To be held at University of Montréal, Canada, on May 26-29, 2020, the 2020 School on Column Generation is the fourth of its kind (after Paris, France, in 2018 and 2014, Darmstadt, Germany, in 2010 and Montréal, Canada, in 2006) and aims at teaching the state-of-the-art in column generation and branch-and-price: Basic theory (decompositions, reformulations, convexification, discretization, etc.), vehicle routing and crew scheduling applications, shortest path subproblems, column generation heuristics, master problem issues (stabilization, aggregation), branching and cutting. The school will also comprise an introductory talk on machine learning and recent developments combining machine learning and column generation.
This school targets mainly PhD students but also practitioners and all interested researchers.
