Preliminary Meetingslightly shortened version of the slides: A preliminary meeting will take place on February 6h, 2017, at 16:15 hours in room MI 03.08.011. At this meeting, we will give you some information about the case studies courses in general, what to expect during the courses, this year's projects, important dates and the registration process. This is a joint meeting for both the "Case Studies Discrete Optimization" and the "Case Studies Nonlinear Optimization". If you cannot come to this meeting but would still like to take the course, some more information will be published here after the meeting. Please note that registration by March 5th, 2017 is mandatory! If you have any questions that are not answered here or at the preliminary meeting, please contact Fabian Klemm at klemmma.tum.de.
