ORbit is the bi-annual magazine of the Danish and Swedish OR societies, which features both theoretical and practical articles about the application of operations research and analytics. ORbit is always looking for contributors; we are especially interested in case-study in operations research, book reviews, and descriptions of new developments. The deadlines for submission are the 15th of March and the 15th of October. 


The latest magazine is sent in electronic and paper version to all our members (it is possible to opt out of the paper version), while earlier issues can be found in this page.
