Stream: Computational and Modeling Tools for Decision-Making under Uncertainty and for Combinatorial Optimization

The stream is looking for abstracts presenting advances in computational and modeling tools for complex optimization applications. Of particular interest are contributions in constraint programming, hybrid optimization, optimization under uncertainty, modeling languages and optimization systems, the integration of optimization and simulation, as well as innovative applications of such techniques.

Stream: Cutting and Packing

Contributions dealing with any aspect of the Cutting and Packing problems formulation, resolution or application are welcomed. This includes theoretical achievements, algorithms development and real-world implementations. Different problems, related with Cutting and Packing, are also welcomed.

Typical, but not exclusive, topics of interest are:

  • One-Dimensional Problems
  • Two-Dimensional Rectangular Problems
  • Nesting and Irregular Shapes Packing
  • Three-Dimensional Packing
  • Bin-Packing
  • Container Loading
  • Problem Generators and Benchmarks
  • Additional Objectives and Constraints in C&P
  • Typologies
  • Industrial applications

Stream: Data Mining in Early Warning Systems

We would like to invite all researchers, academicians, practitioners, as well as students interested in data mining (DM) and its applications in the development of early warning systems (EWSs) to participate in the conference and to present their papers in the sessions dedicated to these topics.

About DM in EWSs: Development of more effective EWSs for various applications have been possible during the past decade due to advancements in information, detection, data mining (DM) and surveillance technologies. These application areas include economy, banking, finance, health care, bioinformatics, production and service delivery, quality management, hazard and crime prevention and minimization of other social risks involving the environment, administrations, politics and human rights.

Typical applications of DM are observed in management of risks in economy, banking and financial operations, such as economic crisis prediction and fraud detection based on historical data about the economy or banking/financial operations and customers.

Environmental, public health and disaster monitoring systems use surveillance technologies such as remote sensing (satellite imaging) and the data collected are analyzed by DM approaches for early warnings. Several EWSs for health and infectious disease control exist that make more and more use of DM methods. Similarly, EWS applications and attempts are observed in the literature and in practice for network security, intelligence, protection against natural or man-made hazards, risks from poor product quality or competitors threats, and so on.

There is a need to develop many others and improve the existing ones for detecting important economic and social risks including hungers, epidemics, crimes, child abuses, unemployment, ethnic conflicts and environmental disasters.

Stream: Decision Support Systems

We would like to invite you: researchers, practitioners, as well as students working in the areas of decision making, analysis and decision support to participate at this Conference and to submit your work to this stream. Topics concerning the areas listed below are of particular interest in this stream:

  • Models for Decision Making & Decision Analysis;
  • Network-based Collaboration Decision Systems;
  • New Methodologies and Technology in Group Decision Making;
  • Knowledge Management as a Collaboration Model;
  • Applications in Decision Making & Decision Analysis.

Stream: Facilitated Modelling in OR

The stream welcomes contributions from researchers and practitioners engaged in the development and/or use of facilitated modelling approaches to organisational intervention.

We define Facilitated Modelling as an approach to modelling where the operational researcher works both as an analyst and as a facilitator throughout the intervention, from helping the client to structure and define the nature of the problem situation of interest, to supporting the evaluation of priorities and development of plans for subsequent implementation.

Presentations of particular interest may include, but are not limited to:

  • The process of facilitated modelling,
  • Facilitation skills for problem structuring, decision analysis, and systems interventions,
  • Computer support technology for facilitated modelling workshops,
  • Novel applications of facilitated modelling,
  • Evaluation of facilitated modelling interventions,
  • Inter-disciplinary research into facilitated modelling
  • Best practice guidelines for undertaking facilitated modelling interventions.

Invited sessions within the stream include:

  • Facilitated Decision Analysis,
  • Researching Facilitated Modelling,
  • Facilitated Simulation.

Stream: Long Term Planning in Energy, Environment and Climate

The aim of the stream will be to present and discuss modeling approaches for various systems (e.g., climate, agriculture, forestry, energy, water) with the emphasis on their mathematical structures or on some specific results.

We would be glad to invite you to apply for the following invited sessions:

  • Mathematical models for energy and environment;
  • Energy and technological system issues;
  • Meeting the targets: policy and measures.

Stream: Methodology of Societal Complexity

Methodology of Societal Complexity focuses on methods and tools for handling complex societal problems. Handling means analyzing, structuring, guiding and evaluating complex societal problems. Complex societal problems are often policy problems that can occur in many fields, like in the agro-industry (mad-cow disease, BSE; foot- and mouth disease; fowl plague, birds flu, Q-fever), in the transportation sector, in healthcare (malaria, HIV/Aids, Sars, flu), in Water affairs, economy (credit crisis) and global safety. It focuses also on handling local safety problems like large city issues and natural disasters as flood and hurricanes as well as global safety problems like war, terrorism. Although many of these issues have a different cause, they have so much in comment that they can be approached in the same way.

Complex societal problems as such, are unstructured, dynamical and constantly changing and have a large impact on society on macro, meso and on micro level.

Handling complex societal problems needs a special multi-disciplinary approach. The content knowledge comes from content experts. The process knowledge comes from facilitators. The attention of the research group is on the methods and tools facilitators need for supporting these kinds of problems. The facilitators use methods specially created for the field of societal problems combined with methods and insights derived from their original field like medicine, law, economics, societal sciences, methodology, mathematics, computer sciences, technology, engineering sciences, chaos theory and operational research. Often a combination of methods is needed. In this way the field uses all kind of methods from social sciences and operational research. An often-used approach is simulation.

Stream: OR in Fisheries, Maritime Sciences and Related Aspects

We would like to invite all researchers, academicians, practitioners, as well as students interested in fisheries and related aspects from food engineering, logistics, decision making, ecology, and politics, etc., to participate in the conference and to present their papers in the sessions dedicated to these topics.

Stream: OR for Development and Developing Countries

The stream welcomes contributions from researchers and practitioners that address all aspects of OR in the context of a developing country.

Stream: Demand, Pricing, and Revenue Management

The intention of the stream is not only to address classical topics in Revenue Management such as capacity control, but to examine the field from a broader perspective including, e.g., product line selection & pricing, dynamic pricing, or customer relationship management.

Stream: System Dynamics Modeling

The general purpose of this stream is to bring together contributions about the modelling of complex systems, based on the System Dynamics methodology.

Contributions from the fields of organization and management, engineering, economics, sociology, and ecology are particularly welcome.
