Section: Overall Objectives
Schedule of tasks
The research program development of INOCS is to move alternatively :
from problems towards new approaches in optimization: Models and solution algorithms will be developed to fit the structure and properties of the problem. From them, new generic approaches will be used to optimize problems with similar properties.
from innovative approaches towards problems: The relevance of the proposed approaches will be assessed by designing new models and/or solution methods for various classes of problems. These models and methods will be based on the extension and integration of specific, well studied, models and methods.
Even if these two axes are developed sequentially in a first phase, their interactions will lead us to explore them jointly in the mid-term.
