About STAtOR

The Society for Statistics and Operations Research (VvS+OR) has launched its latest regular journal STAtOR in April 2000. Few people will have trouble to explaining where its name comes from. Statistics and Operational Research hope that the name STAtOR will honor as the solid, binding element in the dynamic life of the society as a substitute of the VvS+OR bulletin.

The last  VvS+OR Bulletin dates from the end of the year 1999. Its function as newsletter, which it served in an excellent manner for 32 years, came to an end naturally in the new computer age. Announcements appear on higher frequency by e-mail and are easily accessible on the VvS+OR website. However, over the years, the VvS+OR bulletin had become the most read publication by members of the society. It kept abreast the members of each other's activititiest and the happenings in the society.

STAtOR reproduces the latter function in a contemporary manner. A wish, who had long lived in parts of the society, has been fulfilled this way. STAtOR has become a new and attractive periodically issue with  journalistic-style articles on interesting applications and developments in statistics and operations research and background information on institutions and individuals from these disciplines. The signals indicate that STAtOR for VvS+OR members, but also within interested companies in statistics and operations research, provides fun for reading and serviceable information. Partly on the basis of these comments STAtOR has become a journal to be proud off.

The Board of the VvS+OR.
