|Abstract:Â||This working group, which is concerned with operational research methods and applications to agricultural science in its broad meaning (i.e. including Forest Management and Fisheries), was formed in 2003 within the European Association of Operational Research Societies (EURO). The first meeting of the group was held at the former Silsoe Research Institute in 2004. The group intends to have regular meetings in Europe at approximately yearly intervals, usually within the EURO Conferences. However, the next meeting will be held in 2008 within the British Operational Research Society’s OR50 conference in York, followed by the EURO XXIII conference in Bonn in 2009 and the EURO XXIV conference in Lisbon in 2010. The third meeting of the working group; chaired by Dr L. M. PlÃ of the University of Lleida, with the assistance of D. L. Sandars of Cranfield University, and organised as a stream within the XXII EURO Conference; was held at the University of Economics in Prague from 8th-11th July 2007 where the following papers were read in a set of 10 sessions.|
