Robust Optimization (RO) is a modeling methodology, combined with computational tools, aimed at addressing optimization problems in which the data is uncertain and is only known to belong to some bounded uncertainty set. In this summer school we shall survey the main results of RO as applied to linear, conic quadratic and semidefinite programming, as well as linear integer programming.


The IASI/ADONET Robust Optimization Summer School 2007 will take place in the worldwide renowned mountain resort Cortina d’Ampezzo,  in the heart of the most beautiful peaks of the Dolomiti with a simple and relaxing environment, and the opportunity to enjoy one of the most renowned and scenic mountain resort. Cortina is located near the world famous city of Venice, where participants can spend the weekend.

The school will be held at Collegio delle Orsoline, an ex private school completely renewed. The Collegio provides excellent school facilities and a simple and warm hospitality. It is located in the woods at few minutes walking from the center of Cortina, towered by the Faloria massif, and the peace and the view that can be enjoyed are just inspiring and unique.


All participants will be boarded at the Collegio, which provides for them very convenient rates and a sober and comfortable environment for exchanging ideas and enjoy social activities. All rooms have private bathroom, direct telephone line and TV upon request; few apartments are available for families or groups.
