Thank you for participating at the OR2016 conference. We hope you have gained new insights, shared your expertise with others, recruited your next employees or found your next job, or just enjoyed meeting new and old friends that work in the intriguing field of operations research, management science, data science and analytics. There were about 700 participants at the conference – practitioners and academics from mathematics, computer science, business/economics, and related fields. The scientific program included around 475 presentations. Selected refereed papers have been published in a post-conference proceedings volume by Springer. The conference theme, Analytical Decision Making, has placed emphasis on the process of researching complex decision problems and devising effective solution methods towards better decisions. This includes classical mathematical optimization, statistics, and simulation techniques, yet more and more such approaches are complemented by methods and tools from computer science for the processing of data and the design and implementation of information systems. Recent advances in information technology enable the treatment of big data volumes and real-time predictive and prescriptive business analytics to drive decisions and actions. Problems are modeled and treated under consideration of uncertainty, risk management, behavioral issues, and strategic decision situations. This certainly necessitates interdisciplinary collaborations regarding different scientific areas and application domains.

If you any have questions please contact Andreas Fink and Martin J. Geiger, who were chairing the program and organizing committees.
