Scientific Program

Jump to: Monday, June 26 :: Tuesday, June 27 :: Thursday, June 29 :: Friday, June 30

General Information

For better clarity, breaks and meal times are not listed here. All days include a lunch and coffee breaks for participants of the scientific part. A complete overview of the conference schedule can be found here
There will be a special issue of Computers & Operations Research devoted to ISOLDE XVI (Impact Factor 5.159). Details will follow.

Informations for Speakers

We ask the speakers to familiarize themselves with the technology already during the break before the session, to transfer the presentation to the locally provided computer, and to contact their session chair. Each talk may not exceed 20 minutes with an additional discussion of at most 5 minutes.
