Summer School on Operational Research and Applications

The Summer School on Operational Research and Applications will take place on May 22 – 26, 2016 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. The main topics of the school are related to Data Mining, Data Analytics, Big Data Algorithms.

The school is hosted by the National Research University Higher School of Economics in Nizhny Novgorod (Room 209, 136 Rodionova Str). The school follows the tradition of previous summer schools on operational research and applications 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015:

Summer school 2011

Summer school 2012
Summer school 2013
Summer school 2014
Summer school 2015

The school is organized for last-year bachelor, master and PhD students. To attend the school as a participant you must register before April 30, 2016.

Students are also encouraged to present the recent results of their research related to the topics of the summer school. Selected school papers will be published in a conference NET 2016 proceeding (Springer Proceedings in Mathematics and Statistics , indexed in Scopus).
