Description

The event promises to be both exciting and informative with Ruth Kaufman, President of The OR Society outlining some exciting plans with members through a Q&A on future directions. Your chance to meet Board members as well as Gavin Blackett, Secretary and General Manager, and other OR Society members. There will be some time for networking with refreshments and nibbles.

It is a pleasure to welcome Professor Keith Still our invited speaker who is an expert on ‘Crowd Science’. His research is focused on crowd safety. His tools (Legion, Paramics UAF, Myriad, Dwell Analysis, Progressive Crowd Collapse and Tawaf models) have been used for the analysis of crowds in complex and built spaces for over two decades. Professor Still has authored a book on this topic published by CRC Press.Prof. Still has lectured at the UK Cabinet Office Emergency Planning College (EPC) from 1999 - 2013 contributing to a wide range of crowd safety related courses and continues to teach short courses around the world.

We will also have a short presentation by three undergraduate placement students from HMRC who recently won the first ever INFORMS O.R. and Analytics Competition against stiff competition from student teams from around the world. They will tell us about their experience, from the original entry to participating in the final in Las Vegas.

You will be able to book here. Look forward to seeing you there.
