The coordination of the event is under the supervision
of both EUME/GT2L for the conference and EUME/GT ROQ for the school which organized together an international joint event composed of three items:
• EUME conference sessions focusing on the last advances on metaheuristic;
For more than 2 decades, the annual European Congress on Metaheuristics (EU/Meeting) has been held in a European city. The objective is to bring together specialists in the field of optimization, and allow them to present their latest advances in terms of metaheuristic type resolution methods as well as to give tutorials on specific subjects.
For its 21st edition, EU/MEeting will take place within the University of Technology of Troyes. The theme will focus on recent advances in metaheuristic including methods based on new paradigms brought by quantum computing
The EUME conference includes two plenary talks of both Eric Taillard and Jin Kao Hao.
• tutorials on metaheuristics and quantum computing;
• a school (including practices) on quantum optimization;
The school has a specific focus on quantum "metaheuristics" including but not limited to QAOA and adiabatic optimization.
The school is dedicated to researchers and PhD students who are interested in discovering the quantum theory with application to very concrete problems including for example graph coloring, SAT and/or TSP.
• The school enclosed in introduction to configure programming environments, and make in short time the first quantum program. Jean-Michel Torres (IBM) will be in charge of the introduction the IBM Qiskit solution, Rober Wang and Anne-Lise Guilmin charge are in charge of the introducion on the QLM Solution and Wesley Coelho in charge of the introduction of the PASQAL solution. • The school enclosed in introduction to the QML environement; • The examples are linked to classical well-know operational problems.
The organizers of this event will issue a certificate of participation for the doctoral schools
The event is organized by: • Marc Sevaux (UBS) • Caroline Prodhon (UTT) • Eric Bourreau (LIRMM) • Philippe Lacomme (LIMOS) • Sonia Vanier (LIX) • Frédéric Saubion (LERIA)
Participation is subjected to the payment of a participation fees of €180
The first 30 registered PhD students will have a promotional registration at 60€
All participants and theoritical and practical session organizers must pay the fees. The only exceptions are for the Invited Speakers ( Prof. Dr. Anita Schöbel, Ch. Couteau, Ch. Artigues, Olivier Ezratty, Simon Perdrix, Jin-Kao Hao, Eric Taillard).
The 180€ are required to take in charge the coffee break, the lunches and the extra charges.
