Subject online resources --- Operational Research (OR) for Developing Countries --- responsibility, creativity, optimization (by IFORS)

The aim of the IFORS (International Federation of Operational Research Societies) Developing Countries Online Resources page is to offer the OR worker all publicly-available materials on the topic of OR for Development. It also aims to provide a venue for people who are working in the area to share their completed or in-process work, learn from others, and stimulate comments and discussions on the work. Regarding IFORS Developing Countries OR resources website, its regular updates - and your possible submission of "free" (not copyright protected) material, you might occasionally visit


With this open resources page we aim to make research and application results better accessible to the many friends in the Developing Countries (DCs). We would be glad about interest.

Contributions from art and science, communication and education sectors are warmly welcome by our community which has very little access to emerging documents on arts and sciences, research, design and development. Particularly, the disciplines and areas MRI and Physics could serve the DCs very well.

The International Federation of Operational Research Societies (IFORS; http://ifors.org/) is an almost 60-year old organization which is currently composed of 51 national societies. Regional Groups of IFORS are: ALIO (The Latin American Ibero Association on Operations Research), APORS (The Association of Asian-Pacific Operational Research Societies), EURO (The Association of European Operational Research Societies), NORAM (The Association of North American Operations Research Societies). IFORS conferences are taking place every three years. On successfully celebrated IFORS 2021, Seoul, South Korea, August 22-27, 2021, please refer to http://www.ifors2020.kr/.

Thank you very much for your attention.

With kind regards,

best wishes,

Gerhard-Wilhelm Weber
