    Further information: .




    Researchers, academics, practitioners, and students interested in any branch of Operational Research, mathematical modelling or economic analysis are invited to submit abstracts or organize sessions.


    Invited and contributed papers will be organized in parallel sessions. Sessions will be a part of Streams, and streams are grouped into different Areas. The list of Areas can be found at, where also access is provided to the list of streams.


    Abstract submission system  


    Abstracts: max. 1500 characters; submission deadline: February 8, 2019.


    Special Sessions on Governance Analytics and Renewable Energy will propose a new role for the conference, in the design of operationally feasible solutions for major projects, in this case to capture wind energy (mainly from the Atlantic) and heat energy (mainly from the south of Europe) and grid it across Europe. One of these exciting sessions will be a Forum.
