VRP2013: European Spring School on Vehicle Routing

VRP2013: European Spring School on Vehicle Routing is a one-week, full-immersion institute gathering Ph.D. students and young researchers working on the field of vehicle routing.

The academic program is made up of 4 academic modules and 2 workshops. In addition to the academic program, the spring school includes an active social program conceived to help participants developing personal links that may foster future academic collaborations.

The spring school will be hosted by the Institute of Applied Mathematics (IMA) of Université Catholique de l’Ouest in Angers (France) from May 20 to May 24, 2013. The spring school is open to all Ph.D. students completing a dissertation on vehicle routing and young researchers working on the field. Participants are invited to present their research in poster sessions during the coffee breaks. Presenting a poster is not mandatory.

Participants should apply for a place at the spring school before January 30, 2013. The number of participants is limited. Places will be assigned according to a FIFO discipline giving priority to Ph.D. students and participants presenting a poster. Participants from outside Europe are welcome to apply.
