Many real life problems can be modelled using operations research and statistical techniques. Recently, a number of advancements have taken place to enrich the theory and applications of these interdisciplinary areas. This International Conference aims to bring together researchers, engineers, scientists, industrialists and practitioners to interact and disseminate knowledge for win-win situations of modelling and applications alike. The topics of interest for RTORS-2017 include several areas related to theory and practice of operations research and statistics. Novel multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary audience are welcome from the fields of Mathematics and allied Sciences, Engineering, Architecture, Business, Economics, Management, Life Sciences and many more.
