Description

ORSI Ahmedabad chapter is pleased to announce that the 37th Annual Convention of the Operational Research Society of India would be held during January 8-11, 2005 in Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad campus, Vastrapur, Ahmedabad-380 015. The convention theme is `Vision 2020: The Strategic Role of Operational Research’.

Motivation

• Several initiatives are underway in the Indian context to transform India as a developed nation by 2020. It is the responsibility of the scientific establishments and professional bodies to contribute towards such a transformation. ORSI being a premier scientific association is pleased to play this important catalytic role.

• Operational research is defined primarily as a discipline, which would enable the decision maker to evaluate alternatives and make a choice to enhance resource productivity and maximize the contextual objective.

• In the context of Indian transformation to a developed nation, there will be several areas where such formal approaches would be desirable and useful.

• The President of India Dr. A.P.J. Kalam has recently written a book on how India should transform itself as a developed country by 2020 (Ref. India 2020: A Vision for the New Millennium By A P J Abdul Kalam, Y S Rajan, Penguin Books India, 2002). The conference theme is inspired by this book and seeks to explore possible opportunities for OR as a scientific discipline in enabling this transformation.

• Therefore this convention is planned with an aim to bring together academicians, practitioners and policy makers to reinforce the usage of formal procedures in evolving suitable alternatives in a complex social environment.
