Webinar – Learn How the FCC Uses Mathematical Optimization

May 19th - 20th, 2020

Please join us for an upcoming webinar

Join us for this upcoming webinar to discover how the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) uses mathematical optimization to schedule the reassignment of channels for broadcast television stations in the United States and Canada in order to free up spectrum for mobile use and 5G.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • How the FCC modeled their scheduling problem and attained buy-in for their approach
  • Some of the unique challenges faced when using mathematical optimization to determine public policy

The presenters of this webinar will be Dr. Karla Hoffman of George Mason University, who has been an FCC consultant for 20 years, and Brian Smith of NCI Information Systems, Head of the Optimization Team at the FCC.

Tuesday, May 19th at 8:00 am PDT (GMT -7)

Wednesday, May 20th at 3:00 pm CET (GMT +2)
