40 years of engagement with ‘social’ and ‘management’ science, including OR ‘hard’ and ‘soft’
This main event is usually held in early September and attracts over 350 delegates from the UK, Europe, North America and elsewhere. The most recent annual conference was the OR60 Anniversary Conference, in September 2018 which was hugely successful attracting around 500 delegates.
The three-day conference programme contains a mixture of plenary sessions given by keynote speakers and parallel streams, covering all aspects of OR 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, including tours, day trips, dinners and even the occasional ceilidh.
