The summer school is open to final-year MSc students, PhD students, industry professionals, and researchers. Participants are expected to:

  • Know the basics of optimization (Linear Programming, KKT conditions: see references below!)
  • Have experience with a programming language suitable for implementing optimization problems (e.g., Python, Matlab, GAMS, Julia, …)
  • Bring your laptop with Matlab, MATPOWER and CVX installed for the exercise sessions. 
  • Experience with power system operation and/or electricity market clearing will make the sessions easier to follow.
  • Prepare a poster for the poster session on June 22 (please bring the printed poster on A0 format, 1189 x 841 mm). The poster should cover your current, past or future research. Industry professionals are expected to present their organization and/or field of work.
