[DMANET] 8th edition of the Winter School on Network Optimization (last announcement)

The 8th edition of the Winter School on Network Optimization will take place at Hotel Estoril-Éden, Monte Estoril, from the 14th to the 18th of January 2019. Its main objective is to provide an opportunity for PhD students to get together and attend high level courses in the field of Network Optimization. Non-PhD students are welcome to attend the school, but the number of participants is limited and priority will be given to PhD students. In this edition of the school, the lecturers and subjects to be addressed are:

Markus Leitner (Univ. of Vienna) - Layered graph approaches for combinatorial optimization problems;

William Cook (Univ. of Waterloo) - The Traveling Salesman Problem and Computational Discrete Optimization;

Giovanni Rinaldi (IASI) - Maximum weight cuts in graphs and extensions

Francisco Saldanha da Gama (Univ. de Lisboa) - Logistics network design: capturing uncertainty and risk;

Tolga Bektas (Univ. of Southampton) - Compact formulations, projections and some polyhedral results for the vehicle routing problem.

The school is part of the activities of the of the ENOG (European Network Optimization Group) and of
CMAFCIO (Centro de Matemática, Aplicações Fundamentais e Investigação Operacional) University of Lisbon.

The event is also endorsed by the EURO (the Association of European Societies) and APDIO (the Portuguese OR society).

Potential participants are invited to submit their CVs to the address no later than the 31st October .
