Overview

The 89th MORS Symposium will be held from 21-24 in June 2021 at Marine Corps University, Quantico, VA. The focus for this Symposium will be, "Analytics to Enhance Decision Making." The MORS Symposium is the signature event attended annually by over 1,000 Operation Research Professionals. 

89th Contingency In-person/Virtual Information

The planning for the 89th MORS Symposium is moving forward for an in-person event to be hosted by Marine Corps University, Quantico, VA.  The health and safety of our community is foremost in our decision process as follows:

  1. MORS leadership will decide no later than 1 March 2021 regarding the viability of a full in-person 89th
  2. If a full in-person Symposium is not viable the 89th will be moved to a virtual platform for Distribution A presentation.
  3. Virtual or limited in person options for classified presentations may be available.
  4. If the Symposium is held virtually the fees will be reduced by 25%.

Registration will open 10 November. No fees will be collected until the in-person or virtual decision is made.  At that time those registered will be invoiced for the appropriate amount.
