RMITOpt Workshop 2017

RMITOpt Workshop 2017

Translation of impact in the Optimisation Discipline

The Australian Research Council has recently made available guidelines for research assessment that include a strong inclination towards prioritising research that can be translated into valuable benefits to society. The objective of this workshop is to motivate the discussion around how research in the Optimisation discipline can be translated into meaningful impact in real-world problems, by showcasing successful initiatives that rely on optimisation-based solutions.

Please join us in this workshop for an opportunity to listen to presentations from members of industry and academia, share ideas, and enjoy plenty of opportunities for networking.

This event is free and was made possible by Enabling Capability Platforms funding initiative. RSVP is required due to limited number of seats. Please RSVP by 20/01/2017 (Fri COB). The link for registration is available here.

Confirmed speakers:

Dr. David Marlow – Australian Department of Defence
Dr. Keith Joshi/ Dr. Luke Mason – Biarri
Dr. Simon Dunstall – CSIRO Australia

EU-Australia GEO-SAFE think-tank

November 22 – 23, 2016, RMIT University, Melbourne.

This workshop is an initiative of RMIT Enabling Capability Platforms (ECPs) and the European project GEO-SAFE (Geospatial based Environment for Optimisation Systems Addressing Fire Emergencies).

This event will launch an Australian Think-Tank offering a space and framework for such sustainable collaborations and exchange during our project. This think-tank will strongly interact with GEO-SAFE during the period of the project (2016-2020).

The aim of the workshop is to engage between academia and final users/stakeholders with the perspective to discuss more closely, for some selected research topics, about the real needs of final users and the gap between them and the current systems (when they exist) as well as to evaluate how to make future research outputs really useful (and used) and impactful.
For the first workshop of the think-tank, we have selected five topics:

  • GIS data and risk mapping
  • Early warning, preparedness and fire detection
  • Mitigation and fuel management
  • Efficient responses and initial attack
  • Evacuation

For more information please visit http://thinktank.geosafe.rmitopt.org/.

Workshop on Metric Bounds and Transversality (WoMBaT 2016)

The meeting will be held in Melbourne (RMIT City Campus, room 8.9.66) on 24–25 November.

The topics of the workshop include error bounds, metric (sub) regularity, Aubin property and calmness, transversality of collections of sets, subdifferential characterisations and applications of these properties to estimating the convergence of fundamental optimisation algorithms. Our keynote speaker is Professor Marco López Cerdá from the University of Alicante, Spain, who is visiting Australia in November.

For more information and for the list of confirmed speakers please visit our web page http://www.wombat.rmitopt.org/ or contact the organisers directly.

Prof. Andrew Eberhard (RMIT University),
A/Prof. Alex Kruger (Federation University Australia),
Dr Vera Roshchina (RMIT University).
