From September 25 to 27, 2019, the autumn workshop »Discrete Optimization« will take place in room I 0.01/I 0.05 of the Fraunhofer ITWM from 9:00 am to 12:30 am. The event is organized as part of the Felix-Klein-Akademie.
Scientific Board: Prof. Dr. Sven Krumke and Prof. Dr. Karl-Heinz Küfer.
Content: Discrete Optimization is the key to solving many problems from a broad spectrum of industrial and other applications. Moreover, Discrete Optimization is also linked to the recently flourishing area of Machine Learning.
Efficient decomposition techniques as well as sophisticated combinatorial algorithms have been key ingredients to the success of the applicability of Discrete Optimization to realworld problems. Problem instances that, years ago, were judged intractable due to their size and the complexity of the underlying problem can now be solved.
During the workshop, internationally recognized leading scientists will introduce to state-of-the art techniques from different areas of Discrete Optimization and discuss recent advances as well as challenges. In addition to traditional approaches from scheduling and Dantzig-Wolfe decomposition there will be presentations about the interconnection between Discrete Optimization and Machine Learning.
Lecturers: These experts are giving the lectures:
- Prof. Dr. Marc Lübbecke: RWTH Aachen University
- Prof. Dr. Sebastian Pokutta: ZIB und TU Berlin
- Prof. Dr. René Sitters: Vrije Universiteit, Amsterdam
The Felix Klein Center cordially invites all interested scientists to the lectures. Registration is not necessary, the event is free of charge. The conference language is English.
