Shmuel Zaks visits the IIiA


Invited by Josep Lluís Marzo, Director of the BCDS group, Prof Shmuel Zaks from Technion (Israel Institute of Technology) gave the talk "Optimization in optical networks" on July 11th. He presented some recent results for optimization problems that originate in optical networks: design and analysis of algorithms, complexity, approximability and on-line algorithms.

The cooperation between BCDS and Prof Zaks started in the framework of the COST action 293 GRAAL: Graphs and Algorithms in communication Networks. Prof Zaks is currently  a visiting researcher at IMDEA-Networks (Madrid Institute for Advanced Studies).
