The aim of the meeting, organized for and by young researchers, was to represent and provide visibility to the newer generations of talented researchers in Statistics and Operations Research. The meeting counted with 41 excellent participants (PhD students and young PhDs) coming from Spain, Portugal, and France. The invited and contributed talks were presented in a single continuous session, thus providing the opportunity to listen and speak to every attendant.

Four renowned international researchers took part as plenary speakers: Pierre Bonami (IBM), Juan Antonio Cuesta-Albertos (University of Cantabria), Ingrid Van Keilegom (University of Leuven), and Rafael Martí (University of Valencia). They delivered excellent plenary sessions that encouraged the participants to explore new challenging areas in Statistics and Operations Research.

The meeting was held under the auspice of the Spanish Society of Statistics and Operations Research (SEIO, Spanish acronym). The meeting was economically supported by SEIO, EURO, and the Faculty of Economics of the University of Granada, while The Institute of Mathematics of the University of Granada (IE-math-GR) provided the facilities for the meeting. The Portuguese and French societies APDIO and ROADEF supported the attendance of Portuguese and French participants.

Looking for the excellence, the meeting was chaired by the last four members of the “Ramiro Melendreras” SEIO award: F. Javier Martín-Campo (Complutense University of Madrid), Carmen Aguilera-Morillo (Carlos III University of Madrid, UC3M), Eduardo García-Portugués (UC3M), and Beatriz Sinova (University of Oviedo). The award recognizes the work of young researchers in Statistics and Operations Research. The meeting was a huge success thanks to the enthusiastic work of the Organizing Committee, chaired by Víctor Blanco and Javier Álvarez-Liébana (together with F.J. Esquivel, D. Miranda, B. Cobo, S.M. Valenzuela, D. Molina, and J.L. Romero).

Thanks to the tireless work of the Scientific and Organizing Committees members, together with the eagerness of all the participants, the conference was held in a friendly and warm atmosphere that, hopefully, will lead to new and common projects. One of them, the forthcoming 2nd SYSORM in 2019!
