Poznan University of Technology - being one of the leading European centers in decision analysis, optimization, project management, and scheduling - is a perfect place to share cutting edge ideas from the OR/MS community. The main conference venue is the modern university campus at the riverside, located close to the historical center of Poznan (Address: Poznan University of Technology, Lecture and Conference Centre, Piotrowo 2, Poznań). The central plenary lecture will be hosted by Poznan International Fair in the beautiful Earth Hall (Address: Głogowska 10, Poznań).

The Program and Organizing Committees, chaired by Daniele Vigo and Joanna Józefowska, respectively, have prepared a high quality scientific program and an exciting social program. The conference will be attended by almost 2000 researchers, academicians, practitioners, as well as students interested in operational research.

All conference attendees will have an excellent opportunity to explore Poznan. The city offers a wide range of historical and leisure spots to visit, including the renaissance Old Market Square, the enchantingly located Cathedral, former Imperial Castle, Malta lake, and a set of rearranged post-industrial venues. Poznan: Eastern energy – Western style. Come and enjoy!
