The Headquarters Supreme Allied Commander Transformation and the Science and Technology Organization will join in organising the 12th NATO Operations Research and Analysis (OR&A) Conference on the 15th-16th of October 2018 in Zagreb, Croatia.
As part of the continuous development of a 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.
The 2018 theme is “Tackling Complexity in NATO Operations in Contested and Degraded Environments”. The conference will kick off with a number of keynote addresses and continue in three streams which are:
- Understanding and Operating in the Cyber Domain;
- Challenges and Opportunities of Rapid Reinforcement & Force Mobility and its Logistics Aspects;
- Sense Making Through Analytics.
The conference will also include hands-on training workshops on SIMUL8 software and Alternative Analysis methods, where participants will get acquainted with new methods and learn how to apply them to example problems.
