WONDER minicourse on Random Optimization Problems6-11-2012 - 9-11-2012
The course concerns well-known problems such as finding a minimal-weight
matching or a shortest traveling-salesman route, but under the assumption
that parameters of the problem such as edge weights are drawn
from a probability distribution. This ﬁeld is currently
rapidly developing. It lies in the intersection of probability
theory, statistical physics, combinatorial optimization and computer
The minicourse is primarily intended for Ph.D. students, but others
are of course welcome to join. Read more.Back to calendar

Call for PhD project proposals4-11-2019
NWO has issued a cluster-wide call for PhD project proposals. Researchers can apply if they are employed (i.e., hold a salaried position) at a Dutch university or a research institute recognised by NWO, and also have an appointment period for at least the duration of the application procedure and the entire duration of the research for which the grant is being applied for.
ERC Starting Grant for Jesper Nederlof4-11-2019
Jesper Nederlof (TU/e) has been awarded an ERC Starting Grant of almost 1.5 ME. Nederlof will design faster algorithms for hard computational problems in computer science. The grant provides the researcher with the opportunity to further elaborate his own ideas during a period of five years.

ERC Starting grant for Daniel Dadush26-9-2018
Daniel Dadush (CWI) has been awarded an ERC Starting Grant of 1.5 ME for his proposal ‘Towards a Quantitative Theory of Integer Programming’. With this grant, Dadush aims to revolutionize the understanding of integer programming (IP), the most popular method used today for finding optimal solutions to real-world optimization problems.
