[DMANET] CFP for ESI 2015 Szeged

Dear colleagues,

The OR Society of Hungary is pleased to announce a EURO Summer Institute
(ESI) on Online Optimization. The ESI will take place at University of
Szeged, from 15th to 27th June in 2015, the homepage of the event can be
found at

EURO Summer and Winter Institutes (ESWI) provide an excellent forum for
PhD students and early career researchers to discuss their research at
length with experts in the field, as well as forming links with other
early stage researchers. For further details, see

Around twenty early stage researchers from the EURO member societies will
be invited to participate at the ESWI. They must be very early career
academics (PhD students and/or those who have less than two years
research experience post PhD). They have to present the material of an
unpublished piece of work, discussing it with others and with the invited
senior experts in the field. The ESI will also present a series of
lectures by the invited senior experts. After the ESI, the papers can be
submitted to a special issue of an OR publication (TBA).

Apart from the senior experts, no one can participate in an ESWI more than
once in their lifetime. EURO provides a substantial contribution towards
all the ESWI expenses 'on location' (room and board, social programs,
etc.) and sponsorship is being sought to meet the remaining part of these
expenses. The travel costs, however, must be borne by the participants
themselves, eventually with the support of their national OR societies.
Applicants have to submit an unpublished paper to the Scientific
Committee, along with a curriculum vitae. The Committee will select and
rank the candidates on the basis of submitted papers, and afterwards
channel this information to the national OR societies for funding decisions.

Candidates who fulfill the eligibility rules but exceed the quota of 20
participants might be accepted, in a limited number. These candidates
should cover their own expenses. Fees will be also required, but their
amount will be specified later.

Interested candidates are asked to notify us in advance in order to help
us assess the likely number of participants. Please send an email to if you are planning to submit a paper.
