[DMANET] GoTHA workshop on Robust scheduling

Dear colleagues,

you are cordially invited to participate in the 1-day workshop on "Robust
Scheduling" at the University of Montpellier on the 27th of April 2017. The
aim of the workshop is to gather researchers interested in theoretical
aspects of robust scheduling, such as moderately exponential algorithms,
FPT, exact polynomial algorithms, and approximation algorithms. The
workshop is organized in the context of the GOThA working group
<> on scheduling and the ROBUST ANR

We are currently planning to have the following talks:

Klaus Jansen - *New algorithmic results for bin packing and scheduling*
Sebastian Stiller - *Robust Combinatorial Optimization*
Marin Bougeret - *Robust scheduling with budgeted uncertainty*

*Kim Thang - Online Primal-Dual Algorithms with Configuration Linear

In addition, there is room for 2 or 3 contributed presentation, lasting
roughly 30 minutes. If you are interested in giving a presentation, or
simply to participate to the workshop, please send your name and
affiliation to Marin Bougeret( The participation
is free but registration is necessary for organizing the lunch and coffee
breaks. The deadline for registration is on the 15th of April 2017. Please
contact us before that if you wish to give a presentation.

The workshop will be held at the LIRMM laboratory, which is 40 minutes by
tramway from Montpellier train station.
