EurOMA President, Giovanni Perrone

Dear EurOMA Friends,

Next year we are going to celebrate the 25th anniversary of EurOMA in Budapest. It will be the perfect occasion to remember all the achievements of our community, to discuss our future and to establish the further goals and objectives of our society.

Together with the Hungarian team in charge of organizing this event, I would like to invite all of you to join us in Budapest for the 2018 EurOMA Conference to celebrate this important milestone for our association.

Looking forward to seeing you in Budapest,


Conference Chairs

The theme of the conference aims at fulfilling EurOMA’s vision in the new era of networks, big data, and advanced data analytics by giving theory-based, practically relevant, generalizable and innovative answers to current and emerging issues in services, manufacturing and capability development (that is servitization, at its core). We also intend to broaden EurOMA’s base in three ways: by highlighting the interfaces between operations management – engineering and operations management – data analytics, by securing initial organizational commitments from reputable academic and industrial partners and, lastly, by placing the conference, after 13 years, again in the centre of Europe, in the inspiring environment of Hungarian history and culture.

The conference will be held in the state-of-the-art Q building on the campus of the Budapest University of Technology and Economics. The Q Buildingis on the Buda side of Budapest and it is easily accessible by public transport (tram, underground, bus).

The historical, easy-to-access locations, the state-of-the-art facilities and the cooperation of academic institutions from the forefront of engineering and management research with world-class companies guarantee, we believe, the success of EurOMA 2018 focusing on multidisciplinary approaches, and the integration of varied knowledge bases.

We are looking forward to welcoming you in Budapest.
