Abstract

The Austrian Society for Operations Research (Oesterreichische Gesellschaft fuer Operations Research, OEGOR) was founded at the Vienna University of Technology in 1978. OEGOR is a nonprofit scientific organization, which supports application and promotes development of operations research (OR) methods with particular focus on efficient knowledge transfer among high-profile scientific research and decision makers in all areas. Hereby, our working groups play a key role in metaheuristics, OR in finance, OR in health care, production and logistics, theory and practice of optimization, and mathematical économics and optimization in energy. As a nationwide association, OEGOR also represents Austria in the international network of OR experts such as the Association of European Operational Research Societies (EURO) and the International Federation of Operational Research Societies (IFORS). In the past, several major Austrian OR conferences were organized in cooperation with fellow societies such as: (i) Vienna, OR 1990, and (ii) Klagenfurt, OR 2002. A European Summer Institute (ESI) on nonlinear methods in combinatorial optimization for EURO will be held at the University of Klagenfurt in September 2010. OEGOR cooperates with fellow societies from Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovakia, Slovenia, and Croatia to edit and finance the SCI-indexed journal, Central European Journal of Operations Research (CEJOR), which is published by Springer.
