×M4. OR methods and applications

This session invites papers that seek to advance the general field of OR, but that may not fit neatly into one of our other sessions. This may include, but is not limited to theoretical developments or applications of combinatorial optimisation methods (e.g., linear, integer, non-linear or stochastic programming, metaheuristics, evolutionary methods, etc.) and other data science techniques (e.g., queuing theory, simulation, Markov decision processes, data envelopment analysis, optimal control, real options analysis, etc.).

Key topics: Operations research, Optimisation, Simulation, Markov decision processes
