13th Triennial International Conference of the Association of Asia Pacific Operational Research Societies (APORS)

Theme: Onward to Recovery through Operations Research 
Date: November 9-13, 2022
Venue: Seda Ayala Center Cebu

Hosted by The Operations Research Society of the Philippines (ORSP)

INVITATION
While the massive negative short term impact caused by the pandemic has been widely felt, the long term impact brought about by border restrictions and lockdown measures remains uncertain. This conference will provide a forum to discuss the role that Operations Research (OR) has played or could play on the path to Asia-Pacific regional and world recovery. How has the experience affected organizational decision-making process? Has the adoption of OR techniques impacted operations and business resilience?

With the theme Onwards to Recovery through OR, the conference seeks to bring together OR researchers, academicians and practitioners, whose collective work has sustained OR contribution to decision-making and whose current work is expected to play a vital role in  surmounting challenges on the road to recovery from the global pandemic.

The APORS 13th Conference aims to provide a forum where:

  • Practitioners will share their experiences on the problems, methodologies and outcomes of applying OR to solve real-world problems in Asia Pacific and beyond;
  • Decision-makers will share new applications of OR in non-traditional areas;
  • Researchers will present their findings dealing with the theoretical, computational, and application aspects of OR;
  • OR workers will discuss pertinent academic-, theoretical- and application- oriented issues;
  • Decision-makers could gain insights from experiences of others who have benefited from the use of OR in the public and private sectors in different countries; and
  • Participants will be given the opportunity to exchange ideas on how OR and Analytics can help deal with issues that will contribute to economic resurgence in the different regions of Asia Pacific and beyond.
  • Everyone can share unique experiences, challenges, and OR-related solutions in surviving and rising from the global pandemic.
