Annual Meetings

The VVSOR organizes a yearly meeting with as a goal to bring together statistics and OR enthusiasts from the Netherlands and beyond.

The Annual Meeting usually takes place in the Spring. Contemporary and sometimes controversial talks are brought to our members and other attendants covering topics in the field of (applied) statistics, OR and data science.
