Spend a week by the beach learning about the latest optimisation technologies. How can you help a business reduce its costs? Or reduce their carbon footprint? Or do both? The school is sponsored by the Optimisation Research Group of NICTA http://org.nicta.com.au/

The school will focus on solving large scale combinatorial optimisation problems in practice. The school is intended for undergraduate students (3rd year or later), masters or early stage PhD students. Every undergraduate participant will be assigned an individual mentor.

Topics covered include: introduction to constraint programming, modelling, integer programming, column generation, uncertainty, vehicle routing, scheduling, supply networks and research skills. Lecturers include Simon Dunstall, Phil Kilby, Olivia Smith, Peter Stuckey, Guido Tack and Toby Walsh.


The registration page is open now and applicants will be considered in order of application so please apply as soon as possible. Undergraduates are free. Yes, a week by the beach paid for with fun and games! Postgraduates need pay just $250 which covers 5 nights accommodation, all food and drink, and the coach transfer from Sydney.
