Discrete Optimization Talks (DOTs)

DOTs are virtual discrete optimization talks, organized by Aleksandr M. Kazachkov and Elias B. Khalil. To receive updates (and the Zoom link) for upcoming DOTs, please join our mailing list. If you would like to give a DOT, please fill out this form or email us.

Topics of interest include theoretical, computational, and applied aspects of integer and combinatorial optimization.

The format is a weekly session with two 30-minute talks. Currently, the seminars are scheduled on TBD when we restart in September 2020. A special feature of DOTs will be a social component. After a usual talk, you might grab a tea/coffee and chat with other attendees. Why not here too? Join us for some informal discussion after each DOT and throughout the week on our Discord channel.

Videos of past DOTs are posted under Past Talks and can also be found on our Youtube Channel.

Join the mailing list to receive information about our upcoming seminars and how to virtually participate. Joining this list is necessary to receive the password for each DOT (usually sent on Monday mornings). You may also wish to subscribe to our Google calendar (also available in ics format).

Upcoming Talks

We are on our summer break, but fear not, DOTs will return. We would appreciate your feedback on the format in which DOTs should continue. To this end, please fill out this (relatively short) Google form.
