With the theme Sustaining the Environment through OR, the conference seeks to bring together OR researchers,

– 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 environment issues can be addressed through the use of OR.
