IMA and OR Society Conference on Mathematics of Operational Research


,

Innovating mathematics for new industrial challenges

Call for Papers and Posters

The conference will aim to draw together the considerable community of researchers and practitioners who develop new mathematics of relevance to and which underpin  applications in Operational Research (OR).  It will take a comprehensive view, will showcase activity from across OR, and will welcome both contributions which have a clear application focus as well as those which are theoretically driven.

Contributions will be expected to showcase both significant new mathematics and OR relevance.  The conference will host plenaries from leading international experts.

Professor Jacek Gondzio (University of Edinburgh)
Professor Edward Kaplan (Yale School of Management)
