ORBEL: Annual meeting

The conference is intended as a meeting place for researchers, users and potential users of operational research, statistics, computer science and related fields. It will provide managers, practitioners and researchers with a unique opportunity to exchange information on quantitative techniques for decision making.

The ORBEL conferences consist in invited lectures delivered by prominent foreign specialists and practitioners on topics of general interest; more specialized contributed papers are presented in parallel sessions by young researchers. More than one hundred researchers participate each year. The winner of the ORBEL award for the best master thesis in operations research is also announced at the conference and invited to present his/her work there.
