OR Society Criminal Justice Special Interest Group meeting – 21st November 2018

Our next meeting will be on Wednesday November 21st in central London and I’m delighted to tell you that we have three most interesting speakers for you – please see the notice below. We are most grateful to them all for agreeing to come along and present to us – hope to see you there!

Do let Sue Merchant know if you would like to come and present to the group sometime – we like case studies, new techniques, academics wanting input on their research, the range is very wide. The SIG is very friendly and not too large if you have young members of staff who would like to practice their presentation skills! Also, if you have any topics you would particularly like to hear about just let use know and we’ll do my best to hunt speakers down.
