51st Annual ORSSA Conference 


A national conference is organised by the Society at different venues annually, usually during the month of September, to serve as a forum for communication about OR. An international expert or a prominent local operations researcher is usually invited as the keynote speaker. This is the premier annual meeting of the Society, and apart from a rich and varied programme of presentations by both practitioners and academics, the conference usually also boasts a very enjoyable social component.


The 51st Annual Conference of the Operations Research Society of South Africa (ORSSA) will be hosted by the Department of Statistical Sciences at the University of Cape Town (UCT), South Africa. The Conference is will be an in-person event subject to national COVID-19 regulations. The preliminary date is the week of 11 to 14 September, 2022. 

An optional tutorial will be held on Sunday afternoon 11 September 2022, followed by a welcome reception that same evening. The main conference will start Monday morning, 12 September 2022 and will close at lunchtime on Wednesday, 14 September 2022.

The theme of this year's conference will be announced soon, and will provide delegates the opportunity to engage with academic presentations by experienced academics and industry leaders.
