OR63 Online: Creating a better future
14 - 16 September 2021
Connecting OR professionals from across the world to share, discuss and network
Deadline for submissions: EXTENDED 25 June 2021
Project Management (PM) has its roots in Operations Research. For decades, the two fields were hardly separable. With the rapid growth in using projects as means of running organizations, PM has extended to a multidisciplinary field with an extensive body of knowledge. Contemporary PM has attracted interests from a wide range of disciplines, incluing OR, and has benefited from their contributions.
OR’s special interests and focus on modelling certain aspects of projects have been widely published and presented, particularly in non-PM journals and conferences. Previous OR conferences had seen these integrated within different streams.
OR63 (to the best of our knowledge) is the first time that Project Management appears as a standalone stream. This would be a unique opportunity for further extending and exploring the two fields’ historical collaborations in the light of what is now quite frequently referred to as ‘contemporary project management’ and research on it as ‘project studies’. Hope developing constructive conversations strengthens the collaboration, closes the gaps between their bodies of knowledge and ultimately suggests new areas of common interest.
We're now looking for project management and OR professionals, data scientists, professors, researchers, analysts, engineers, etc., to present at this event. Submit your 300-word presentation summary by the now extended deadline of the 25th of June to join our expert OR63 speakers!
Submissions deadline extended: 25 June 2021
The Contemporary PM stream aims at providing opportunities for discussing and linking the characteristics of the contemporary PM (as discussed in and by the PM community) with the OR developments most relevant and suitable for modelling such characteristics. We welcome novel talks and papers on fundamental subjects of applying OR in PM (rather than models and techniques for very specific aspects of projects, which could still fit other streams). Subjects could be on or around:
