International Conference for junior scientists

Operations Research and Application



8 April 2016

 Studentu str. 50, Kaunas, Lithuania

Operations Research (OR) is the science field of mathematical models and methods used for decision-making in various fields. This science has been formed in the first half of the last century. Problems solved by OR methods mainly relates to personnel, finance, services and flows. There is a wide range of application areas: business, computing, communications systems, construction, transport, medicine, economics, finance engineering banking, military, management and so on. It is essential to deal with such problems in the development of the knowledge society in any country.

Modern OR includes methods to solve practical problems, based on well-developed theoretical disciplines: queuing theory, decision theory, game theory, mathematical programming theory and so on. Operations research forms a theoretical basis for information technology science. This is essential in training of young specialists in Lithuania and everywhere in the world, placing value on research and improving skills by applying operations research techniques in their activities. Forthcoming OT-2016 conference is dedicated to the spread of operations research knowledge among Lithuanian and foreign young scientists.


There is no registration fee for young scientists (PhD and master students, as well as junior scientists up to age 35) and for other members from LITORS and EURO. Number of presenters is limited to 20-25.

To participate in the conference, university and college students, high school students and everyone interested in operations research are invited.
