Call For Papers


"Energy, Markets and Mobility" /


The organizers of the OR 2012 conference are glad to invite you to this conference to be held in Hannover, Germany, from September 4-7, 2012.

We have chosen a rich and exiting main topic: "Energy, Markets and Mobility"

The OR 2012 conference in Hannover will address these topics from an OR perspective, treating them not only in isolation, but also with respect to their numerous and exciting interconnections, such as:

* New energy for new mobility concepts
* New market mechanisms for sustainable energy production

to name but a few. We will draw on the vast local expertise to organize an exciting and truly interdisciplinary conference in Hannover.

As in former years, the conference will also provide ample opportunities to present OR-related research results in 18 different streams, representing the many problem-oriented and methodological aspects of Operations Research as a rich and vivid academic field.

Both the Program and the Organizing Committee are preparing a highly attractive scientific, academic and social program and we are very much looking forward to welcoming you in Hannover! A social highlight will be the festive conference dinner in the "Great Hall of the Maharajah" of Hannover's Adventure Zoo.

Please visit the conference website ( for detailed information.
