4th SDP days

21-3-2013 - 22-3-2013

This a two-days meeting (at CWI Amsterdam) for those who are interested in semidefinite programming and its application to combinatorial optimization, complexity theory, mathematical physics, geometry, and graph theory.

There will be nine lectures by Per Austrin (KTH, Stockholm),  Christine Bachoc (University of Bordeaux), Francois Glineur (Louvain-la-Neuve),  Joao Gouveia (Coimbra), Konstantin Makarychev (Microsoft), Markus Schweighofer
(Konstanz), Renata Sotirov (Tilburg),  Juan Vera (Tilburg), and Stephanie Wehner (NUS, Singapore). Additionally there will be several lectures by young researchers.

Participation is free. If you like to participate, please send an email to Frank Vallentin before March 8, 2013 so that we can plan the coffee and lunch breaks.

ERC Starting grant for Daniel Dadush

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.
