FRICO 2014 will be hosted by the Chair for Mathematical Optimization in Magdeburg.
FRICO 2013 will take place August 21-24, 2013 at the Chair of Operations Research, RWTH Aachen University, Germany.
The workshop aims to bring together young researchers and to encourage the exchange of new ideas. The focus of the workshop is to present their own results as well as work in progress from various areas of combinatorial optimization.
FRICO is intended to be a workshop in the original meaning of the word. In particular, we encourage the submission and presentation of on-going and future research (even work containing gaps and unsolved problems). Besides plenty of time between sessions, there will be a social program that allows participants to exchange ideas and have fruitful discussions.
In the past, there were presentation concerning the following topics:
- Discrete Mathematics und Combinatorics
- Design and Analysis of Algorithms
- Linear, Semidefinite and Mixed Integer Nonlinear Programming
- Mathematical Programming Software
- Applications of Combinatorial Optimization
- Approximation Algorithms
To enable students and young researchers without major financial backing to participate at FRICO, participation for young researchers is free of charge. Participants will only have to cover their travel and accommodation expenses.
As mentioned above FRICO aims mostly at young researchers (students, PhD students and postdocs).
Similar to last years FRICO, we plan to have an industry day where practioners from the industry will highlight the application of combinatorial optimization in practice.
FRICO 2013 is the 16th workshop in a sequence of successful meetings, see the location of previous FRICOS in the history.
