Welcome to the EURO working group on Practice of OR. Here we present events, news and other information valuable for practitioners of OR as well as academics with an interest in the field.
We have finished our 2nd working group meeting. It was held in Bologna and was a big success with both content and participation where we grew quite a bit from the first working group meeting in Paris.
Here is a booklet that summarizes the meeting of OR meets Machine learning, we might also post some presentations later but for different reasons (a main reason being that companies are not willing to publish all presentations held since it’s more sensitive to put something up online than to share it with peers at the conference) not all presentations will be posted and we hope to see you in either the working group meeting in Berlin next year or the summer making an impact session we plan to have in Finland in the beginning of the summer.
If you want to see what happened at EURO-2018 with Making an Impact, this is the page for you.
And if you want to see what is happening at EURO-2019, you can have a look here
And if you are curious about the first working group meeting held in Paris, you can see it here.
If OR is about using modelling, maths and science to help organisations become more effective, then the essence of OR is in its applications.
The EWG-POR aims to bring together all practitioners of OR and analytics who work with clients and problem-owners to help them make better decisions, design better systems, and achieve better insights. Together, we can:
- highlight and share the practical considerations that make doing OR in the real world so interesting and so challenging – the people who must be involved, the unique details of the specific problem situation, the multiple and sometimes hidden objectives
- exchange ideas, knowledge and expertise about ways of developing and improving practice
- develop networks that can be used for collaborations or for support
- make visible the importance of the practice of OR, in EURO.
If you have any suggestions or questions, an event you want to publicise, an issue you want to share, a blog or a case study you want to post, a question you want to put to the community: please contact one of the coordinators.
