Autumn School on Constrained Optimization and Machine Learning

October 9 / 8:00 - October 11 / 16:00

The Research Training Group on Algorithmic Optimization proudly announces its eighth Autumn School from October 9 – 11, 2024.

This year’s focus will be on Constrained Optimization and Machine Learning

In today’s rapidly evolving technological landscape, the intersection of constrained optimization and machine learning is gaining immense significance. As we tackle intricate real-world challenges, the synergy between these two domains gets more and more important. While unconstrained optimization methods have predominantly been employed in machine learning so far, constraints are becoming prevalent in a wide array of applications. This school offers a unique opportunity to deepen comprehension and delve into the latest advancements at the interface of the two fields. Thus, participants will acquire invaluable skills to confront the challenges of tomorrow.
