20th Workshop on Future Research in Combinatorial Optimization

FRICO 2016, the 20th Workshop on Future Research in Combinatorial Optimization, took place from the 2nd to 5th of August 2016 at Osnabrück University.

The workshop was organized by the research groups Combinatorial Optimization, Theoretical Computer Science and Algebra and Discrete Mathematics.

FRICO 2017 > Trier

From our point of view the workshop was very successful and we thank our industry partners SIEMENS and INFORM for their support. We had many great talks and enjoyable get-togethers in the evenings. This year Annette Ficker got the award for the best talk at the workshop. Thanks to all participants again and see you in Trier next year!
