Cooperation with Other Bodies
As one of the regional groupings of IFORS,
EURO actively participates in the activities of IFORS.
Since 1987, EURO appoints a "EURO Vice-President of IFORS"
for a three-year period. This position was successively held by Jean-Pierre Brans (1989-1991), Jacob
Krarup (1992-1994, Rainer Burkard (1995-1997), Dominique de Werra (1998-2000),
Yannis Siskos (2001-2003), Philippe Vincke (2004-2006). The EURO Vice-President of IFORS reports each year to the EURO Council.
(Associacion Latino-Ibero-Americana de Investigacion Operativa)
is one of the four regional groupings of IFORS.
Once every three years, ALIO and EURO organize a joint
workshop which aims to bring
together researchers from Latin America and Europe and to
stimulate joint activities and discussions
about methods and applications in the field of combinatorial
optimization. Researchers from other countries are obviously
welcome too. Previous ALIO-EURO workshops on Applied
Combinatorial Optimization were held in:
