organized jointly by the teams Combinatorial Optimization (OC) and Operational Research for Production Systems (ROSP) of the Laboratoire G-SCOP.
Topic: We would like to give an idea how discrete mathematics can be of use for solving real life problems, showing the necessity of mathematical tools and theorems for some of the most practical goals as well.
