The 2nd Call for papers for KOI 2016 (16th International Conference on Operational Research) conference is announced. KOI conference is the major event organized by the Croatian Operational Research Society since 1992. This year we expect five top experts to be keynote speakers, such as Jakob Krarup, Andrew Barron, Francisco Martínez Álvarez, Marko Bohanec, and Tibor Illes. Eight different sections will be organized including the special section dedicated to Interior-Point methods. Also, a round table on OR in Education will be organized in conjunction with the conference.
We invite all researchers in the area of OR and related areas (applied mathematics, statistics, econometrics, information systems, machine learning etc.) to join us at this warm-atmosphere conference in Osijek, Croatia! Important dates can be found here.
Greys Sošić, professor at University of Southern California, Marshall School of Business, Los Angeles, SAD and the head of the doctoral program “Information and Operations Management” is staying in Croatia in November 2015, giving lectures and promoting their doctoral program scholarships among our students.
Organized by the Ingineering section of Croatian Mathematical Society she gave a lecture at Faculty of Science, University of Zagreb on November 24, 2015 at 6.15 p.m. (lecture room 004), while the next day, on November 25 she will give a lecture at Department of Mathematics, University of Osijek (organized by Mathematical Colloquium) at 5 p.m (lecture room 36). See the abstract of the lecture in pdf.
Croatian Operational Research Society announces an
INTERNAL CALL FOR SUPPORT FOR YOUNG RESEARCHERS by which it will support one of its young members to attend one of the EURO programs for young researchers: EURO PhD School, NATCOR program, or ELAVIO school that will be held in 2016. For additional information, see the HDOI Call for Support for EURO programs (pdf). We invite all our interested members to apply to email@example.com. All candidates should also send the application to the specific EURO program they apply for.
The deadline is 30.11.2016.
A day before the conference, the EURO Council Meeting was held, at which the national representatives discussed past and future EURO activities. Around 2200 participants presented their papers or posters at the conference. Publisher such as Elsevier, Springer had their booths with the samples of journals and books. Also, the meeting with EURO research group „OR/MS in Education“ was led by Ana Paula Teixeira from Portugal. HDOI agreed to participate this survey, and that the results of this survey will be presented at KOI 2016 conference. Nine Croatian researchers HDOI participated the EURO 2015 conference, five of them were HDOI members. Our members Tunjo Perić, Goran Lešaja and Tihomir Hunjak were chairs of sections, while Marijana Zekić-Sušac participated as an author and as an offical representative of HDOI at EURO Council Meeting.
