The Department of Combinatorics & Optimization is proud to host the 19th conference on Integer Programming and Combinatorial Optimization (IPCO XIX), one of the most prominent international venues for research in the field. The conference will be held on the campus of the University of Waterloo from June 26-28, 2017. A two-day Summer School aimed at younger researchers and graduate students will precede the conference (June 24-25).
Local organization of IPCO 2017 will be managed by members of the C&O discrete optimization group. Waterloo has a long tradition when it comes to IPCO: the very first such conference was held in Waterloo in 1990, and C&O faculty members have played an active role in its development.
