Symposium on Modeling and Optimization

Webinars consist of applications and tutorials in mathematical modeling, estimation, and optimization. The sessions are hosted with WebEx with interactive chat, video conferencing, and remote computer desktop sharing. Each of the sessions is recorded and later posted online. Sessions are sponsored by the Computing and Systems Technology (CAST) division of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) as the WebCAST series.
