IVADO PRF3 Workshop 2024: Towards Resilient and Sustainable Supply Chains Through Machine Learning and Optimization


Apr 22, 2024   08:30 AM — 06:00 PM

Registrations are now closed.

Recent developments in machine learning and optimization have the potential to enable supply chain decision-makers and practitioners to leverage data and deal with uncertainty in an effective and adaptive fashion. This scientific workshop presents various industrial realizations demonstrating how modern machine learning and optimization methods can effectively be applied in practice. Through academic-style talks from speakers in both academia and industry, they will present various use cases in supply chains and scientific approaches, as well as challenges and opportunities in the applications of learning and optimization methods. There will also be dedicated time for informal discussions among participants.

The conference provides coffee, lunch and post-event cocktail reception with finger foods.
