Administrative Responsabilities

Each member of the team is quite involved in teaching in the thematic specialties of the project, including in the research track of the Masters in applied mathematics or computer science and an Operations Research Track in the computer science department of the Engineering school ENSEIRB-MATMECA. Moreover, we are largely implied in the organization of the curriculum:

  • Arnaud Pêcher was the head of IUT Computer Science's special year, since 2010.

  • Andrew Miller was the head of Applied Mathematics Department, since 2010.

  • Francois Vanderbeck has succeeded to Andrew Miller as the head of the Master Speciality in Operations Research.
