Friday@noon – Bavarian Workshop on Mathematical Optimization

Forschung | | Event

The workshop "Friday@noon" brings together scientists from Bavaria working on various topics in mathematical optimization, with a focus on finite dimensional optimization.

Venue & Travel Directions

The workshop will take place at the TUM campus in Garching-Hochbrück. We will meet at

Room BC1 2.02.01 (second floor)
Parkring 11
85748 Garching-Hochbrück

If you are traveling by car, you will find the TUM research campus at Garching-Hochbrück at the Autobahn A9 exit "Garching-Süd".

If you arrive at the Munich main station by train, take U4/U5 to "Odeonsplatz" or U1/U2 to "Sendlinger Tor" or any S-Bahn to "Marienplatz". From either of these stations, take the U6 towards "Garching Forschungszentrum". Exit at "Garching-Hochbrück".
