Recent Advances in Multi-Objective Optimization

The workshop “Recent Advances in Multi-Objective Optimization” focuses on latest advances in exact methods in multi-objective (mixed) integer optimization. Prof. Dr. Karl-Heinz Küfer, Head of Department, speaks about "Industrial Applications of Multicriteria Decision Support" and he is a part of the Organizing Committee.


In addition, the conference dinner will be held at our institute and we will present research results as well as projects from the field of "optimization" in various exhibits.
