Welcome to the webpage of the 20th Conference of the International Federation of Operational Research Societies.

The conference will be held from 13-18 July 2014 in the city of Barcelona, in the Mediterranean coast of Spain. We are working to prepare an attractive scientific program with a diverse and high quality number of participants sharing their knowledge and experience of operational research.

The venue is Barcelona International Convention Center, which was built for Barcelona’s International Cultural Forum in 2002 and counts with all the facilities to host major conferences. Barcelona, capital of Catalonia,  is a dynamic, open, and inviting city, which displays the characteristics of major Mediterranean cities and inherits a millenarian tradition in science, art and commerce.

We invite you to learn, enjoy, and be part of the great IFORS community by participating in IFORS 2014. Organize a session, give a talk and experience this great city!
