ORP3 - Operation Research Peripatetic Postgraduate Programme, A EURO Conference for young OR researchers, Linz, Austria, July, 16-20, 2012.
ORP3 is the EURO peripatetic conference, each edition of which is hosted by a European university. It is organised (bi-)annually and is devoted to the Operational Research field in its broadest sense. Previous conferences have been held in Paris (2001), Lambrecht (2003), Valencia (2005), Guimarães (2007), Cadiz(2011).
ORP3 aims at being a forum promoting scientific and social exchanges between the members of the future generation of Operations Research in academic research.
The conference is open to the whole scope of Operations Research, but the following topics are mostly welcome:
- Integer Programming and Combinatorial Optimization
- Discrete Optimization: graphs & networks
- Supply Chain Management
- Cutting and Packing
- Machine and Project Scheduling
- Production Planning and Lotsizing
- Transportation and Logistics
- Stochastic Optimization
- Multiobjective Optimization
- Location Analysis
The conference is composed only of plenary sessions and each participant will act as the chair and discussant of another session. In addition, the Scientific Program includes five keynote tutorials dedicated to specific issues whose speakers are internationally renowned experts:
Gilbert Laporte, CIRRELT, Montréal:
Scheduling issues in vehicle routing
Richard F. Hartl, University of Vienna:
Paolo Toth, Professor in Operations Research - University of Bologna:
Models and Algorithms forPassenger Railway Optimization Problems
Walter J. Gutjahr, University of Vienna:
