The 2018 French Days on Optimization and Decision Science
Grenoble is hosting the 2018 edition of the French Days on Optimization and Decision Science (Journées SMAI-MODE 2018), the biennial meeting of the MODE special interest group of the French Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SMAI). The event will take place from March 28 to March 30, 2018, and aims at bringing together students, researchers and practitioners in the broad areas of optimization, game theory, control, and decision science in general. It will be an opportunity for researchers to present their recent advances in the field and to initiate new and fruitful collaborations, as was the case with the previous editions.
The 2018 SMAI-MODE meeting will be held in the Escandille conference center in Autrans, in the heart of the Vercors Massif (about one hour from Grenoble). Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
- Optimization, nonlinear analysis
- Game theory
- Optimal control and optimal transport
- Stochastic optimization and learning
- Operations research
- Mathematical modelization in finance, economics and social sciences
SMAI-MODE 2018 is co-organized by the European Network for Game Theory (COST Action CA16228). Just before the MODE meeting, the French research group on optimization (GdR MOA) is organizing a short course on “Optimization and learning: applications to image processing”. The course will take place on March 26-27, and will be given by Julien Mairal.
The whole team is participating in the organization of this event and J. Malick is general chair.
