Scientific Program

The scientific program of the conference is organized in streams. It covers a wide spectrum of topics in Operations Research, both theoretically and practically. The 2015 conference theme is BIG DATA & OPTIMAL DECISIONS.

Each stream consists of sessions.There are sessions for 90 minutes and sessions for 120 minutes. Typically, a talk is 25 minutes plus 5 minutes discussion. On Wednesday, the last session (WE) may be extended to 19:00 if 4 speakers are scheduled. In case there are 4 talks scheduled for a 90 min-slot the presentation is divided into equal parts (20 min + 2,5 min for discussion).

Sessions are moderated by sessions chairs. Chairs open and close the session, take care that all speakers abide to the allotted time frame and moderate the discussion. In case of no shows or last minute cancelations, the time slot is left empty, so that all presentations start as indicated in the program.

Lecture rooms are equipped with a computer (please check back with us for special hard- and/or software), beamer and microphone (if necessary, usually due to room size). All you need to bring is your presentation on USB stick (any additional material is up to you).

We are pleased to anounce this year's distinguished plenary and semiplenary speakers.
