Section: Overall Objectives
INOCS is a new cross-border “France-Belgium” project team in the Applied Mathematics Computation and Simulation Inria domain. The main goal of this team is the study of optimization problems involving complex structures. In short this project team is called INOCS for INtegrated Optimization with Complex Structures. The scientific objectives of INOCS are related to modeling and methodological concerns. The INOCS team will focus on:
Even if CS problems are in general NP-hard due to their complex nature, exact solution methods or matheuristics (heuristics based on exact optimization methods) will be developed by INOCS. The scientific contribution of INOCS will result in a toolbox of models and methods to solve challenging real life problems.
