The 35th National Operations Research and Industrial Engineering Congress (ORIE 2015) will be held September 9th through 11th, 2015 at Middle East Technical University, Ankara, Turkey.
The theme of the Congress is “Operations Research and Industrial Engineering in the Management of Natural Resources.” With this theme, we aim to draw attention to the role of ORIE and promote its use in managing the limited natural resources that are essential for the continuation of life on earth and yet are being rapidly depleted.
ORIE 2015 Annual Congress will include tutorials, panel discussions, and special sessions on socio-technical systems in general, with a particular focus on effective planning, management and operation of the natural resources. In addition to these special sessions, many sessions will be devoted for students, researchers, and practitioners from all branches of ORIE and other related areas to share their research and experiences. There will be several competitions during the congress and awards will be presented to the winners. The number abstracts submitted for evaluation as possible presentations at the Congress has outnumbered those of the previous Congresses by far. We are delighted to see such a boost in an ORIE event.
We would like to thank you for your strong interest and we look forward to seeing many of you at the Congress.
Prof. Dr. Murat Köksalan
