Summer School on Operational Research and Applications

The Summer School on Operational Research and Applications will take place on May 12 – 16, 2015 in Nizhny Novgorod, Russia. The school is organized by the Laboratory of Algorithms and Technologies for Networks Analysis of the National Research University Higher School of Economics and is supported by RSF 14-41-00039. The main topics of the school are related to clustering and search techniques in large scale networks.

The school is hosted by the National Research University Higher School of Economics in Nizhny Novgorod. The school follows the tradition of previous summer schools on operational research and applications 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014:
Summer school 2011

Summer school 2012

Summer school 2013

Summer school 2014

The school is organized for last-year bachelor, master and PhD students. To attend the school as a participant you must send us filled registration form and CV in English before April 28, 2015 (mailto: iutkina@hse.ru). Students are also encouraged to present the recent results of their research related to the topics of the summer school.
