Summer school

Organised by Jožef Stefan Institute, Cologne University of Applied Sciences, and University of Lille

Ljubljana, 27 - 31 August 2018


The SYNERGY Summer School on Efficient Multi-Objective Optimisation will be devoted to efficient multi-objective optimisation through parallelisation and surrogate modelling. In addition to lectures on the state of the art in this area, the summer school will offer all attendees access to Grid'5000, a large-scale infrastructure for research in grid computing. The targeted audience are students, researchers and industrial participants interested in efficient multi-objective optimisation.

SYNERGY Summer school represents a unique chance to provide a coherent educational package that spans from large scale parallelisation  to  surrogate modelling,  and  builds  a  attendee  profile with  knowledge  in  the  form  of smart  multi-objective  optimisation  and  its  applications.
