International Symposium on Locational Decisions
ISOLDE, the International Symposium on Locational Decisions, is a triennial international conference devoted to the field of Locational Analysis that brings together researchers and practitioners from all over the world.
Following its triennial schedule, ISOLDE XV was supposed to be held in 2020 but had to be postponed due to Covid-19. The next physical ISOLDE XVI is now planned for 2023 and will take place in Kaiserslautern and in the Black Forest in Germany.
In order not to lose contact we organize an ISOLDE XV online symposium in 2021 as a virtual meeting. ISOLDE XV online will take place from July 5–9, 2021, with presentations and discussions in a core time between 14:00 and 18:00 (CEST/UTC+2) in order to be accessible to the majority of international scientists. The symposium will be held as a Zoom meeting. While we cannot make up for a physical meeting with intensive discussions and interaction, we still want to provide a platform for scientific exchange for the advancement of the field of Locational Analysis and its applications.
Aims and Scope
The meeting intends to gather the operations research community from different parts of the world to share experiences in the field of locational analysis. We invite participation from all areas related to location theory including, but not limited to:
