In this paper a group of participants of the 12th European Summer Institute which took place in Tenerife, Spain in June 1995 present their views on the state of the art and the future trends in Locational Analysis. The issues discussed include modeling aspects in discrete Location Theory, the influence of the distance function, the relation between discrete, network and continuous location, heuristic techniques, the state of technology and undesirable facility location. Some general questions are stated regarding the applicability of location models, promising research directions and the way technology affects the development of solution techniques.
