    "Making an Impact" (MAI) is intended to make the conference attractive to practitioners who may not otherwise attend, by providing participatory sessions aimed at helping them to do a better job. It will include an academic-practitioner panel discussion, tutorials and seminars aimed at anybody who is engaged in the practical application of OR. The organising team is keen to integrate it with the rest of the conference, so that those streams and sessions that can be of practitioner interest are highlighted, and people participating in those streams and sessions are also aware of MAI. Presenters can lead an MAI activity (for example running a seminar on some practical aspect of OR) in addition to presenting their own paper, so if you think you can contribute, please do get in touch. 


    For more information and to get involved please see the webpage




    The Conference Chairs are glad to inform you about excellent Special Issues, presented at, where guest editors call for papers.
