The event of POEMA Industrial Workshop will expose the ESRs to approaches and problems from the private sector and allow them to develop further interactions with practical applications. The workshop will also include presentations by the industrial partners of their activities, and of application challenges they encounter. The industrial training will be oriented towards solving practical problems using polynomial optimization tools and the ESRs can acquire hands-on experience with the software.

The event will be organized from Monday 13 December 2021 (afternoon) to Friday 17 December 2021 (noon).


The POEMA Industrial Workshop will be organized by

The scientific coordinator of POEMA project is  Bernard Mourrain - Inria Université Côte d'Azur

The admin contacts of the workshop is Linh Nguyen - Inria Université Côte d'Azur (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.)
