The IFORS 2020 conference will highlight global developments in operations research and show how the tools of operations research are expanding their impact on society, health, science and industry. IFORS conferences, held only once every three years, provide a platform for experts from around the world to showcase the diverse potential of state-of-the-art operations research techniques and technologies. IFORS 2020 offers a unique opportunity to network with operations research analysts, industrial users of operations research, and academic and industry experts from all parts of the globe.
This is the first IFORS conference to be held in Asia since the 15th conference in China 20 years ago. It is thus an exciting opportunity to bring together operations researchers from the field in Asia, where it has experienced vigorous and rapid growth, with colleagues from all regions of the world.
The conference includes a Wednesday-afternoon social event where you can choose among a variety of tours, such as the Demilitarized Zone tour, where you can witness the history of Korea's division, the Industrial Tour to Korea's leading ICT companies, as well as other programs that will explore K-POP and Hallyu, K-Beauty and K-Culture, and show you the most historic buildings and markets in the city.
The timing of the meeting in late June assures that it will be warm and sunny.
Four plenary speakers headline the scientific program:
Highlighting the achievement of Korean industry, there will be the chance to hear from the executive level of leading Korean companies, including from Dr. WP Hong, who is currently President and CEO of Samsung SDS, the largest IT solutions and services provider in South Korea.
There will also be a stimulating line-up of Keynote Speakers: experts giving an extended exposition of an evolving technical field or emerging domain. These include the following, with more Keynote Speakers to be announced in the coming weeks:
Several special issues of journals will be associated with the meeting. So far, special issues

IFORS, and the IFORS Conference Organizing Committee and Program Committee are looking forward to greeting you in Seoul in 2020!
