During the period 1989 - 1998 the LNMB has organized every year one workshop. Since 1999 the LNMB only supports workshops. These workshops are usually organized as part of an NWO-project.

Also since 1989, the LNMB is co-organizer of the Lunteren Conferences on the Mathematics of OR. In January 2000 the 25
