Cases on optimization for scheduling and timetabling
Instituto Superior Técnico –
Scheduling and timetabling are planning activities of operations management in any organization. Central to an operation’s ability to deliver is the way its activities are planned. Planning is concerned with activities that attempt to reconcile the demand and the ability of the operation’s resources to deliver, thus bringing supply and demand together. This talk presents demand-driven research on this area, where research questions have been gathered from practice. Operating room scheduling, staff scheduling at emergency medical services and university course timetabling are cases to be shared. Focus is given to the operations research methods used in these cases. Open questions and opportunities for future work are also suggested.
Inês Marques is Assistant Professor at the Department of Engineering and Management (DEG) and Researcher at the Centre for Management Studies (CEG-IST). Her main research areas are operations research and operations management, focusing in planning and scheduling and in the management of health care services, where she has mainly developed decision support tools for improved operating room management. She has published in international journals in the areas of health care management and management science. She is member of the board of the European Working Group on Operational Research Applied to Health Services (EWG ORAHS) and of the European Working Group on Practice of Operational Research (EWG POR). She holds a degree in Mathematics Applied to Economics and Management (ISEG), a MSc in Operations Research and a PhD in Statistics and Operations Research (FCUL).

Workshop “Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango” – 2nd Edition
Title: Workshop Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango – 2nd Edition
Dates: October 25-26, 2022
Location: This workshop will be held in a virtual way
The topic of this workshop is metabolism in general, with a special focus, although not exclusive, on parasitology. Besides an exploration of the biological, biochemical and biomedical aspects, the workshop will also aim at presenting some of the mathematical modelling, algorithmic theory and software development that have become crucial to explore such aspects.
This workshop is being organised in the context of two projects, both with the Inria European Team Erable. One of the projects involves a partnership with the University of São Paulo (USP), in São Paulo, Brazil, more specifically the Institute of Mathematics and Statistics (IME) and the Institute of Biomedical Sciences – Inria Associated Team Capoeira – and the other involves the Inesc-ID/IST in Portugal, ETH in Zürich and EMBL in Heidelberg – H2020 Twinning Project Olissipo.
The workshop is open to all members of these two projects but also, importantly, to the community in general.
