Dr. Fahimah Al-Awadhi (conference chairman) welcomes you to the "Challenges in Statistics and Operations Research" conference. The objective of this conference is to bring together researchers/practitioners from around the world and the gulf region to share their research findings in the fields of Probability, Statistics, Operations Research as well as their applications. The conference has the following two parallel tracks:

Probability and Statistics: This track covers, but not restricted to, the following topics:

  • Probability theory
  • Stochastic processes
  • Time series
  • Distribution theory
  • Computational and applied statistics and parametric
  • Bayesian and nonparametric statistics
Operations Research This track covers, but not restricted to, the following topics:
  • Discrete/stochastic optimization
  • Integer programming and combinatorial optimization
  • Network optimization
  • Multi objectives optimization
  • Heuristics and meta-heuristics
  • Simulation
  • Production planning and control
  • Supply chain management
  • Scheduling and project planning
  • Quality control
  • Reliability
