The Headquarters Supreme Allied Commander Transformation and the Science and Technology Organization will join in organising the 13th NATO Operations Research and Analysis (OR&A) Conference to be held in Ottawa, Canada, on 7-9 October 2019. The Conference is open to all NATO nations, Science and Technology Organization Enhanced Opportunity Partners (Australia, Finland and Sweden) and Partnership for Peace nations.
The 2019 theme is "Challenges for NATO OR&A in a Changing Global Security Environment". The conference will kick off with a number of keynote addresses and proceed through various streams. The Programme Committee welcomes papers that address the conference theme from different perspectives. Papers describing emerging techniques and approaches as well as case studies of analysis undertaken are equally welcome. Based on the submission of abstracts, the Programme Committee will group papers for the conduct of running parallel sessions.
As part of the continuous development of the NATO OR&A Community of Interest, the event builds on previous conferences and workshops, bringing together the analysis community from NATO commands and agencies, national defence analysis and research organisations, centres of excellence, academia, and industry. It is our goal to provide an exciting program with plenty of opportunities for discussion and debate as well as valuable training opportunities for young analysts and military.
