Aim of the Conference

The scope of the conference is intentionally broad. It is devoted to aspects of modeling, computational handling, and applications of the listed topics. Original contributions and interesting applications are welcome. We foster papers that provide cross-fertilization between these topics. We invite researchers to organize stream sessions not only dedicated to a certain topic but to different approaches to the same problem as well.


Optimization : Linear, Nonlinear, Discrete, Parametric, Stochastic Optimization.

Probability and Statistics : Biostatistics, Multivariate Analysis, Neural Techniques for Data Mining, Probability and Stochastic Processes, Reliability, Statistical Inference, Sampling.

Differential Equations : Applications to Biology and Medicine, Coalitional Equations, Control and Inverse Problems, Fluid Mechanics and Coastal Dynamics, Homogenization, Mean Field Games.

Mathematical Economics : Financial Modeling, Games Theory, Mathematical Models for Economic Problems, Microeconomic Theory.

Numerical Analysis and Algorithms : Graph Theory, Geometric Computation, Meta-Heuristics, Neural Networks, Numerical Linear Algebra, Numerical Solution of Differential and Differential-Algebraic Equations.

Multicriteria Decision Making : Decision Support Systems Multi-Objective Optimization.

Dynamical Models : Dynamical Systems, Optimal Control, Stability.

Management Sciences : Banking and Financing, Logistics (Routing, Scheduling, Inventory), Marketing.

Operations Research Education : Teaching Effectiveness, TICS, Postgraduate Education on OR.
