About Kathmandu

Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal, is situated in a valley which is an open air museum of famous sites, ancient temples and shrines, golden pagodas, and inspiring deities. It is a city of inexhaustible historic artistic and cultural interest. Several beautiful and interesting villages and towns surrounding the valley offer ideal destinations for mini treks. The dazzling Himalayan peaks are visible from several points on the mountains around the valley.

The whole world witnessed the massive earthquake and numerous after-shocks on April 26, 27 and May 12 of 2015 that rocked the country. More than a year later, Nepal is still trying to recover and rebuild itself. This is where Operations Research can help the country deal with the aftermath of this natural disaster. It is but fitting that Operations Researchers see for themselves how relevant OR can be in this situation. Thus, the selection of the Conference theme, OR and Development.

The conference aims to bring OR academicians and practitioners within the APORS community and throughout the world together to discuss theoretical development and practical applications of OR and related areas. The conference also provides a platform for sharing not only among professionals but also for the enrichment of students as they interact with experts.

The THEME of the conference is “Operations Research and Development”. The research papers related to applications of operations research tools and techniques for development in any sector, such as, education, health, financial institutions, governance, energy, environment, water, agriculture are welcome. The research works of Ph D scholars and graduate students are also welcome.
