------------------------------------------------------------------ CONFERENCE APPROACH ------------------------------------------------------------------

The CLAIO (Congreso Latino Americano en Investigacion de Operaciones), celebrated every other year in different Latin American cities, is sponsored by the Latin-Ibero-American Association for Operations Research (ALIO). It started in Rio de Janeiro, in 1982, and has alternated since between Rio, Buenos Aires, Santiago and Mexico City. Their main goals are to further the exchange of experiences; to contribute, establish, and deepen ties between researchers and practitioners in the region and to help young undergraduate and graduate students in their professional development.

Next CLAIO will take place in Mexico City, September 4-8, 2000, and will be organized by the Mexican Institute for Operations Research and Systems (IMSIO). Mexico City, the largest city in the world, is modern and cosmopolitan. It is an exciting combination of pre-Hispanic, colonial and modern monuments and architecture, built over the ruins of Tenochtitlan, the Aztec capital.
