Rabih Sallhab, a PhD student directed by Jérôme Le Ny and Roland Malhamé received the CDC Best Paper Award at the 55th Conference on Decision and Control, Las Vegas, USA, for the paper entitled "A Dynamic Collective Choice Model With An Advertiser", by R. Salhab, R.P. Malhamé and J. Le Ny.
On Monday, November 28, GERAD was visited by some 60 students from Père Marquette secondary school (Rosemont). It was an opportunity for them to discover and demystify the daily lives of researchers and the problems they are working on. They attended activities on modeling, the use of mathematics as a generic methodology applicable to a wide variety of problems and applications, such as environmental modeling or management. The role of the computer in research has not been forgotten. Thanks to Eglantine Camby, Laurie Cloutier, Annie Levasseur, Edoh Logo and Catherine Poissant for animating these sessions.
GERAD is now a member of the Réseau Québec maritime.
The RQM aims to mobilize researchers from all sectors, but also to develop collaborations between partners from universities, colleges, industry, government and community to create synergy between the different sectors related to maritime.
