Business Modeling/Operation Research/Big Data Analytics are key enablers for the next wave of innovation and growth across most industries and will address complex issues and systems that involve multiple objectives, alternatives, trade-offs, and large amounts of data and situations involving uncertainty or risk. These papers address new technical advances in these areas and provide valuable insights through the applications of real-world case studies.
