Short courses

I have developed a short course on Vehicle Routing which was given at Università di Bologna (Italy), Universidad de la República (Uruguay), Université Libre de Bruxelles (Belgium), University of Pompeu Fabra (Spain), University of Minnesota (United States), University of Mississippi (United States), Università della Calabria (Italy), Nordic Summer Course on Applied Optimization and Modeling (Sandvig, Denmark), Molde University College (Norway), University of Vienna (Austria), Bilkent University (Turkey), Saarland University (Germany), Politecnica Poznanska (Poland), and University of Edinburgh (United Kingdom).

I have also created a course on Location Theory which was given at Universita Politècnica de Catalunya (Spain), RWTH Aachen University (Germany), and Molde University College (Norway).

Presentations at conferences

I have made several hundred presentations at scientific meetings and university seminars.
