Acquis et tendances de la recherche sur les problèmes de tournées de véhicules

Christian Prins is a full professor at Troyes University of Technology (UTT, France) since 1999. From 2000 to 2005 he has served as head of the Industrial Engineering Department and, from 2008 to 2012, as head of the Industrial Systems Optimization Laboratory (LOSI). He received his PhD degree in 1988 and his habilitation in 1995, both in computer science from Pierre and Marie Curie University (Paris). After an industrial career as software engineer at EUTELSAT (Paris) from 1981 to 1990, he turned to teaching and research. He became an associate professor at IMA (Institute of Applied Mathematics, Angers, France) in 1990 and then at the Ecole des Mines de Nantes in 1993. Professor Christian Prins is interested in combinatorial optimization and operations research, with applications to production, logistics and transportation systems. His publications of the last decade are mainly devoted to vehicle routing problems. He has published 23 books and contributed chapters, 60 articles in peer-reviewed journals and presented communications in more than 180 conferences, including 63 with published proceedings. His h-index is 38 according to Harzing Publish and Perish (February 2015).

Hybridation des métaheuristiques avec la programmation mathématique, programmation par contraintes et apprentissage

El-Ghazali Talbi received the Master and Ph.D. degrees in Computer Science from the Institut National Polytechnique de Grenoble in France. He is a full Professor in Computer Science at the University of Lille (France) and head of the DOLPHIN team dealing with robust multi-objective optimization of complex systems (INRIA, CNRS, University of Lille). His current research interests are in the fields of metaheuristics, multi-objective combinatorial optimization, parallel and cloud computing, hybrid and cooperative optimization, and application to logistics/transportation, cloud computing, energy and biomedical. He is the founder of the conference META (International conference on metaheuristics and nature inspired computing) and co-founder of the META group (GDR RO, GDR MACS, ROADEF). Professor E-G. Talbi has to his credit more than 150 international publications and 5 books. His h-index is 35 (http://scholar.google.it/citations?user=hoQmzocAAAAJ&hl=it)

Two dimensional packing problems: From theory to applications

Silvano Martello is Professor of Operations Research at the University of Bologna. He is author of the books Knapsack Problems: Algorithms and Computer Implementations (Wiley, 1990) and Assignment Problems (SIAM, 2009, 2012). He is Editor-in-Chief of 4OR: A Quarterly Journal of Operations Research, and serves as an Associate Editor for numerous international journals in operations research and discrete applied mathematics. He has published about 150 papers, and edited seven books and fourteen special issues. His main research focus is on combinatorial optimization, with special emphasis on packing, routing and scheduling problems. He is Coordinator of the “European Chapter in Combinatorial Optimization” (ECCO, over 1,300 members), Vice-President (VP3) of the “Association of European Operational Research Societies” (EURO), and Senior Fellow of the Center for Management of Operations and Logistics” of the University of Texas at Austin. His h-index is 45, and his g-index is 98. Google Scholar profile : http://scholar.google.it/citations?user=o4a20zsAAAAJ&hl=it&oi=ao

Some Challenges on Integration of Decisions in Logistics

Stéphane Dauzère-Pérès is Professor at the école des Mines de Saint-étienne in its site of Gardanne, France. He received the Ph.D. degree from the Paul Sabatier University in Toulouse, France, and the H.D.R. from the Pierre and Marie Curie University, Paris, France. He has been Associate Professor and Professor from 1994 to 2004 at the école des Mines de Nantes in France where he headed the team “Production and Logistic Systems” between 1999 and 2004. Since March 2004, he is Professor at the école des Mines de Saint-étienne, where he headed the research department “Manufacturing Sciences and Logistics” from 2004 to 2013. His research interests broadly include modeling and optimization of operations at various decision levels (from real-time to strategic) in manufacturing and logistics, with a special emphasis on production planning (lot sizing) and scheduling and on semiconductor manufacturing. He has published 50 papers in international journals and has contributed to more than 120 communications in national and international conferences. Stéphane Dauzère-Pérès has coordinated numerous academic and industrial research projects, including 3 European projects, and also five conferences. In particular, he co-organized in 2010 the first edition of the International Workshop on Lot Sizing which was held in Gardanne, France. His h-index is 23 (http://scholar.google.fr/citations?user=Bl4aXkkAAAAJ&hl=fr&oi=ao).

When structure matters: putting Nonsmooth Optimization to a good use

Claudia Sagastizabal (http://www.impa.br/sagastiz) is an applied mathematician specialized in optimization with interests in both its theory and its numerical aspects. After finishing her undergraduate math studies in Argentina, Claudia moved to Paris where she obtained PhD and habilitation degrees at Paris I Panthéon-Sorbonne University. Personal reasons caused Claudia to reverse direction over the Atlantic Ocean about 15 years ago; she now lives in Rio de Janeiro.

Claudia has participated in industrial collaborations since the time of her PhD studies in the 1990s. Her first experience in this area, with Electricité de France (EdF), was so beneficial that it greatly influenced her career: Claudia’s theoretical research has been continuously enriched with insight provided by applications.
After graduating, Claudia became a permanent researcher at INRIA, the French Institute for Automatic Control and Computer Science. In Brazil, she had a research position at Eletrobras’ Electric Energy Research Center for five years. She is now an independent researcher with a visiting status at IMPA, Brazil's institute for pure and applied mathematics.

Claudia has taught optimization at various universities and “Grandes Ecoles” and advised PhD students and post-doctoral fellows in France and Brazil. In parallel with her academic activities, Claudia holds or has held consulting R&D appointments for companies such as EdF, Gaz de France-Suez and Renault in France; Robert Bosch in Germany; and Petrobras, Bovespa and Eletrobras in Brazil. Claudia participates in numerous synergistic activities. She was elected Council Member-at-large for the Mathematical Optimization Society for the period 2009-2013. She also served on program committees and/or organized thematic clusters on Convex, Nonsmooth and Energy Optimization at the most important conferences in the optimization area. She is an Associate Editor of the journal Energy Systems, and is currently Editor-in-Chief of the journal Set-Valued and Variational Analysis.

Claudia is co-author of the book “Numerical Optimization: Theoretical and Practical Aspects,” published by Springer. Her research interests lie in the areas of nonsmooth optimization, stochastic programming and variational analysis and are driven by real-life applications.
