Short description of the event: 

The stream “Operations Research” introduces students, PhD students and young scientists to the scientific field of Operations Research. This year the stream will include lectures on Financial Mathematics, Optimisation and general applications of OR, but special attention will be given to Data Mining. Participants will get an experience of using the basic methods of data mining with help of the special software as well as practical implementation of such methods in social network analysis, crime data analysis, bioinformatics, data farming and Open Source Intelligence.

Lectures, seminars and workshops will be presented by prominent scientists from all over the world:
Prof. Sergiy Butenko (Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering, Texas A&M University, USA)
Prof. Boris Goldengorin (associate professor of Operations Department, University of Groningen, The Netherlands)
Dr. Erik Kropat (Institute for Theoretical Computer Science, Mathematics, and Operations Research, University of the Bundeswehr Munich, Germany)
Prof. Alexander Makarenko (Institute for Applied System Analysis of NTUU KPI, Ukraine)
Prof. Panos Pardalos (Industrial and Systems Engineering, University of Florida, USA)
Prof. Oleg Prokopyev (Department of Industrial Engineering, University of Pittsburgh, USA)
Dr. Elise Del Rosario, (Immediate Past President of The International Federation of Operational Research Societies; Committee on OR for Public Service, Philippines)
Konstantin Tretyakov, (Department of Computer Science, Tartu University, Estonia)
Prof. Gerhard-Wilhelm Weber (Institute of Applied Mathematics, Middle East Technical University, Turkey)

The stream is positioned as an ‘introduction to’, thus it is the best opportunity for young scientists to learn about the modern achievements of Data Mining and how to use it to solve real world problems. The stream is oriented to ordinary audience with the background in mathematical sciences.

The stream is a part of VII Summer School “AACIMP-2012” that will take place at the National Technical University of Ukraine “Kyiv Polytechnic Institute” (Kyiv, Ukraine), August 3 – 16, 2012. It will include lectures, seminars and workshops.
