As per popular request, the organizing committee has decided to extend the EECSS'17 congress to three days (now June 4 - 6, 2017). The new high-level schedule is as follows:
June 4th Day 1: Registration
June 5th Day 2: Main Track Conference Sessions and Workshop(s)
June 6th Day 3: Main Track Conference Sessions
Registration for the workshop will be 121 EURs (VAT included). Workshop is included in the registration conference fee. Workshop attendees will receive a certificate of participation. For registration, please visit the respective conferences' registration page.
Here are the following information about the speaker and the workshop:
Dr. Brigitte Jaumard
University of Brighton, UK
Brigitte Jaumard holds a Concordia University Research Chair, Tier 1, on the Optimization of Communication Networks in the Computer Science and Software Engineering (CSE) Department at Concordia University. Her research focuses on mathematical modeling and algorithm design for large-scale optimization problems arising in communication networks, transportation and logistics networks and artificial intelligence. Recent studies include the design of efficient algorithms for network design, dimensioning and provisioning, scheduling algorithms in optical grids or clouds, in broadband wireless networks and in passive optical networks. In Artificial Intelligence, contributions include the development of efficient optimization algorithms for probabilistic logic (reasoning under uncertainty) and for automated mechanical design in social networks (design of trust estimator tools). In transportation, her recent contributions include new algorithms for freight train scheduling and locomotive assignment subject to energy minimization, as well as machine learning frameworks for efficient cross-docking. B. Jaumard has published over 300 papers in international journals in Operations Research and in Telecommunications.
Important information for workshop registrants: All workshop attendees will receive a certificate of participation. The registration deadline for the workshop is on May 1, 2017. Registration fees will be refunded only if the workshop is cancelled due to insufficient amount of registrants (less than 5).
