III Summer School, Portalegre, Portugal, 06-20 JULY-2014

Deadline for Teams Formation !!


09H00 (Anf. 2.01) - Optimization (I)-Introductory session, LP, ILP


Two Optimization sessions are aiming at theoretical subjects and practical issues, either from an introductory or advanced approach. These sessions are conjugating Optimization basics with the implementation of useful tools and SC models.

In the Introductory session, Linear Programming (LP), Integer Programing, Multiobjective Linear Programming (MOLP), related models and others of interest are focused.

14H00 (Lab 1.08) - Optimization (II)-Advanced session


This session will be focused on the uncertainty handling of the models at stake, being based on interval programming techniques.
Papers will be discussed and analysed regarding these particular tools either for LP models or MOLP models

Carla Henriques is Assistant Professor at the Institute of Accounting and Administration (ISCAC) of the Polytechnic Institute of Coimbra (IPC-PT) and responsible for several courses in the framework of the B.Sc. degrees of Management, Accounting and Public Accounting.


Since 1998, Carla Henriques has been developing research work in the fields of operational research and economy-energy modelling at INESC, a R&D Institute associated with University of Coimbra. The research work has been focused on the development of mathematical models for decision support in the study of economy-energy-environment-interactions. Her research interests have also included uncertainty handling through interval programming techniques in this kind of models. The results of this work have been the subject of several research projects and grants and have appeared as communications in international conferences (e.g. IAEE, SDEWES, WSEAS), publications in conference proceedings with refereeing, publications in book chapters (Kluwer International Series and Nova Publishers) and scientific journals with ISI impact factors (such as the European Journal of Operational Research, Energy, Renewable and Sustainable Energy Reviews, Journal of Systems Analysis Modelling Simulation and Journal of the Spanish Statistical and Operations Research Society).
