IMA and OR Society Conference on Mathematics of Operational Research


Innovating mathematics for new industrial challenges

 

Programme (pdf)

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.

Invited Speakers

Professor Jacek Gondzio (University of Edinburgh)
Continuation in Optimization: From interior point methods to Big Data 
Professor Edward Kaplan (Yale School of Management)
Terror queue staffing and the detection of terror plots
Celia Yabar Valles (European Space Agency) Note change in speaker
