It is with great pleasure that we announce the 23rd Conference of the International Federation of Operational Research Societies, IFORS 2023.
This important world conference is held every three years to bring together academia, practitioners, and experts in the field of Management Science from more than 60 countries and to contribute to its development through mutual academic and information exchange. Since its inaugural meeting in the United Kingdom in 1957, this conference has become a large international academic conference involving more than 2,000 professionals from academia and industry alike.
We are working on putting together a very exiting conference, with a very strong scientific program and the possibility of visiting Chile, a very attractive country which has so many things to offer. Stay tuned for the news on the conference, which will be available in this website as well as through the announcements in scientific, professional and social networks. We look forward to seeing everyone in person in Santiago in 2023!

The International Federation of Operational Research Societies (IFORS) is a 60-year old organization which is currently composed of 50 national societies. Its beginnings date from 1955, when the vice-president of the Operations Research Society of America (ORSA) sent a proposal for an international conference to the secretary of the UK society, the Operational Research Society (ORS). The French Society, SOFRO, was added as a sponsoring society to what would be the first in a line of triennial conferences. This was the 1957 Oxford Conference, described by Maurice Kirby as the fifth of the seven defining moments in OR history (Cummins, 1998).
