| COLUMN GENERATION 2016 will take place in Búzios, Brazil, in the Pérola Búzios Hotel located 180 km Northeast of Rio de Janeiro. The workshop will start on Sunday, May 22 in the late afternoon with registration and a welcome reception and will end before dinner on Wednesday, May 25. It is sponsored by the GERAD research center (through its FRQNT Stategic Cluster grant) and by the Pontifícia Universidade Católica do Rio de Janeiro.
Like the successful Column Generation 2008 (Aussois, France) and Column Generation 2012 (Bromont, Canada), Column Generation 2016 aims at bringing together researchers from operations research, mathematical programming, and computer science which are active in solving large-scale integer programs via column generation. The workshop reflects the state-of-the-art of theory, applications, and implementation. It is informal in character and meant as a place of active research and exchange. There will be a single track of about 30 presentations.
Participation in Column Generation 2016 is BY INVITATION ONLY.
