E-mail Print PDF

We are glad to invite EU/ME members to join us in Angers (France) next spring for VRP2013,  a one-week, full-immersion institute gathering Ph.D. students and young researchers working on the field of vehicle routing. 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. EU/ME will sponsor one or two students, with a financial support of 1000€.

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.
