Date: November 27, 2015
Venue: Eastwood Richmonde Hotel, Eastwood, Quezon City


With the theme Analytics: Fueling the Engines of Growth, the conference seeks to bring together OR researchers, academicians and practitioners, whose collective work has sustained continuing OR contribution to decision-making.

The 2015 National Conference aims to provide a forum where:

Researchers will present their findings dealing with the theoretical, computational, and application aspects of OR;
Practitioners will share their experiences on the problems, methodologies and outcomes of applying OR to solve real-world problems in the Philippines;
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 OR can help deal with issues that continue to emerge in the Philippine economic and political landscape.
