (CAMS) at Aston University Business School, Aston Triangle, Birmingham. B4 7ET

Less than Ten Years in OR? Here’s your custom-made conference.

‘New to OR’ is a biennial conference purposely designed to relate not to age, but to experience – your experience! This is the conference for academics and practitioners whose careers in operational research span 10 years or fewer.

Here are five good reasons why you should attend, present a paper or even run a stream:

  • Streams will include Analytics, AI, Big Data, Sustainability in OR and a range of more conventional hard OR and soft OR methods. Application-oriented presentations and case studies in areas such as health and defence are also expected.
  • Promote your skills and organisation – give a case study presentation. Discuss recent projects with those who use OR techniques in practice.
  • Expand your OR toolkit – learn new techniques for career development.
  • Improve your OR network – meet like-minded professionals in a perfect environment.
  • Be inspired – make links between techniques and applications and apply them to your everyday work!

Joint IMA & ORS 2nd Conf. on Mathematics of OR

Venue: Birmingham UK. B4 7ET
Speaker: Various
Date: 25 - 26 Apr 2019

Innovating Mathematics for New Industrial Challenges

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.

Analytics Summit (Operational Research Society)

Venue: London UK. WC2R OBL
Speaker: Various
Date: 13 Jun 2019

Brought to you by The OR Society in association with the Royal Statistical Society, the Analytics Summit brings together speakers and exhibitors from the very cutting edge of analytics to deliver a one-day event that is a one-stop shop for learning about how big data & analytics are shaping the future of organisational decision making. Filled with case studies, new innovations, and strategies on how to turn data to effective decisions the Analytics Summit is an event not to be missed. So join us on 13 June 2019 and keep up to date by visiting us here or on Twitter (#AS19).

NATCOR Course - Simulation

Venue: Loughborough University
Speaker: Various
Date: 01 - 05 Jul 2019

Simulation is one of the most widely used operational research techniques. It involves the development of an imitation on a computer of the system under study, followed by experimentation to understand and investigate improvements to the system. This course provides an understanding of simulation, with a focus on the mathematical and statistical principles of stochastic simulation modelling. The main technique of interest is discrete-event simulation, although other simulation techniques will be introduced.

NATCOR Course - Combinatorial Optimisation

Venue: University of Southampton
Speaker: Various
Date: 02 - 06 Sep 2019

Combinatorial optimisation problems typically involve finding the best arrangement, ordering, or selection of objects.  There are numerous applications in Operational Research including scheduling of orders on machines in production industries, routing of vehicles to deliver goods to customers, and assigning of personnel such as nurses or airline crew to work periods.  This course provides the main approaches and techniques required to tackle combinatorial optimisation problems.  The main topics include computational complexity, types of algorithms, optimisation problems in networks, branch-and-cut, and branch-and-price.

OR61 Annual Conf. (Operational Research Society)

Venue: Kent UK. CT2 7NZ
Speaker: Various
Date: 03 - 05 Sep 2019

3-5 September 2019

University of Kent

Now in its 61st year, the conference picks up momentum from the 2018 diamond anniversary which saw a record number of delegates in attendance. Whether you work as a practitioner or an academic, OR61 is the place to come and learn about how OR and analytics are transforming the workplace through delivering productivity improvements.

This must-attend conference also promotes debate and future thinking to focus the OR profession on how it needs to evolve to deliver benefits to business, the economy and wider society.
