Optimization Meets Telecommunications: A Marriage Made in Heaven

Professor Pascal Van Hentenryck, Brown University

Progress in telecommunication technologies (high-speed networks, GPS, RFIDs, sensors,) is creating new challenges and opportunities in optimization. It is no longer sufficient to focus on strategic planning; optimization systems must now take operational decisions quickly and under uncertainty.

This talk illustrates this paradigmatic change in a variety of application areas, presents the technology enablers, and some preliminary results illustrating the potential benefits.
