Welcome to ISOLDE XII

ISOLDE XII will be held in July 2012 in Nagoya and Kyoto. The schedule is from July 19th, Thu. to 24th, Tue.

The ISOLDE Conference, held every three years, involves scientists and practitioners, whose research interests deal with quantitative and qualitative methods for location theory, modeling and planning. All related areas of economics, engineering, geography, mathematics and operations research from both academic and business points of view are invited to participate.

Following a tradition started with ISOLDE III, the conference will take place in two locations: Nagoya and Kyoto. In the first half of the conference, we will meet at Nagoya Campus, Nanzan University. Before the sessions start, we will have a welcome reception on Wednesday evening, 18th July. After the sessions in Nagoya, we will move to Kyoto, an old capital of Japan, by bus in the afternoon on Saturday. All sessions in the second half of the conference will take place at Hotel Granvia Kyoto.
