Early registration deadline expires on 20 February, 2023 and the registration for the conference dinner (free of charge) will not be possible after this date.


During this event we want to explore the use of OR techniques in unpredictable situations that cause disruptive changes to established processes. Crisis situations might be a result of political or economic events, natural disasters or social upheaval. Radical changes can also be induced by technological advances.
