Operations Research Applications in the field of Information and Communication Technologies
Traditionally, Operations Research is the scientific study of logistic networks to provide for decision support at all levels in order to optimize production and distribution of the commodity flows. Nowadays, these logistic networks have become very large and may range over several countries, while the demands for quality of service have grown similarly to ever higher standards. Generally one agrees that to maintain such large networks successfully, one needs the control of all the information flows through the network, that is, continuous information on the status of the resources. In this sense one could say that Operations Research and Information Technology has joined together. This journal aims to analyze several aspects and problems that arise in such modern logistic and communication networks.
