Satellite workshop 14 November

On 14 November a satellite workshop of DDQC will be organized by Jiesen Wang, Liron Ravner and Michel Mandjes.

This workshop will be dealing with problems at the interface of statistics, decision & control and complex networks. Two typical instances considered are:

  • “Inverse problems”, in which model primitives are to be estimated from observations of a “secondary process”, the quintessential example being the estimation of a queue’s input process from periodic observations of the queueing process.
  • Revenue optimisation in systems with parameter uncertainty, the quintessential example being exploration-exploitation problems in setting with an unknown demand curve.

Through a set of talks by junior and senior experts, a broad spectrum of models and results will be presented, with a focus on techniques with provable performance guarantees. The speakers are:

  • Rui Castro (Eindhoven University of Technology)
  • Jiesen Wang (University of Amsterdam)
  • Liron Ravner (University of Haifa)
  • Alexandre Proutiere (KTH Royal Institute of Technology)
  • Shota Gugushvili (Wageningen University & Research)
