Reading Group

In the reading group, we discuss current and classical research papers or even book chapters. The emphasis lies on work on computational optimization and machine learning, but interesting stuffs from other fields are welcome. All participants can make recommendations for the reading list, from which one or more papers are selected for each meeting. Participants read the selected papers individually in preparation for the meeeting. During the meeting, the person in charge will give a short presentation summarizing the paper and lead a discussion about the paper during the meeting.
