Joining MAS

In addition to networking opportunities and publications, MAS sponsors a stream of sessions and a MAS reception at all INFORMS annual meetings to provide MAS members with an opportunity to share their work with a larger, global audience in an unclassified setting. Additionally, MAS co-hosts separate symposiums around the U.S. approximately every two years that focus on a specific theme. See the News & Events menu link for more information. All members are encouraged to attend our meetings and to participate in all MAS activities.

If you're interested in military operations research or related fields, become part of an active network of global practitioners and academicians by joining MAS!
