EURANDOM workshop on “Scheduling under Uncertainty”

by , under Events

We're proud to announce the upcoming workshop on "Scheduling under Uncertainty".  The workshop will feature an exciting program with several top speakers and take place at EURANDOM, Eindhoven University of Technology, June 1-5, followed back-to-back by the 12th Workshop on Models and Algorithms for Planning and Scheduling Problems (MAPSP 2015), which will be held in La Roche-en-Ardenne during the week of June 8-12.

Thematic scope:

The workshop's goal is to bring together and promote the dialogue and collaboration between researchers in two different communities: the stochastic scheduling and networking community, and the worst-case approximation scheduling community.  Both these communities consider mathematical and algorithmic problems motivated by resource allocation, scheduling shared resources and load balancing, routing and speed scaling in large-scale systems.  However, the specific problems studied and the techniques used to address them are quite different.  The workshop will bring together experts in both these areas, and especially researchers who span both these communities, and foster links by exploring problem areas of mutual interest and encouraging lively interaction and discussions.
In addition to the invited speakers, we also expect a broad attendance of local Dutch researchers and students from Europe.

5-Minute presentations:

We plan to organize a special session with 5-minute presentations.  If you're interested to give such a 5-minute presentation, then please send an email to Nikhil Bansal at n.bansal@tue.nl with a title and brief abstract by April 15.
