Abstract

The 48th Annual Conference of the Operations Research Society of South Africa (ORSSA) will take place at the The Vineyard Hotel, in Cape Town, South Africa, from 8 - 11 September, 2019. The Conference is a celebration of the Society-s 50th anniversary. An optional tutorial will be held on Sunday afternoon 8 September, followed by a welcome reception that same evening. The main conference will start Monday morning 9 September and will close at lunchtime on Wednesday, 11 September. We are again 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. Professor M Grazia Speranza, the President of IFORS (International Federation of Operational Research Societies), and Professor Gerhard Geldenhuys, founding member of ORSSA, 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 The Vineyard Hotel.
