Spring School on Combinatorial Optimization in Logistics

Université de Montréal, May 17 — 20, 2010

The Spring School on Combinatorial Optimization in Logistics is aimed at students and researchers interested in the area of Combinatorial Optimization, in particular the latest advances in Mixed-Integer Programming, and its applications to various classes of problems arising in logistics, including network design, vehicle routing, routing/scheduling, routing/inventory, location/routing, among others.

This activity will follow two other scientific events taking place in Montréal: Optimization Days 2010, from May 10 to 12, and the Spring School on Supply Chain and Transportation Network Design, from May 12 to 14.

Organizers : Louis-Martin Rousseau and Bernard Gendron
