The group holds meetings every 1.5 years organised by one of its members.
Anyone interested in presenting their work, participating in the discussions, or simply learning and/or consulting about subjects related with locational analysis may join the group and its meetings; their participation will be greatly appreciated. Either theoretical contributions (concepts, methods, etc.), applied research, and the presentation of software, are welcome. Communications, discussions or surveys on new applications, open problems, connections between the field of location theory and related areas are of interest.
EWGLA meetings have always been an enjoyable and very friendly come together of a relatively small but cosy, enthusiastic and energetic group, stimulated by their common centre of interest. Refereed proceedings of each meeting are usually published, and provided free of charge to the participants.
