Metaheuristics and its applications
Discrete, continuous and agent based simulation, stochastic processes and probabilistic models.
Applications of operational research to problem solving in the areas of sustainability, health care, logistics, agroindustry, engineering, telecommunications, finance and production, Big Data, among others.
The official languages of the school are English, Spanish, and Portuguese. Participants can present in any of these languages (with the slides in English). Short curses and lectures will be either in English or in Spanish (in the latter case with English slides).
