Workshop "Constraints & Geometry"


The Ibex team and the MEA (French research group on set computation and interval methods) organize a workshop on constraints, intervals and geometry, to be held in Mine de Nantes on Monday 23th June.

Talks will be 20-30 minutes long, a lot of time (10-20 minutes) is kept on purpose for questions and discussions.

The workshop is open to everyone and registration is free. If you want to attend the workshop, just send us an e-mail (see contact below).


Nicolas Beldiceanu, Romain Benoit, Gilles Chabert, Nicolas Delanoue, Alexandre Goldsztejn, Luc Jaulin, Christophe Jermann, Sébastien Lagrange, Mehdi Lhommeau, Thierry Martinez, Dominique Michelucci, Ignacio Salas, Philippe Wenger
