Welcome Letter

EURO 2021

EURO 2021 is the largest and most important conference for Operational Research and Management Science (OR/MS) in Europe organized by EURO – the European Association of Operational Research Society and the Hellenic Operational Research Society (HELORS).

The conference will be held at the University of West Attica (UNIWA) in Athens located in the area of the Holy Olive Grove ‘Eleonas’ of the ancient Athenians, where Plato taught his students.

We have selected several outstanding Plenaries & Tutorial Speakers that will present the state-of-the-art in Operations Research and outline pathways of its future developments.

Participants will have the opportunity to submit their work for publication in a series of special issues of very important journals.

At the same time, we are preparing a wonderful and enjoyable program of social events to be held as part of the conference.

After a year of lockdowns and limited travel, we are optimistic that the EURO 2021 Conference will again provide an excellent opportunity for the OR community to meet in person in a city that in a unique way stands for the identity of Europe. Of course, all necessary precautions will be taken to ensure the health and safety of conference participants.

Euro 2021 acknowledges that virtual conferences can’t entirely replicate the conference experience, which normally involves face to face meetings and networking opportunities. However, Euro 2021 is fully prepared to adjust its strategy in case of any similar situation and to convert the physical congress to a hybrid or virtual one, with main objective that the new format will continue to meet the needs of the Euro 2021 community and to ensure a viable future for the association’s activities in scientific education and professional support. Registered participants will still be eligible to participate, authors whose abstracts were accepted will be published in the digital abstract book, with e-posters available for virtual consultation and industry to have a wide selection of sponsorship opportunities.

We invite researchers, academics, practitioners, and students interested in any branch of Operational Research, mathematical modelling or economic analysis to submit abstracts or organize sessions and attend a high quality and safe conference.
