The 80th MORS Symposium, 11-14 June 2012 at the US Air Force Academy 

Over 1,000 of your military, government, industry and academic OR peers gathered at the 80th MORS Symposium to share best practices, take advantage of a full slate of learning opportunities and enjoy a bit of well-deserved peer-to-peer networking in a supportive environment.
 
Attendees participated in
over 600 presentations in 34 important Working Groups, Focus Sessions, Special Sessions, Posters, Demonstrations, Tutorials and a Short Course for CEU credit. During the Plenary, this year’s winners of prestigious MORS Awards and Prizes were honored. Following the plenary address by General William L. Shelton, Commander, Air Force Space Command, participants were treated to a spectacular aerial display by the Academy’s Wings of Blue parachute team. Symposium attendees also had the opportunity to dine at the U.S. Olympic Training Center where they were treated to a gymnastics demonstration and a Wounded Warrior basketball game. Also, 59 runners participated in the Annual MORS 5K run at over 6,000 feet above sea level. Click here for the results and congrats to all.

The abstract submission deadline for the 80th MORS Symposium has passed.

Thought-leaders in operations research are known not just for the quality of their output, but for their ability to harness intellectual capital and move big problems towards big solutions. Presenting at a MORS gathering not only ensures that your professional peers are exposed to thinking that can support their efforts, it allows for invaluable real-time, in-person interactions that further your work and theirs. 

When you present at the MORS Symposium, the value of your work multiplies and you’re recognized by your colleagues for your important contributions to the profession and to national security. Work shared accelerates progress, reduces redundancy and enhances results.


Download the Announcement and Call for Presentations (ACP)  and learn about the Symposium's Working Group Structure and the many opportunities to share your work  and expertise.
