37th International Symposium on Military Operational Research


37th International Symposium on Military Operational Research (37 ISMOR) is CANCELLED

21-24 July 2020

Royal Holloway, University of London, Egham, Surrey, TW20 0EX, UK

It is with great regret that we have taken the difficult decision to cancel 37 ISMOR.

The current Coronavirus situation and the uncertainty which we all face over the next few months would undoubtedly have impacted the planning and preparation for both the ISMOR committee and delegates.  The ability of potential delegates to commit to attending during the current uncertainties coupled with the risk of late cancellation was considered too great.

Hopefully making an early decision means any inconvenience is minimised. Anyone that has already booked a place for 37 ISMOR will receive a full refund.

We look forward to seeing you when ISMOR returns in the summer of 2021. The provisional date for 38 ISMOR is 20-23 July 2021

Meanwhile, we at ISMOR and the OR Society are considering what opportunities there may be to keep in touch with Military OR studies and colleagues over the next year
