Social Program

As part of the social program we are planning a visit to the port of Hamburg which is one of the largest of its kind in Europe (date: Wednesday, June 11 at 3:30 pm). Regarding container terminals the port is famous for one of the most modern terminals (CTA, Container Terminal Altenwerder). Due to strict security measures it is necessary to collect the passport /ID card numbers of all attendees to the HHLA premises and send them to HHLA at least two weeks in advance of the trip. If you intend to take part in our excursion, we kindly ask you to send us your passport no. or personal ID no.
until May 30, 2014 the latest.
You can do this by e-mail to <IWI@uni-hamburg.de> or by fax to ++49-40-42838-5535.

Special Session "Meet the Editors"

Especially for younger researchers it seems more than ever important to search for the right outlets for publications.
To which extent are impact factors really important and what seem to be good practices in preparing a paper so that it will be considered in a fair and appropriate way. Editors / senior editors of leading journals will provide initial statements, discuss the issues and will take questions from the floor.

PhD-Course: Stochastic Programming and Progressive Hedging

Following the Matheuristics workshop there will be a PhD-Course held by Prof. David L. Woodruff, PhD from the University of California at Davis, Davis, California, USA
Main scopes of this course are Optimization Under Uncertainty, Stochastic Programming: abstract formulations, Examples from logistics and operations, Risk Measures, Implementation Issues
