AIMMS has always merged the academic world of operations research with concrete business needs and challenges, thereby empowering business leaders to reap the benefits of OR for their optimization goals. OR is simply at the core of what we do. It is therefore our pleasure to announce that we’ll be participating in this year’s International Conference on Operations Research. The conference will be held in Rotterdam’s Erasmus University this week.

The theme of the conference is the impact of operations research on people, business and society. Keynote speakers at the event will include Steve Shashihara (author of The Optimization Edge) and Alexander Rinnooy Kan. In addition, there will be 12 semi-plenary speakers and 18 streams delving into different OR areas. An exceptionally large delegation of Franz Edelman award winners and finalists will also be present.

Make sure to visit our booth at the conference and tune into our colleague Ovidiu Listes’ presentation at 11:00 am on Thursday to learn more about AIMMS-enabled advanced optimization models. You’re also welcome to download the OR 2013 app (sponsored by AIMMS and ORTEC) to find more information about the speakers and locate interesting events. The app is free and available for both iOS and Android devices.

Hope to see you there!
