PhD students from all European Universities studying Operational
Research, Management
Science or a related field are kindly invited to submit an abstract

conference. As some presenters may still be on an early stage of in
their careers, the work
presented does not need to be fully developed or thoroughly explored

of SCOR 2014 is to provide a friendly environment for the next
generation of Operational
Researchers to receive constructive feedback on their work and to meet
people with similar
interests. The scope of the conference includes, but is not limited to:

*Big Data & Analytics * Data Mining * Energy * Forecasting * Graphs /
Networks * Healthcare *
*Heuristics * Inventory * Mathematical Programming * Multicriteria
Decision Analysis *

Chain Management *
*Simulation / System Dynamics * Transport /Logistics*

The conference takes place just after the NATCOR course, which will
also be held in Nottingham.

A notification of acceptance will be sent shortly after this deadline.
In order to encourage a wide
range of students to attend, an affordable conference fee will cover
accommodation, a full social
program and full catering provided.

******************Deadline for PAPERS submission: Friday 11th April

Presenters are also invited to submit a paper (no more than 10 pages)
on their work to be
published electronically as part of the SCOR 2014 proceedings. This
will be available in the
Dagstuhl OpenAccess Series in Informatics (OASIcs). Paper submissions
will undergo a selection
process based on refereeing by the Committee. This gives doctoral
candidates a chance to
experience the peer-review process and to enhance their technical
writing skills. Although it
is not mandatory, it is again, highly recommended. To get an idea on
the paper standards
please visit the SCOR2012 proceedings.

See you in Nottingham!!!
