The IFORS Newsletter dated September 2008 has recently arrived on the web (HERE).
It is a colourful edition, with several accounts of the 2008 conference at Sandton in South Africa. My friend, former colleague, and predecessor as editor of IAOR (International Abstracts in Operations Research) has printed his diary and thoughts about the event. That is one of the worthwhile articles in the newsletter, even though Graham is described as one of the "stall warts" of IFORS, and his account is a "dairy account". Spell checkers are wonder full!
