INFORMS ALIO International Conference

June 9, 2019 - June 12, 2019

Join us in Cancun, Mexico

Gurobi Optimization will be presenting and exhibiting at the 2019 INFORMS ALIO International Conference. This conference will be held on June 9th – June 12th at the JW Marriott & Marriott Cancun Resort. At INFORMS–ALIO 2019, attendees will exchange ideas on classic topics covered by OR/MS and Analytics such as services, logistics and transportation, and supply chain management, as well as the new challenges brought by the increasing availability of data and its potential application to nontraditional areas such as environment, healthcare systems, sports, and disaster management. Gurobi Optimization will have an exhibit booth and two presentations that we encourage you to attend.

Presented Session #1
Session: Why Optimization?
Presented by:  Dr. Cipriano Santos, Sr. Technical Content Manager, Gurobi Optimization
Location:  M-Conzumel - Session TC12 - New Trends in Optimization - 1
Time:  Tuesday, June 11th, 4:30pm - 6:00pm
In this session, we discuss Industry 4.0 and the importance of mathematical optimization to maximize operational efficiency and to manage complexity through automation of number crunching for decision making. We discuss evolution and applicability of mathematical optimization and its impact on solving challenging, high impact, and high value problems. We provide an example of combining mathematical optimization and machine learning.
Presented Session #2
Session: Advanced Heuristics with Gurobi
Presented by: Dr. Daniel Espinoza, Sr. Developer, Gurobi Optimization
Session: M-Conzumel - Session TC12 - New Trends in Optimization - 2
Time:  Tuesday, June 11th, 4:30pm - 6:00pm
This talk covers one capability of MIP that is often overlooked: its ability to find and subsequently improve good quality solutions to exceedingly difficult problems. In particular, we will focus on techniques for using the Gurobi MIP solver as a heuristic, and a discussion on what makes a model more amenable to optimization, and common techniques to use MIP in local-improvement-type of heuristics.
Exhibit Booth
Location: Exhibit Hall
Times: Sunday, June 9th, 9:00am - 4:00pm
Monday, June 10th, 9:00am to 4:00pm
Tuesday, June 11th, 10:00am to 3:30pm
Stop by and learn more about the Gurobi Optimizer and meet some of the team.
