2011 Optimization Days

HEC Montréal, Canada, 2 — 4 May 2011


Optimization Days is an annual conference organized alternately by the Groupe d'Études et de Recherche en Analyse des Décisions (GERAD) and the Interuniversity Research Centre on Enterprise Networks, Logistics and Transportation (CIRRELT).

The conference aims to survey theories, numerical methods, and applications of optimization. It provides researchers from around the world the opportunity to exchange and to collaborate.

Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to:
  • Dynamic programming and optimal control
  • Game Theory
  • Heuristics and metaheuristics
  • Linear and integer programming
  • Multicriteria decision aid
  • Networks and graphs
  • Non-linear programming
  • Numerical methods
  • Simulation
  • Statistical methods and data mining
  • Stochastic and robust optimization
  • Applications in all areas, and particularly in:
    • Biology
    • Energy, environment and natural resources
    • Financial engineering and mathematical finance
    • Marketing
    • Operations management
    • Robotics
    • Scheduling
    • Telecommunications
    • Transportation

We especially encourage presentations on new methods of optimization and their applications. The conference languages will be French and English. In 2011, Optimization Days will be held at HEC Montréal, 3000 chemin de la Côte-Sainte-Catherine, Montreal, near the Campus of the Université de Montréal.

Plenary speakers:

  • Asuman Ozdaglar, MIT, U.S.A.
    Opinion Dynamics and Learning in Social Networks


  • Jan Modersitzki, University of Lübeck, Germany
    Optimal Image Registration - From Applications to Code
  • Jean-Philippe Vial, ORDECSYS and University of Geneva, Switzerland
    Robust Optimization in Energy and Environmental Problems

The preliminary program will be available on our Web site early April 2011.

Important Dates:

  • March 23, 2011 - Deadline for the summary submission
  • April 8, 2011 - Deadline for the registration fee discount
