Abstract

Founded in 1958 and incorporated on 25 February 1964, the Canadian Operational Research Society (CORS) takes a leadership role in the advancement of both the theory and practice of operational research (OR) in Canada, and it represents the Canadian OR community in the International Federation of Operational Research Societies (IFORS). We meet our objectives with our publications, Web site (www.cors.ca), and annual conference and by supporting a diverse array of local section activities. The society is bilingual and is also known as the Société canadienne de recherche opérationelle (SCRO).
