With the theme Raising the Bar for Public Service Through OR, the conference seeks to bring together OR researchers, academicians and practitioners, whose collective work has sustained continuing OR contribution to decision-making.
The 2018 National Conference aims to provide a forum where:
• Practitioners will share their experiences on the problems, methodologies and outcomes of applying OR to solve real-world problems in the Philippines;
• Decision-makers will share new applications of OR in non-traditional areas;
• Researchers will present their findings dealing with the theoretical, computational, and application aspects of OR;
• OR workers will discuss pertinent academic-, theoretical- and application- oriented issues;
• Decision-makers could gain insights from experiences of others who have benefited from the use of OR in the public and private sectors; and
• Everyone will be given the opportunity to exchange ideas on how Analytics can help deal with issues that will contribute to Philippine economic growth.
