South Wales OR Discussion Society (SWORDS)


This regional society meets regularly to enable members to network with other operational researchers in their local area and to expand their knowledge of OR in breadth and depth.

We put on meetings, works visits and other events, which are generally free admission and open to all, giving members the freedom to invite clients and others outside OR who are interested in the subject.
