The EURO-k Conferences are broadly oriented and have recently attracted more than 2,000 participants. They are intended to be forums for communication and cooperation among European operational researchers. They are also intended to be international meetings of operational researchers who are active in the various areas of OR and to serve the free exchange of ideas and results.
National OR societies which are full members of EURO are regularly invited to submit proposals to host future EURO-k Conferences. Bids for hosting a EURO-k Conference in a specific year should be presented for acceptance to EURO Council at least 3.5 years before the date of the meeting (for details please check the guidelines section). As part of the selection process, EURO attempts to balance the location of successive conferences in terms of geography (so that no specific part of Europe is ignored) and between large and small societies.
In making decisions, EURO also takes notice of other major international meetings having to some extent the same purpose as the EURO-k Conferences. More specifically, no EURO-k Conference is held in a year of an IFORS triennial conference.
EURO-k Conferences can be organized in cooperation with other associations such as INFORMS. In each such case, a special agreement between EURO and the guest association must be prepared.
