[DMANET] Call for registration: FRICO 2016

FRICO 2016
Workshop on Future Research in Combinatorial Optimization
August 2–5, 2016
Osnabrück University, Germany

FRICO 2016 is the 20th event in a row of successful meetings
and will take place in the first week of August 2016 at
Osnabrück University, Germany.

FRICO 2016 aims to bring together young researchers (post-
graduate students, PhD students, postdocs) and to encourage
the exchange of new ideas. The focus of the meeting is to
present own results as well as work in progress from various
areas of Combinatorial Optimization and Operations Research.

FRICO is intended to be a workshop in the original meaning
of the word. In particular, we encourage the submission and
presentation of on-going and future research (even work
containing gaps and unsolved problems). Note that every
participant of the FRICO will have to give a talk. We will
also award the best talk.

In celebration of this 20th FRICO we are very pleased to
announce our invited speaker:

Prof. Dr. Jens Vygen
Research Institute for Discrete Mathematics,
University of Bonn

Similar to last years' FRICOs, we plan to have an Industry
Day where practitioners from the industry will highlight
various applications of Combinatorial Optimization.

Besides plenty of time between sessions, there will be a
social and cultural program that allows participants to
exchange ideas and have fruitful discussions.

To enable students and researchers without major financial
backing to participate at FRICO, the participation is free
of charge. Participants only have to cover their travel and
accommodation expenses.

In order to register, please send an e-mail with your name,
your affiliation and a (preliminary) title to

The workshop is limited to 30 participants.
We recommend to register as soon as possible.

The whole event is sponsored by SIEMENS and INFORM.

PS: Although the FRICO 2016 begins at August 2, we are
planning a social dinner on August 1 to get to know each
other. Please keep that in mind when you're planning your
trip to Osnabrück.
