The Operations Research Society, Faculty of Science, University of Peradeniya is organizing "Statistics and Operations Research Day 2016 (SORD’16)” under the theme "Statistics and Operations Research in the Era of Data Science and Analytics". The event will be held on the 24th of September 2016 from 08. 00a.m to 02. 00p.m at the Auditorium, PGIS University of Peradeniya.
The objective of "SORD’16" is to open a common platform for Academic Staff, Graduates and Undergraduates in the fields of Statistics, Operations Research, Computer Science, Engineering and Management Sciences to interact with leading organizations in the fields of Data Analytics and Optimization. We believe that effective interaction between industry and institutes like us provides guidance to students to understand the necessary skills to become employable in their subject competence. In turn it would benefit organizations, since they can meet a pool of talent and also get an insight into the knowledge taught in a university environment which has not yet been explored by the industry.
