ORSNZ members have been invited to attend APORS 2022 in Cebu, Philippines. In particular the president of the Operations Research Society of the Philippines (ORSP) hopes that we might provide the following:
At least 1 paper contribution from New Zealand;
1 paper for the APORS Youth Forum, this paper will be in the 2022 APORS Conference in Cebu, Manila;
1 optional paper for the special track on public health emergencies – this is a special track in collaboration with World Health Organization (WHO)’s GOARN department. WHO agreed to provide special prizes for the PHE papers.
Please let me know if you’d like any more information at president AT orsnz.org.nz.
APORS is launching a Special Interest Group (SIG) for Public Health Emergencies with a webinar on May 17.
Please see more information from APORS as follows.
“After many months of discussion with GOARN South East Asia RO, I am pleased to invite you to a webinar on May 17 on OR for Public Health Emergencies.
During this webinar, we also intend to formally launch the APORS Special Interest Group.
A partnership with GOARN will benefit APORS since this will open up a lot of opportunities for OR researchers in the region who want to focus on this topic. Finally, this also builds on the foundation set by the Winter School on ORPHES kindly organized by our EURO friends (Roberto, Stefan and Honora).”
