Alan Erera Invited to Lecture at Spring School in Montreal
Alan Erera, associate professor in the H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering, was invited to lecture on the topic of "Stochastic and Robust Optimization in Logistics" at the Spring School on Combinatorial Optimization in Logistics held at the University of Montreal from May 17 - 20, 2010.
Recognized by the organizers as a top researcher in his field, Erera conducts research primarily on transportation and logistics systems planning and control, with a focus both on innovative modeling and solution methodologies, and on challenging application areas including dynamic and stochastic vehicle routing and scheduling, robust asset management, logistics service network design, integrating security and efficiency in logistics systems, and highway traffic network analysis.
The Spring School on Combinatorial Optimization in Logistics draws students and researchers interested in the area of Combinatorial Optimization, in particular the latest advances in mixed-integer programming and its applications to various classes of problems arising in logistics, including network design, vehicle routing, routing/scheduling, routing/inventory, and location/routing, among others.
