Operational Research in Iran

A new journal of O.R. has been launched, and has now published two issues. This is the Iranian Journal of Operations Research, published from Tehran. On first glance, its contents are generally theoretical, but that is true of many other O.R. related journals. The first abstracts from it will appear in IAOR in early 2010.

What is not clear is hows strong the fledgling O.R. socety is in Iran. The web address suggests that there may be plans for it to develop, but the English version is limited at present.
