BOS / SOR 2018 Conference in Palais Staszic in Warsaw, September 24th-26th, 2018

You are cordially invited to participate in the consecutive BOS / SOR Conference: Systems and Operational Research – BOS / SOR 2018.

BOS / SOR 2018 Conference is organised by the Polish Operational and Systems Research Society and the Systems Research Institute of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw. The Conference shall take place in Palais Staszic, in the historical heart of Warsaw, the seat of numerous scientific organisations, on September 24th – 26th, 2016 (Monday through Wednesday).

BOS / SOR Conferences are among the most important forums for the Polish community of scholars and practitioners within the broadly conceived systems and operational research domains. We invite also cordially the participants from abroad. The meetings, organised every two years host 150-200 participants, who present some 100 papers, which, after a peer review procedure, are published. The subject matters of the Conferences are quite broad, ranging from theoretical and methodological issues up to applications in industry, economy, education, military, management and administration. A part of the Conferences traditionally takes on the form of guest-organised seminars, frequently reaching the highest scientific levels.

We have the pleasure of cordially inviting you to the next bi-annual BOS conference, BOS 2016, which will be held in Warsaw, at Palais Staszic, on October 12th – 14th, 2016 (Wednesday through Friday). For details, see under BOS 2016. You can also fill in now and send us the Registration Form.

Since its very inception the Society adopted as one of the essential forms of activity the organisation of the cyclical national conferences of the community it represents. The conferences, with the acronym BOS, constitute a forum for presentation of achievements and for discussion of the substantial and organisational issues of the community.

Until now the following BOS conferences took place:

BOS 88 in Książ (together with the Systems Research Institute - SRI PAS),

BOS 91 in Warsaw (together with SRI PAS and the Military Technical Academy - WAT),

BOS 93 in Warsaw (with SRI PAS, National Defence Academy - AON, and WAT),

BOS 95 in Gdynia (with SRI PAS, WAT, and the maritime schools in Gdynia),

BOS 97 in Kutno,

BOS 2000 in Ciechocinek,

BOS 2002 in Warsaw, together with SRI PAS and the Warsaw School of Information Technology (WIT),

BOS 2004 in Warsaw, together with SI PAS and WIT,

BOS 2006 in Szczecin, together with SRI PAS and the University of Szczecin,

BOS 2008 in Rembertów by Warsaw, together with SRI PAS and AON.

BOS 2010 in Bydgoszcz, organised together with SRI PAS and the University of Technology and Natural Science in Bydgoszcz (UTP).

BOS 2012 took place in Warsaw, in September 2012, at Palais Staszic, and was organized in cooperation with SRI PAS.

BOS 2014 took place in Warsaw, in September 2014, at Palais Staszic, and was (highly successfully) collocated with some international meetings (IEEE Intelligent Systems, SMPS 2014, etc.). BOS 2014 was organized in cooperation with SRI PAS.

Independently of the BOS series the Society organised and co-organised a number of other meetings, both national and international (
collaboration). In particular, the international working group MODEST, affiliated with the Society, organised its workshops, and the Society collaborated with the Systems Research Institute in the organisation of the conferences on the socio-economic systemic transformation in modern world.

Selected - international - conferences outside of the BOS series are:

"The Systems Analysis Approach to Environmental and Natural Resources Management in the Baltic Region", Gdańsk, 26-29 September 1988 (with SRI PAS and the Danish Operational Research Society).

"Transition to Advanced Market Economies", Warsaw, 22-25 June 1992 (in the framework of the
Association, with IFORS as IFORS SPC-2, SRI PAS, and some other institutions).

MODEST - Modelling and Analysing the Economies in Transition", September 1995, Mądralin by Warsaw (MODEST together with The Interfaces Institute).

MODEST - Modelling and Analysing the Economies in Transition II", September 1996, Jabłonna by Warsaw (MODEST with SRI PAS, University of Siena, Italy, and The Interfaces Institute).
