Robert Rooderkerk, Associate Professor of Operations Management at Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University, The Netherlands, delivered the Keynote Speech for the meeting.

4th Meeting of the EURO Group on Retail Operations

The third European Working Group Meeting is scheduled for May 23rd to 25th 2018 in Eindhoven, Netherlands.

We plan to hold this meeting annually, always in May/June to create a sustainable and long-lasting OR community that is working on retail topics.

Furthermore, we will continue as in the past to organize a stream on "Retail Demand and Supply" at the EURO and IFORS conferences. It is also the objective to organize further streams/session on OR applications in retail operations at other conferences such as POMS Annual conference or International Conference on Operations Research.
