The first Research Day of the Centre for Operational Research and Logistics (CORL) will be held at the University of Portsmouth.
The day seeks to bring together experienced and early career researchers working in one of the four main CORL research themes, namely Multi Criteria Decision Analysis (MCDA), Soft OR, Optimisation Modelling and Exact Methods, Heuristics & Metaheuristics. The event will kick-off with a welcome session, followed by keynote sessions and parallel streams to present current research in key areas of Operational Research.
Attendance is free. Coffee breaks and lunch will be provided.
