CONFERENCE “ALGORITHMS, OPTIMIZATION AND LEARNING IN DYNAMICS ENVIRONMENTS”

Time:

Venue/Location: Institute of Mathematics, Vietnam Academy of Science and Technology and Vietnam Institute for Advanced Study in Mathematics.

Organisers: Hồ Tú Bảo (VIASM), Phan Thị Hà Dương (VAST), Nguyễn Kim Thắng (Paris-Saclay)

Context: Nowadays dynamic environments are deeply rooted in daily life, from online markets to communication/social networks. The environments are constantly evolving, requiring continued adaptation and development. Optimization, algorithms and learning play major roles in the adaptive systems with the purpose of designing solutions which are robust to dynamical changes. Besides, the spectacular success of machine learning in a wide range of applications opens many exciting directions, in particular exploring the methods in optimization and algorithms (which lies in the heart of the achievements). Developing efficient online algorithms, studying the interaction and bridging connections between optimization, algorithms and learning in dynamic settings are important research directions.

Objective: The workshop aims to bring researchers to introduce/present prominent directions in dynamic settings. The workshop also provides a forum for exchanging ideas and establish new collaborations, strengthen networkings between foreign and Vietnamese researchers.

Speakers and Participants: We plan to invite 20 foreign speakers as well as Vietnamese ones. The program consists of 20 talks. The number of participants is about 40, including PhD students.

Related Event. The conference will be preceded by the spring school Optimization and Algorithms in Dynamics Environments in the Institute of Mathematics, Vietnam Academy of Science from 18 Feb 2019 to 1 Mar 2019. The spring school can be considered as a boot camp which is intended to acquaint participants (especially PhD students and researchers in different domains) with the key themes of the conference.
