34th conference on


mathematics of operations research


Organized by LNMB
(Landelijk Netwerk Mathematische Besliskunde)

January 13 - 15, 2009

Conference Center "De Werelt", Lunteren, The Netherlands

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).
