IBOSS-ECMath Workshop "Optimization Methods in Health Care"

October 18-19, 2018, Zuse Institute Berlin (ZIB)

The workshop aims to connect people working in the intersecting field of operations research and process planning in health care. We will introduce and discuss computational optimization methods that improve the efficiency of current health care planning systems and how we can contribute to make them routine applications in daily operations.
