[DMANET] SCOR 2016 - 1st Announcement and Call for Papers

5th Student Conference on Operational Research
SCOR 2016
April 8-10 2016, University of Nottingham, UK

We are pleased to announce the official launch of the PhD Student
Conference on Operational Research (SCOR 2016), now back for its
fifth instalment. We invite you to join us once again, at the
beautiful University of Nottingham campus the 8-10 April 2016.

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

PhD students from all European Universities studying Operational
Research, Management Science or a related field are kindly invited to
submit an abstract for presentation at the 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 as of yet. The purpose of SCOR 2016 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 and Analytics * Data Envelopment Analysis * Decision Making
under Risk and Uncertainty * Defence and Security * Disaster Management
* Energy and Climate Change * Forecasting * Healthcare * Mathematical
Programming * Metaheuristics * Multiple Criteria Decision Analysis *
Operations Management * Optimisation * Revenue Management * Safety and
Reliability Analysis * Simulation * Stochastic Modelling * Supply Chain
Management * System Dynamics * Transportation and Logistics * Vehicle

**** Deadline for abstracts (250 words) submission: ****
**** Friday 19th February 2016 ****

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.

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 2016
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
