    Dear Colleagues, 

    The aim of the IFORS Developing Countries On-Line Resources page is to
    offer the OR worker all publicly-available materials on the topic of OR
    for Development. It also aims to provide a venue for people who are
    working in the area to share their completed or in-process work, learn
    from others, and stimulate comments and discussions on the
    work.Regarding IFORS Developing Countries OR resources website, its
    regular updates - and your possible submission of "free" (not copyright
    protected) material, you might occasionally visit

    "Operational Research" (OR) is the discipline of applying advanced
    analytical methods to help make better decisions. By using techniques
    such as problem structuring methods and mathematical modelling to
    analyze complex situations, Operational Research gives executives the
    power to make more effective decisions and build more productive systems.

    The International Federation of Operational Research Societies (IFORS; is an almost 60-year old organization which is
    currently composed of 51 national societies.Regional Groups of IFORS
    are:ALIO (The Latin American Ibero Association on Operations Research),
    APORS (The Association of Asian-Pacific Operational Research Societies),
    EURO (The Association of European Operational Research Societies), NORAM
    (The Association of North American Operations Research Societies). IFORS
    conferences are taking place every three years; IFORS 2017 has been
    successfully celebrated in Quebec City, Canada.

    Thank you very much for your attention.

    With kind regards,
    best wishes,
    Luciana Buriol, Sue Merchant, Gerhard-Wilhelm Weber
