In 2023, we signed an agreement with colleagues from Hungary with the aim of promoting and developing operational research as a scientific and professional field. The aforementioned goal is planned to be achieved through cooperation in the organization of conferences, seminars, workshops and other activities related to the exchange of research results and education in the field of operational research.

The Hungarian Operations Research Society (HORS) is society for the scientific field of Operations Research in Hungary established in Hungary in 1991. The main aims of the society are to provide information relevant to the scientific public life in operations research (OR),  spread the OR culture, to build and maintain ties with similar scientific societies at domestic (Bolyai János Mathematical Society, John von Neumann Computer Society) as well as at international (EURO, IFORS) level and to organize domestic as well as international conferences, workshops. HORS organizes/co-organizes two series of conferences: since 2004 every other year VOCAL (Veszprém Optimization Conference: Advanced Algorithms) an international conference co-organized with University of Pannónia (Veszprém, HU) and in the gap years Hungarian Conference on Operations Research.

VOCAL 2024 Conference: June 5-7, 2024. the 10th VOCAL Optimization Conference: Advanced Algorithms will be held at Corvinus University in Budapest. Click here for more details.
