Hausdorff School: “Computational Combinatorial Optimization”

Dates: September 12 - 16, 2022

Venue: Arithmeum (Gerhard-Konow-Hörsaal, Bonn)

Organizers: William Cook (Waterloo) and Stephan Held (Bonn)


Most combinatorial optimization problems, e.g. the travelling salesman problem, graph coloring, or the Steiner tree problem, have wide practical applications. Thus, a large research community is working on advancing the computational tractability of these mostly NP-hard problems. This Hausdorff School will provide the unique opportunity for PhD students and PostDocs to gain in depth knowledge from leading researchers in this area.

 
Key Speakers: The following speakers will give a lecture series:

  •  Armin Biere (Freiburg)
  •  Robert Bixby (Houston)
  •  Petra Mutzel (Bonn)
  •  Eduardo Uchoa (Rio de Janeiro)

Please send applications using this form. Limited financial support for PhD students and postdocs may be available.

To be considered for participation, a CV and Letter of Intent (1 page) are required, as well as the name and contact information of a potential reference. (At this time, do not request a letter of recommendation.) Only one document can be uploaded, so please combine all documentation into one PDF.

Please note: Everyone interested in participating - disregarding whether there is need for financial support or not - has to register so that the participation may be administered.

Application has been closed at the end of July, 2022. Late applications may be considered, please contact stefan.hartmann(at)hcm.uni-bonn.de in theses cases.
In case of questions, please contact the organizers at computational(at)hcm.uni-bonn.de.
