Welcome to XIX CLAIO Lima 2018

We invite members of ALIO and the worldwide Operations Research community to take part of CLAIO/COPIOS 2018, to be held in Lima, Perú, September 24-27, 2018. This joint conference consists of the XIX Latin-Iberian-American Conference on Operations Research (CLAIO), the biannual conference organized by the Latin-American Association of Operations Research Societies (ALIO), and the 8th COPIOS, the annual conference organized by the Peruvian Society of Operations Research (SOPIOS). The academic program will consist of parallel, technical and special sessions, plenary talks and tutorials covering several aspects of OR.

Additionally, we'll have the 1st CLAIO TECH, an exhibition of Advanced Analytics & Optimization Technologies from Companies, Universities, and Operations Research Centers.

We extend our invitation to visit Lima and attend CLAIO 2018. Lima, the city of kings, capital of Peru, was the capital of the Viceroyalty of Peru, a city that is modernized respecting its colonial and pre-Columbian past.
