Dip into Optimization

The Dip into Optimization Seminar will meet on a monthly basis, on Thursdays 1-2pm in PDL C-38. It is a graduate student only seminar aimed at exposing students to the different types of optimization being done by their peers. It will also give students the opportunity to present their research or papers they are reading to a general optimization audience and get feedback on their talks. Students from other departments are welcome to attend. This seminar is suitable for graduate students of all levels.
