Doing OR in Brazil

unicampDuring the first two weeks of May, I’ll be visiting the Institute of Computing (IC) at the University of Campinas (UNICAMP) in Brazil. That’s where I got my BS and MS degrees before coming to the US. I’ll be working on some fun integer programming stuff with my former Master’s advisor Cid de Souza. (Cid spent a year visiting the Tepper School while I was doing my PhD there.)

Despite being a CS department, IC hosts some of the OR people at UNICAMP (the others are spread around in the Math and EE departments). I’m looking forward to working with Cid again, visiting the city of Campinas and seeing some old friends. I’m wondering if I should stop by to see my mother, who lives 2 miles away from campus and whom I haven’t seen in almost 2 years…hmm…such a dilemma… :-)
