     This special issue is a collection of refereed articles selected from the 13th International Industrial Engineering Conference (IIEC 2017). The initial selection was made by Dr. Hamed Fazlollahtabar who also wrote the following description. The accepted articles were reviewed going through the usual reviewing process of IJOR.

     The 13th International Industrial Engineering Conference (IIEC 2017) hosted by Mazandaran University of Science and Technology, Babol, Iran, was held on 22nd and 23rd of February 2017 at Mizban Complex, Babolsar, Mazandaran, Iran. The total number of papers received was 805, among which 378 papers were accepted in two categories of oral presentations (185 papers) and poster presentations (193 papers). The scientific committee of the conference selected a number of papers to be extended and considered for a special issue of the Iranian Journal of Operations Research (IJOR). For this, 25 selected papers were considered and 17 papers were chosen for the second round of review. Having strict review criteria, 11 papers were then selected and refereed for a final decision. After the review process, 6 papers were finally accepted for the special issue. The contents of the accepted papers follow here. Vehicle routing and scheduling in an environmentally friendly manner attracted researchers to develop both mathematical programming models and heuristics as solution approaches. Green supply network design under uncertainty was considered for a multi-mode production system. Facility planning and hub location problem in competitive conditions and multiple allocations were investigated. Robust optimization philosophy as an uncertainty treatment approach was studied using event-driven and attribute-driven concepts. An interesting application of operations research in forestry was studied developing stochastic dynamic programming with Markov chains.

     My special gratitude goes to Professor Nezam Mahdavi-Amiri, Editor-in-chief, and the editorial board members of IJOR for their cooperation and support during the past 10 months of preparing this special issue.
