EURO PhD School on Data Driven Decision Making and Optimization. July 10th-19th, 2020. Seville, Spain
This EURO PhD School (EPS) will focus on giving participants advanced training on Data Driven Decision Making. There will be a methodological as well as an applied component to this EPS. Methodological training on the role of Mathematical Optimization in Data Science will be given in the format of lectures and computer workshops. The lectures will highlight the mathematical and statistical modeling and numerical optimization behind data analysis and data visualization tools. The computer workshops will make this knowledge actionable. Applications of the acquired knowledge to the modeling of specific industrial problems will be presented by professionals from industry and worked out by the PhD students. Mathematical and statistical models and numerical solution approaches will be developed and communicated, following a collaborative approach, in which the PhD students will work in small groups under the guidance of the instructors.
