Selected Presentations

I regularly speak at national and international research conferences as well as industry workshops. Most of the talks dealt with simulation-based optimization methods for adaptive production control, automatic forecasting methods for customer demands, machine learning methods, statistical learning methods and neural networks in industrial applications as well as modeling and simulation for production and logistics systems. Below, you can find a selection of talks in English and in German.
