This conference is the 2010 edition of the annual International OR conference organised by the German OR society. In 2010, the overall theme is "Mastering Complexity".
Complexity is a natural component of the globalization process. Financial markets, traffic systems, network topologies and, last but not least, energy resource management, all contain complex behaviour and economic interdependencies which necessitate a scientific solution.
Operations Research is one of the key instruments to model, simulate and analyze such systems. In the process of developing optimal solutions, suitable heuristics and efficient procedures are some of the challenges which will be discussed at this conference.


The conference is structured according to the following topics:
