Optimization Seminar

Event information


The Optimization Seminar is intended to offer the research groups at the University of Heidelberg that are working in optimization a platform to present their work, combine research interests and generally establish an interactive effort to research optimization topics at the IWR and the math faculty.


The seminar is organized by the research group Scientific Computing and Optimization (R. Herzog) and was started in October 2021.

Times and Format

The seminar will be structured as weekly presentations up to 45 min on Thursdays, 11:00h - 12:00h, starting May 19 and ending June 28 - not accounting for holidays and other events. While we hope that most of the slots will be filled by members of the organizing groups, we intend to offer remaining slots to external speakers. Each talk will either be given fully virtually or (preferably) live in person at Room 2.414 of the Mathematikon INF 205. Participants are invited to use this format to practice talks for upcoming conferences or PhD defenses. Additional audience is warmly welcomed.

Organizational information

On April 25, we will meet informally with all interested parties to discuss and assign presentation dates to the speakers. The talk schedule and the location will be announced and maintained in the corresponding google calendar.

Guest speaker

On June 23, Mr. Simon Buchwald (Uni Konstanz) will give presentation on A greedy algorithm for the reconstruction of operators inside ODE-systems.
