Operational research (OR) is a scientific discipline focused on applications of mathematical models and methods in technology, economy and social systems. This science has formed in the first half of the former century. The problems solved by OR methods deal with complex interactions among people, materials and money that arises in business, communication networks, medicine, financing, military applications, environment, etc. Developing the modern knowledge society, it is of great importance to be able to efficiently solve problems of such kind. Organisations may seek a very wide range of operational improvements, for example, a higher efficiency, better customer service, higher quality or lower costs, etc. Whatever the business engineering aim is, OR can offer much flexibility and adaptability in providing objective help. Most of the problems that OR tackles are messy and complex, often entailing a considerable uncertainty. OR can use advanced quantitative methods, modelling, problem structuring, simulation and other analytical techniques to examine assumptions, facilitate an in -depth understanding and decide on practical actions. OR basics are included into many teaching modules, and the study of OR is very important in teaching young specialists who can apply OR technologies in their activities. The purpose of the organised conference LOTD-2010 is dissemination of OR knowledge among young researchers.
