The Scientific and Organization Committees, chaired by Greet Vanden Berghe, Rubén Ruiz and Ramón Álvarez-Valdés, are preparing a high quality scientific program and an exciting social program for the Conference.

We are convinced that the EURO 29th Conference will be an excellent opportunity for the OR community to get together again in a pleasant atmosphere, and, thus, we are looking forward to meeting you in sunny Valencia, in 2018!
