Message > EWG Practice of OR: 2 events
Le 06/11/2017 par Sophie Demassey :
The EWG-POR aims to build a network of O.R. workers across Europe, to enable them exchange ideas, knowledge, experience and learning about day-to-day O.R. in practice. Such a community will be an asset to its members, to help them individually to become more effective, and also to the profession as a whole.
We would like to invite anybody who is interested to:
- become a member of the network, by visiting our website at https://www.euro-online.org/websites/or-in-practice
- join the LinkedIn group: EURO Work Group on Practice of Operations Research
- hold the date! for our first workshop, 15-16 February in Paris-Saclay, with keynote speaker Laurent Perron from Google. A notice is attached https://www.euro-online.org/websites/or-in-practice/wp-content/uploads/sites/8/2017/10/workgroupmeeting.png and more detailed timetable will follow, but we would love to see as many people as possible come for what promises to be a friendly and stimulating experience amongst like-minded professionals from many working backgrounds
- and hold the date again! for the 'Making an Impact' stream at EURO2018 in Valencia. Any colleagues who would like to get involved in running a practical workshop, or helping organise the collection of activities, that will be valuable to practitioners outside academia as well as within, is invited to get in touch. https://www.euro-online.org/websites/or-in-practice/wp-content/uploads/sites/8/2017/10/EURO-flyer.png
We are particularly keen to reach O.R. people working in industry, government, or consultancies. Many such people will not be members of your society, but they will be alumni, or customers, or collaborators of your members; so we ask everybody who receives this email to share the information and invitations widely.
Many thanks for your support,
Ruth Kaufman OBE, FORS, FIMA
President, The OR Society
