     CALL FOR PAPERS
     
     Operations management posses a number of problems of significant
     complexity whose solution would lead to more effective operations and
     bring significant economic benefits. Their solution, however, require
     novel approaches that are based on techniques and principles from both
     Operational Research and Artificial Intelligence.
     
     This conference, to be held at Salford University, Greater Manchester,
     aims to bring together researchers and practitioners working on the
     challenging problems in operations management that are at the OR-AI
     interface.
     
     Researchers and practitioners from industry and academia are invited
     to submit papers in all areas related to aspects of design,
     development, testing and implementation of intelligent management
     systems in manufacturing and service operations covering but not
     restricted to:
     
     * Process Design and Control.
     * Scheduling and Capacity Planning.
     * Maintenance and Fault Diagnosis.
     * Inventory Management.
     * Information Management in Operations.
     * Quality Management and Control.
     * Workforce Training and Management.
     
     
     KEY DATES & DEADLINES
     
     * Intention to present a paper A.S.A.P.
