CSIR International Convention Centre

The 47th Annual Conference of the Operations Research Society of South Africa (ORSSA) will take place at the CSIR International Convention Centre, in Pretoria - Gauteng, South Africa, from 16 - 19 September, 2018.

An optional tutorial on customer churn probability and customer clustering models will be held on Sunday afternoon 16 September, followed by a welcome reception that same evening. The main conference will start Monday morning 17 September and will close at lunchtime on Wednesday, 19 September. We are very excited to also include a poster session at this year's conference.

Participation over the full spectrum of Op­erations Research is encouraged, including presentations and posters of a more fundamental nature, application of Operations Research techniques in business and industry, topical issues in Operations Research, and the philosophy, teaching and marketing of Operations Research.

Prof. Liezl van Dyk, newly appointed Executive Dean: Faculty of Engineering at North West University, and Charles Malack Oloo, President of AFROS (African Federation of Operations Research Societies), are the keynote speakers at this year's conference. They are both exceptional OR practitioners and we look forward to their keynote addresses.

Delegates are responsible for their own travel and accom­modation arrangements. The local organising committee has arranged competitive rates for conference delegates at City Lodge Hotel Lynnwood (located 2.3 km from the CSIR ICC) and Casa Toscana Lodge (located 1.1 km from the CSIR ICC).
