Leading Operations Research Conference Has Strong Contributions from Telfer School

Leading scientists in operations research will be in Ottawa May 26-28 to attend the largest gathering of its kind in Canada. The 56th Canadian Operational Research Society Conference, featuring more than 300 presentations from Canadian and international researchers, “is really representative of the variety of approaches being applied to operations problems in a wide range of contexts including transportation, telecommunications, logistics, health care, finance, energy, and the environment,” said Jonathan Patrick, Associate Professor at the Telfer School of Management and one of the conference program co-chairs. The different research tools and methodologies reflect the influence that computer science, mathematics, engineering and the management sciences are having on operational research, he explained. “The common thread is in the effort to design new approaches that can lead to improvements like better use of evidence in decision-making, more efficient organizational processes and workflow, or a reduction in the time and cost needed to achieve work outputs.” Read more ›
