Ulaanbaatar /MONTSAME/ With support from the International Center for Pure and Applied Mathematics (CIMPA), German-Mongolian Institute for Resources and Technology and the University of Versailles Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines (UVSQ) of France organized a summer course on ‘Data assimilation, optimization, and applications’ from July 5 to 10. 

The CIMPA summer course designed for postgraduates and researchers has been organized in developing countries since 1997. In Mongolia, the center organized the course in collaboration with the National University of Mongolia (NUM) and Mongolian University of Science and Technology (MUST) in 2013, with NUM in 2015, and with MUST and Khovd University in 2017.

This year, GMIT hosted the course in a hybrid online-classroom format due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The course had over 50 participants from France, Italy, Institute of Mathematics and Digital Technology of the Mongolian Academy of Sciences, NUM, MUST, Mongolian State University of Education, and GMIT, of which 10 attended the course in person. 

In the course, UVSQ Professors Laurent Dumas and Ts.Ider, Professor R.Enkhbat from the MAS Institute of Mathematics and Digital Technology, Professor Didier Aussel from the University of Perpignan and other professors and academics delivered lectures on ‘Global Optimization with piecewise convex functions’, ‘Introduction to optimization under uncertainty’, ‘Black box simulation based optimization: algorithms and applications’, ‘Reformulation and decomposition for integer programming’, ‘Optimization applications in economics and finance’, and ‘Multi leader follower games: recent theoretical advances and applications to the management of energy’.
