Workshop on

(Bilevel) optimization, data analysis and forecasting
     3 - 4 July 2017, University of Southampton

Optimization has proven to be a driving force behind the fast development of efficient tools for data analysis. Recently, bilevel optimization has also emerged as a useful tool to model a wide range of problems in this area. Also considering the strong links between forecasting and data science, the aim of the workshop on (Bilevel) Optimization, Data Analysis and Forecasting is to bring together a number of leading academic and industrial experts in these three areas, in order to discuss current advances, interfaces between the topics, and new modeling, theoretical and computational challenges.


Researchers interested in optimization, data analysis, forecasting and the interactions between these areas; PhD and MSc students in Econometrics, Statistics, Computer Science and Mathematics with academic or professional interests in any of the aforementioned topics.

Participation to the workshop is free of charge, but the number of places is limited to 50 and will be filled on first come, first served basis. Registration is now open via the event’s website at ttp://www.southampton.ac.uk/~abz1e14/bodaf/<http://www.southampton.ac.uk/~abz1e14/bodaf/>
