    Survey on Operations Research and Covid-19 

    As you know, Operations Research (OR) is a valuable tool to solve large-scale complex problems. The current situation of Covid-19 presents several issues related to the health and safety of the population, the management of essential resources and their supply chain, and many other problems with an important impact on society and the economy.

    Many OR researchers have proposed solutions to solve the problems arising from the Covid-19 pandemic, in a direct and indirect way. The present survey has the objective to collect information on the applications of Operations Research to help in the Covid-19 Pandemic.

    I would appreciate if you could answer the present survey, which will take you about 10 minutes.


    By answering this survey, you agree that the information provided can be make public via a presentation or article, of course referencing your authorship.
