Military Applications Society


The Military Applications Society (MAS) is a technical society within the Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORMS). MAS welcomes members from around the globe who share a common interest in its goals.

The goals of MAS are to:

  • advance research in global defense-related topics, including military operations, governmental operations and security, and nation support;
  • foster high standards in the practice of military operations research;
  • promote the global exchange of information and ideas amongst developers and users of military operations research tools and techniques; and,
  • help develop students and practitioners of military operations research to be capable of addressing the complex challenges of the 21st century.

MAS does this through a program of meetings, awards, publications and other activities independently and in concert with sister societies such as the Military Operations Research Society (MORS).
