Beta Symposium: 11 April 2019


In the alternating year of the GP-OML bi-annual Netherlands Conference on OML, Beta organizes a Beta Symposium specifically aimed at the Beta community. Beta offers an interesting program for both members and PhD students of Beta by providing a platform for Beta PhD students to present their research to the rest of the Beta community and by allowing time to start an in-depth discussion by Beta members and PhD students afterwards.

On Thursday, April 11, 2019, fourteen Beta PhD students, invited by the Beta Board and representing all Beta partners, will present their research in two parallel sessions to the Beta community. The program is complemented by two plenary talks and the announcement of the Beta PhD Award to the PhD who defended the best Beta PhD thesis in the field of Operations Management during the calendar years 2017 and 2018. The day is concluded by a joint dinner for the whole Beta community. The event will take place at Kontakt der Kontinenten in Soesterberg.

Registration for the Beta Symposium is possible via the online registration form.
