Introduction

  • POEMA first learning week in Konstanz: March 23-27, 2020 (Monday to Friday)
  • POEMA 2nd workshop in Konstanz: March 30 - April 3, 2020 (Monday to Friday)

The first learning week includes short introductory courses to broaden the scientific scope of the ESRs, and to equip them with additional competencies, specific to the domain of polynomial optimization. It will allow the ESRs to acquire a common knowledge, to be shared by the network community. These courses will address different aspects of effective algebra, convex geometry, and polynomial optimization and will be provided by POEMA members or other high-profile speakers.

The 2nd workshop in Konstanz is dedicated to the foundations of polynomial optimization. There will be talks in a broad range of topics by established expert researchers. In addition, the doctoral students in the POEMA network will have the opportunity to present and discuss their first research results.

Other students outside POEMA network who are interested in the topic are welcome to participate.


Venue

The 1st Learning week and 2nd workshop will be organized at:

Fachbereich Mathematik und Statistik
Universität Konstanz
78457 Konstanz
