MASCOT 2017 Meeting

    The MASCOT NUM 2017 meeting is organized from March 22nd to March 24th, 2017, by S. Da Veiga (Safran), in Paris.
    It will be located in the centre of Paris, at Institut Henri Poincaré (IHP) (Amphithéatre Hermite) on March 22nd and March 24th and at AgroParisTech (site de la rue Claude Bernard) on March 23rd.

    The conference will be structured around three major themes of the GDR:

    • Statistical learning
    • Optimization
    • Real-life and large scale applications of these techniques

    The best student presentation award has been conferred to Clément Bouttier (Univ. Toulouse) and Rémi Stroh (LNE/CentraleSupélec). They have won a prize of 1000€. LOL



    /* Registration is free but is required. As the number of places is limited, participation to the three days of the conference is also required.

    Registration deadline: March, 6th. */

    Registration is closed

    /* ~~FORM~~ */
