Dutch Day on Optimization

The main purpose of the event is to bring together the Dutch Optimization community across the areas of operations research, computer science and discrete mathematics. The event will highlight the research of both national and international speakers. Participants from outside the Netherlands are of course also welcome!

The Dutch Day on Optimization is the second in-person event associated with the on-line Dutch Seminar on Optimization (see website). This is the second incarnation of the in-person event: in 2022 it was at CWI in Amsterdam. This year we are delighted to host it at Maastricht University.

The event takes place in Room F0.019 of the building Tapijnkazerne 11, 6211 ME Maastricht. This is a newly renovated building of the School of Business and Economics. It is approximately a 25-30 minute walk from the train station in Maastricht – here is a suggested walking route - or a 5-10 minute cycle.

The room F0.019 is on the ground floor of the building. However, the main entrance to the building is below ground level (i.e. at level minus one), via the sunken ampitheatre in front of the building. After you enter the below-level glass doors that face the main road, you will need to go one floor up.
