About TOPS

The Trends in OPtimization Seminar (TOPS) is an interdepartmental seminar focusing on the broad range of optimization research happening at UW. TOPS talks are intended to be accessible to graduate students from various departments who have basic training in optimization. TOPS is typically held on Tuesdays at 4:00pm, although we do not meet every week. Please see the calendar of upcoming talks for details. Talks last about fifty minutes and are followed by an informal discussion time.
