Short description of the event: 

This year Operational Research (OR) stream will cover a big variety of topics. Participants of the stream will learn how Operational Research specialists use mathematical models to improve decision making in the face of uncertainty in real problems of business, government and society.

The overview of OR methods for manufacturing and supply chain management will bring you to the understanding of global markets and international business. You will become familiar with manufacturing strategies and operations, present-day methods for production planning, transportation problems solving, demand and supply synchronization.

The modern world economy is characterized by constant growth of its complexity, increase in dynamics and thus, in its value. We also can observe financial markets development. Need in business processes flowing support causes financial instruments evolution. Stream will consist of several courses dedicated to contemporary methods of financial markets modeling.

Preliminary topics of the stream:
Financial markets modeling (Financial Mathematics; Levy Processes in Finance; Portfolio Investment Theory; Mathematical Behavioral Finance; Stochastic Calculus; Investment Optimization; Market Data Analysis)
Logistics and Supply Chain Modeling (Just In Time and Pull Production systems; Lean Manufacturing and Reverse Logistics; Supply Chains Collaborative Planning; Crisis and Disaster Operations; Optimal Transportation)
Fundamental problems (Anticipation: Phenomenon, Modeling and Occurrence in OR).

Prerequisites: proficiency in basic calculus is the only requirement for the stream courses.
