Welcome to the Seventh International
Conference on Operations and Quantitative Management (ICOQM-VII)
organized by AIMS International, International Forum of
Management Scholars (INFOMS) and University of Rajasthan.
The conference is also supported by International Journal
of Operations and Quantitative Management (www.ijoqm.org).
Jaipur, the vibrant capital of Rajasthan,
is popularly known as the 'Pink
City of India' because of the pink-coloured
buildings in its old city. It sits on a dry lake bed in
a somewhat arid landscape surrounded by forts and palaces.
The city is unique in its straight-line design. It has been
world famous for centuries for its grandeur, pageantry,
royal pomp and vibrant colours. Red sand stone and marble
palaces with intricate mirror work walls dot the whole city.
The Hawa Mahal, Amber Fort and the City Palace are embossed
on to this beautiful city as well and make Jaipur one of
the most attractive tourist spots in India.
The City owes its name, its foundation and its careful
planning to the great warrior-
astronomer Maharaja Jai Singh II. In 1728, he built the
remarkable observatory, Jantar Mantar, which is still one
of main attractions of Jaipur.
Situated about 270 Kms. (170 miles) from Delhi, Jaipur
forms one of the three vertices of the Golden Triangle of
Indian Tourism of DELHI – JAIPUR – AGRA. It
is well connected by road, rail and air to the major cities
and attractions in India.
