Cordial Invitation

21st European Conference on Operational Research

in Reykjavik, Iceland, July 2-5, 2006



For EURO 2006 a Systems and Game Theory stream is in
preparation and you are cordially invited to participate, present
a paper and exchange ideas with others on all stages of this
area of application developed by modern OR! This stream will
consist of four or more sessions which are going to draw a
state-of-the-art picture of models and algorithms from systems
and game theory applied to any field of science, economy and
engineering, to finance and environmental protection. The stream
and session organizers represent its backgrounds in discrete
and continuous systems, optimization and dynamics, along with
theory and methods in many modern applications of game and
control theory. Special emphasis will be given to methods drawn
from all of OR. Papers in all aspects of systems and game theory
are welcome.
