The contributions have spread several papers, which have been published in well-known journals as well as in the proceedings, and some international joint research projects have had their roots in the contacts started at these OR Workshops

This edition is dedicated to foster the applications of models and methods of optimization, statistical, probability, numerical analysis and algorithms for modeling systems where randomness, imprecision or changes in systems conditions which cause uncertainty : structuring methodology, stochastic models, randomized algorithms, fuzzy models, soft computing approaches,

The meeting is planned to be attended by a group of specialists from all around the world as well as by Cuban students and professionals for exchanging on around theoretical results, application and teaching experiences in the field.

IWOR is going to take place at Colegio San Geronimo, located in Habana Vieja, Old Havana. Colegio San Geronimo is a faculty of Universidad de La Habana and it has a special status as post graduate center for training on restoration of architecture and archeology. The Historiador de la Ciudad is its dean. The colegio is located at the original site of Universidad de La Habana. The opening is planned to take place at its Aula Magna, which is a reconstruction of the original 1728`s one. A modern building, with a heliport, was constructed in the place in the fifties. It was the economical government nucleon of what was planned to be Havana`s Wall Street. Now the modern building has been transformed to settle with the original construction.

Old Havana homes several museums and cultural institutions, such as Museo de Bellas Artes and Gtan Teatro de La Habana. It is already a traditional that some sessions be developed in one of the closest Casas Museo, bringing the opportunity of admiring how culture, education and science come together in the colonial environment present in this part of the city, an UNESCO`s Cultural Patrimony of Human kind.
