[DMANET] Early registration deadline: 4th conference of the EURO Practitioners' Forum

Early registration deadline: 4th conference of the EURO Practitioners' Forum
April 20 and 21, 2023
Zuse Institute Berlin (ZIB)

Dear colleagues,

We cordially invite you to join us at the
4th conference of the EURO Practitioners' Forum on the topic of
"OR as a resilient technology: adapting to disruptions and future challenges"

During this event, we want to explore the use of OR techniques in unpredictable
situations that cause disruptive changes to established processes. Crises might
result from political or economic events, natural disasters, or social
upheaval. Technological advances such as AI techniques or Quantum Computing
can also induce radical changes.

The conference will take place on April 20-21, 2023, at Zuse Institute Berlin.

Registration is free and still open. However, the early registration deadline
is on Monday, February 20. Registration for the conference dinner will not be
possible after this date.
