Building upon the achievements of the Marie-Curie ITN Mixed-Integer Non-Linear Optimization (MINO) (2012 – 2016), the goal of the Mixed-Integer Non-Linear Optimisation Applications (MINOA) proposal is to train the next generation of highly qualified researchers and managers in applied mathematics, operations research and computer science that are able to face
the modern imperative challenges of European and international relevance in areas such as energy, logistics, engineering, natural sciences, and data analytics.
We announce that for two of our projects, the respective ESR positions are open once again. In particular, for the adverts and how to apply, please visit EURAXESS:
Advert ESR01 (Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nuremberg, Germany)
Advert ESR05 (University of Bologna, Italy)
The application deadline for ESR01 is May 22nd, for ESR05, it is May 09th.
At April 09th, our consortium, our ESRs, the project manager and our project officer met to discuss the current progress of the project. In particular, every site and the ESRs introcced themselves and the coordinator and the officer held presentations. We are very happy for the positive criticism :-).
One of our partners, Martin Schmidt from Trier University, just published a book (jointly with Lars Schewe from FAU) on the optimization of utility networks (in German) - congratulations!
The book can be found online.
From June 25th to June 28th 2019, we hold our first MINOA PhD school. This year's topic is "Mixed-Integer Nonlinear Optimization meets Data Science" and there will be various lectures about Deep Learning, Clustering in >Big Data, Machine Learning for Combinatorial Optimization and Support Vector Machines. Furthermore, we will have industrial sessions from Pierre Bonami (IBM) and Joachiqum Gromicho (ORTEC). The school will take place on Ischia, Italy.
The school is open for everyone. For further information and registration. please visit the information site.
Our coordinator Frauke Liers gave an interview about gender equality in MINOA (in German). The interview can be found in the "Marie Kurier", the newsletter of the MSCActions.
The predecessor of the MINOA project was MINO. And one of the MINO fellows, Jonas Schweiger, received the Dissertation Award 2018 from the German Operations Research Society GOR for dissertation "Exploiting structure in non-convex quadratic optimization and gas network planning under uncertainty"! Congratulations!
The press release for our recruitment is out. You can find it under the following link: idw-online.de/en/news693328.
We call for applications for our 12 ESR projects. The deadline has been extended to the 18th of May 2018. The official call can be found on Euraxess.
For details about the recruitment, please go to "Recruitment".
As a MINOA action, Prof. Dr. Monique Laurent from CWI (National Research Institute for Mathematics and Computer Science, Netherlands) organizes a workshop on applications of semidefinite optimization on the 5th of April. You can find more information under this link. The workshop will take place at the CWI in Amsterdam.
On the 27th and the 28th of February, our Kickoff took place in Nuremberg.
