Third Nucleo-MPII Workshop: “International Collaboration Workshop in Algorithms”

Date: January 8-13, 2017.

The third Nucleo-MPII workshop will bring together researchers mainly from Chile and Germany in the design of approximation algorithms for combinatorial problems.  During the workshop we will also hold the first anual meeting of the Universidad de Chile / MPII joint collaboration grant PII20150140 “Fast Approximation Algorithms for Massive Data Sets”, which will strenghten the international connections of Nucleus.

The activities will be held at the Nucleus Offices located at the Departamento de Ingeniería industrial, Universidad de Chile.  Detailed information for participants is available in this document.
