Twenty-seventh conference on


The mathematics of operations research


 

Organized by LNMB
(Landelijk Netwerk Mathematische Besliskunde)

January 15-17, 2002
 

Conference Center "De Werelt", Lunteren, The Netherlands
 

The annual meeting of Dutch senior and junior researchers
in the Mathematics of Operations Research.
The program offers high-quality research and applications
and should appeal to both academic researchers
and to management consultants in trade and industry.
The conference is sponsored by the Gebiedsbestuur Exacte Wetenschappen (NWO),
the Thomas Stieltjes Institute for Mathematics and the Mathematical Research Institute (MRI).
