About MORS
The MORS mission is to enhance the quality of analysis to address real world National Security Interests through the advancement of the OR Profession.

MORS has a long and distinguished history, dating back over fifty years. The First Military Operations Research Symposium (MORS), sponsored by the Office of Naval Research (ONR) - Pasadena, was held at Corona Naval Ordnance Lab, Corona, California in August of 1957.  By the Eighth MORS Sympoium the event became a nationally-oriented joint-service meeting.  In April 1966 the Military Operations Research Society was incorporated.

Today MORS services include:
  • The Annual MORS Symposium with 500+ classified and unclassified sessions
  • Year-round Professional Development Communities organized around the 33 Symposium Working Groups, specialized Communities of Practice and geographic Chapters
  • The Annual Education and Professional Development Colloquium for students and young analysts
  • Classified and Unclassified Meetings and Workshops
  • Tutorials and CEU Courses
  • Phalanx the quarterly magazine of National Security Analysis
  • The MOR Journal a refereed journal
  • Catalog of original books, texts, reports and republished historical manuals

MORS is proud of its heritage as it closely reflects the heritage of Operations Research in the United States. MORS recognizes those individuals who have made long-lasting and significant contributions to the Society as Fellows of the Society. They are some of the great minds in military and national security OR work.

MORS is led by an elected 28 member Board of Directors and supported by a professional staff.  MORS holds a DoD contract with funding from the Navy, Army, Air Force, Marine Corps and the Office of the Secretary of the Defense.
