The First WASP Workshop on Large-Scale Optimization for Autonomy and Learning (LSOAL) will be held October 13-14, 2020 at KTH. It will be arranged as a hybrid conference, where those who prefer can attend via a Zoom Webinar. There will be a strict limit on the number of participants on-site.

We are looking forward to an exciting workshop where we can exchange ideas on large-scale optimization from theory to applications. The workshop is not limited to autonomy and learning, but we expect a strong interest in this area.



Bo Wahlberg (KTH) and Anders Hansson (LiU)
