The deadline for submitting abstracts for the 14th NATO Operations Research and Analysis Conference has been extended to 15 June 2020. The Conference will be open to representatives from all NATO Nations, NATO Organizations and STO Enhanced Opportunity Partners (Australia, Finland and Sweden).

The 2020 conference theme is “Emerging and Disruptive Technology” (EDT).  Presenters are encouraged to share their EDT-related work, particularly methods for assessing the impact of EDT in military operations, or research related to EDT-enhanced analytical methods. Papers on other subjects describing emerging OR&A techniques as well as analytical case studies and best practices are also welcome.

This year’s event is currently planned to be held 05-07 October 2020 in Riga, Latvia and is open to NATO nations, STO Enhanced Opportunity Partners, and Partnership for Peace nations. However, if a physical meeting is not possible due to COVID19, the conference will convert to a virtual format.  Any updates will be posted to the conference webpage (see link below).

Interested candidates should submit abstracts (250 words or less) for consideration to LTC Pierre Han (pierre.han@act.nato.int) by 15 June 2020.  Additional conference information, updates, and FAQs may be found at the following link: https://bit.ly/2Z34E6o.

The conference is sponsored by HQ Supreme Allied Command Transformation (HQ SACT) and NATO Science and Technology Organization (STO). A PAXsims report on last year’s conference is available here.
