About IORS2012

Fifth International conference of Iranian Operations Research Society (IORS2012)  will be held on 16- 17 May 2012 in Tabriz by the hospitality of the Azarbaijan University of Tarbiat Moallem in  Tabriz.  It   aims to bring together the  people from  academics in all aspects of optimization, working on both theoretical and applied areas. There will be also small some plenary talks by some distinguished scientists  and contributed talks, spread over two days.

We are targeting to present a diverse set of developments from different optimization areas while an atmosphere facilitating the interaction among the participants. We aim to bring together researchers from both the theoretical and applied communities who do not usually have the chance to interact in the framework of interdisciplinarity.
