IX Summer School
"Achievements and Applications of Contemporary Informatics,
Mathematics and Physics" (AACIMP-2014)

Annual Operational Research (OR) stream aims to provide an overview on
state-of-the-art OR. Students will explore different types of models
(both hard and soft techniques) that are used to improve
decision-making in the face of uncertainty in real problems of
business, governments or society, e.g., supply chain management,
humanitarian and commercial logistics, financial markets modelling and
also soft OR methods and approaches.

Preliminary topics of the stream are:

· Financial markets modeling: Financial Mathematics;
Computational Finance; Risk Management; Stochastic Programming and its

· Value Chain Modelling: Commercial and Humanitarian Logistics;
Supply Chain Management; Robust Products Design; Multi-criteria
Decision Making; Forecasting; Business Analytics; Robust Optimization.

Prerequisites: Proficiency in basic calculus is the only requirement
for the stream courses.
