June, 2016: Global Security Sciences (GSS) staff joined over 800 other attendees at the 84th Military Operations Research Society (MORS) Symposium, held in at the Marine Corps University in Quantico, Virginia.
More than 500 presentations were offered in over 40 working and composite groups. Global Security Sciences was well represented with six staff attending and presenting* in a number of different groups:
- Infrastructure Analysis
- Infrastructure Analysis, Protection, and Recovery
- Operational Environments
- Operational Energy
- Social Science Methods and Applications
- Unmanned Systems
GSS/Argonne, a founding member of MORS’ Industry and Institutional Partnership Program, also showcased the laboratory’s National Security Portfolio in an exhibit at the Symposium.
The 84th MORS Symposium was the 50th “birthday” of MORS, and to celebrate it, a gala event was held Friday evening at the Museum of the Marine Corps. The event included a large majority of all of the living Fellows of the Society and all of the past MORS Executive officers.
