New Faculty Seminar Series - Antoine Sauré

Thursday, January 26, 2017, 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m.

This seminar series was launched by the Telfer School of Management Research Office to promote its new professors. It represents an excellent opportunity for professors, students and community members to meet new faculty and to learn more about their research programs.

Please join us for a presentation by Antoine SauréImproving Access to Care through Enhanced Advance Patient Scheduling.

The seminar will discuss the development of capacity allocation methods based on approximate dynamic programming techniques as a systematic way of identifying effective booking guidelines for advance patient appointment scheduling problems. The main purpose of these methods is to reduce patients' wait times in a cost-effective manner. A particular focus will be on solution approaches and their challenges. Two applications based on British Columbia Cancer Agency operations will be reviewed.

A light lunch will be served.
