ORSNZ has established an awards committee to make recommendations with respect to the award of the HGD prize, that will:
Stand ready to receive, and where necessary solicit, suggestions with respect to suitable recipients.
Maintain an ordered list of potential recipients, considering the alignment between their achievements and the prize criteria, and also the alignment of award timing with career events such as retirement.
Pro-actively request suitably placed individuals to prepare formal nominations for persons on that list, and to provide supporting documentation, with the aim of making one HGD award every 3 years, on average.
Form an ad hoc sub-committee, adding suitably qualified persons if required to avoid conflicts of interest, to make a recommendation with respect to each nomination.
The committee consists of all past HGD awardees who are still active in ORSNZ, and it is envisaged that members will be added as new awards are made, and will retire when they cease ORSNZ activity.
Awards have been well below the target rate in recent years, so further awards may be made within the next 3 years
Sincerely, Prof Vicky Mabin, Prof Andy Philpott and Prof Grant Read (Awards Committee)
We have 29 presentations scheduled, covering a wide range of topics; here are the titles of the sessions:
Network Models & Data Science
Hydrogen Integration into Energy Systems
Production Processes & Environmental Modelling
Modelling & Optimization under Uncertainty
Operations Research Tools & Supply Chain Modelling
The last day to register for the conference, including the dinner at debretts kitchen, is Friday, November 18 (although dinner tickets may sell out sooner). However, there may be a limited number of day registrations available until Thursday, November 24.
The final deadline for abstracts for the upcoming ORSNZ conference is Monday 7 November. We welcome presentations on any aspect of operations research, analytics or management science, especially practical applications.
You can find the details about how to submit, here.
Note that we have prizes for students, including prizes for papers and presentations. You can find the eligibility criteria and submission details, here.
Monday 28 November will have a cluster of healthcare-related talks, including a plenary address by:
Dr. Melanie Reuter Oppermann, Technical University of Darmstadt.
There will also be a panel discussion to conclude the cluster.
The Energy and Natural Resources SIG will host a cluster of presentations on hydrogen and other technologies that will enable increased renewable energy production. This will also have an associated plenary address on hydrogen integration, and close with a panel discussion.
This is a reminder that the ORSNZ conference 2022 is being held at the University of Auckland on the 28th and 29th of November, and the deadline for abstracts (October 24) is fast approaching.
In addition to the standard sessions, the conference will have two clusters of talks run by our interest groups: – OSHA will run a cluster on health modelling. – ENR will run a cluster on the integration of hydrogen into energy systems.
Both of these clusters will have a keynote presentation and panel discussion.
If you wish to present within one of these clusters, indicate this at the end of your abstract submission.
Note the deadline for early-bird registrations is Monday, October 31.
We welcome presentations on any aspect of operations research, analytics, management science or data science, especially practical applications. We are planning to run specific sessions on digital twin systems, energy & emissions policy as well as healthcare modelling.
If you wish to be a session chair and can organise 4 presentations along a common theme, please email [email protected], and we can ensure the presentations are scheduled appropriately.
The 25th International Congress on Modelling and Simulation (MODSIM2023) will be held at the Darwin Convention Centre, Darwin, Northern Territory, from Sunday 9 to Thursday 13 July 2023 with a workshop day on Friday 14 July.
You can already register for the conference here. Details will be provided about submissions or extended abstracts or full papers at a later time.
If you cannot attend the meeting, you can assign a proxy to vote on your behalf using the 2nd page of this form. (So long as the form is emailed to [email protected] by Wednesday morning, that is fine.)
