Joint ACP, CNRS, GDR IA and RO International Autumn School on Constraint Programming, Combinatorial Optimization and Machine Learning

The international autumn school on Constraint Programming, Combinatorial Optimization and Machine Learning is a joint autumn school of the Association for Constraint Programming (ACP) and 4 working groups of the CNRS research networks on Artificial Intelligence (GDR IA) and Operations Research (GDR RO). These working groups are CAVIAR (Constraints and Learning), RAP (Representation and Algorithms in Practice), ROCT (Operations Research and Constraints), GT2L (Transportation and Logistics). The Artificial and Natural Intelligence Toulouse Institute (ANITI) is also co-organizer. The purpose of the school is, first, to cover the basics of Constraint programming, Discrete Optimization and Machine learning and, second, to present advanced combinations of at least two approaches to attack complex problems. Applications in scheduling and vehicle routing will be addressed. Training sessions and software tutorials will be organized.

The school will take place at LAAS-CNRS, 7 avenue du Colonel Roche 31031 Toulouse France from 24 to 27 November 2020.

There will be two possible participation modes:

  • online participation
  • onsite participation (limited number of persons subject to future unknown restrictions)

Registration if free in both cases. Please register by following instructions on the school web site.
