Traveling Salesman, Strip-Packing, or Machine Scheduling are terms that may not (yet) mean anything to you. However, they hide well-known optimization problems that affect your everyday life. For example, when you are expecting a package and have agreed on a specific time for delivery. Others you have indeed solved yourself without knowing it. Whether it's the optimal cutting of cookies during the Christmas season or the time-saving coordination of activities in the household when laundry needs to be washed and dried, coffee needs to be made, and dishes need to be cleaned in a hurry...
You will find out what these problems are, and you will be able to experiment with solutions with the help of our demonstrators. Can you solve the problems as well as the computer? Successful puzzlers can expect a reward...
