Erice is among the oldest cities in Sicily. The town is placed on the homonymous mount Eryx, religious center of the Elimi, which is famous for its temple where the Phoenicians worshipped Astarte, the Greeks Aphrodite and the Romans Venus. Throughout history Erice was contended by many different populations, and each of them left a palpable sense
of history. Erice is nowadays an enchanting wonderfully preserved Mediaeval town offering the most breathtaking views in Sicily.

Dear colleagues,
We are pleased to invite you to attend the first AIROYoung Workshop on "Emerging Optimization Problems in Complex Networks" which will take place at the Statistical Department of the University of
Rome, Sapienza on 16th-17th February 2017.

AIROYoung is the youth chapter of AIRO, the Italian Operational Research Society. Its aim is to foster collaboration between students and early-career researchers interested in the field of OR, and to provide them with new opportunities to advance their carreer and expand their network. It also strives to connect the demand and the offer in the OR job market, both in academia and in the industry.

Participation to the workshop is free of charge and it is possible to reserve your accommodation at a special rate booking via AIROYoung.
Furthermore, AIROYoung members can request a travel grant.

We invite contributions from all researchers in the area of Network Optimization. Young researchers (PhD students, recent PhD graduates) can also contribute their work on other areas. These works will be presented in a special «Young Researchers» session.

15 Jan 2017 20 Jan 2017 Winter School on Optimization and Operations Research

Toggle description

The objective of the Winter School is to expose the audience to modern topics on Optimization and Operations Research. Every year, two prominent researchers are invited to provide tutorials on selected topics, and to discuss some of their recent research with the students. Designed for doctoral education, the course is open to academic researchers (professors, researchers, PhD students) and professionals (from industry and public authorities), interested in optimization and operations research.

The course is organized by Prof. Michel Bierlaire, Transport and Mobility Laboratory (TRANSP-OR), School of Architecture, Civil and Environmental Engineering (ENAC), Ecole Polytechnique de Lausanne (EPFL). It takes place in Zinal, a ski resort in the Swiss Alps. The special environment triggers a specific atmosphere that encourages scientific and personal exchanges among the participants.

In addition to the lectures, workshops will be organized every day where the students will have the opportunity to work on recent papers of the invited lecturers, under their guidance.
