Founded in 1958, the Canadian Operational Research Society (CORS) is an association of those interested in 

the application of operational research (OR). Its primary goals are the dissemination of information 

about OR and the encouragement of exchanges between OR professionals.

OR is a branch of applied mathematics that uses mathematical modelling, optimization, and other techniques to solve complex real-world problems arising, for example, in transportation planning and telecommunications.

CORS publishes the journal INFOR and holds an annual conference. 

Attention graduating students: Apply for the CORS Diploma / Le Diplôme de la SCRO!
