- Conference Announcement: EUCCO 2023
The sixth edition of the European Conference on Computational Optimization (EUCCO) will be held in Heidelberg from 2023-09-25 until 2023-09-27 with the scoop group acting as local organizer. More information can be found on the conference’s event page.IWR Board of DirectorsShort course: Introduction to Optimization
** Attention! Due to health reasons, we will unfortunately have to postpone this short course to another time. We will post more information here as soon as possible. We apologize for the inconvenience.***
Complementing the standard teaching of the 2022 winter semester, the scoop group is offering a compact course Introduction to Optimization as part of the Heidelberg Graduate School for Mathematical and Computational Methods in the Sciences’ ( HGS MathComp) curriculum.Seminar Announcement: Selected Topics in Optimization
In the summer semester of 2022, the SCOOP group at IWR, Heidelberg University is organizing a seminar on selected topics in optimization. The seminar is intended for both undergraduate (bachelor) and graduate (master) students in mathematics, applied computer sciences and scientific computing and will concern a wide range of topics in optimization that can be tailored to the individual participants. The seminar is suitable for participants with little prior knowledge in optimization but also an obvious extension for advanced topics that build on the classes “Grundlagen der Optimierung”, “Nichtlineare Optimierung” or “Konvexe Optimierung”.
Feel free to contact us at email@example.com if you have questions on the seminar.New group member: Evelyn HerbergNew group member: Reyhaneh Majidi
