We are organizing an international conference, next summer in Florence. Many constraints are to be taken into account: homogeneous streams, expected audience in the rooms, avoid scheduling a speaker when a co-author is giving a talk in another stream, optimizing the mix between in presence and remote talks,…. In this thesis we will build a mixed integer optimization model to take into account all of the constraints, if possible. Skills required are: optimization modeling and a basic knowledge of python. This thesis might be adapt to a Master Degree in Management Engineering, too
