IFORS President Elise del Rosario was on hand to welcome participants of the 8th International Symposium on Operations Research and Its Applications (ISORA09), held from Sep 20 to 21, 2009 in Zhangjiajie China.

She ended by exhorting OR workers to help address the challenge, along with IFORS, of making OR useful to more people around the world.
