OR62 is the UK’s biggest conference of OR/analytics professionals, academics and practitioners. It will be packed with sessions aimed at helping everybody to become more successful in making an impact in their work. These sessions are designed to meet the needs and interests of practitioners as well as academics and are now a regular feature of our national conference but this year, based on previous feedback, will include more interactive sessions on key topics, all designed to make you personally more effective and your work to have a greater impact.

Most sessions are held on the middle day of the conference (Wednesday), which also includes the President’s Medal presentations, which showcase the best applications of OR and Analytics practice. Included in our programme will be workshops and tutorials introducing the latest techniques in the market, their applications, as well as selected technical and consultancy areas to extend and develop your practice.
