Georgia Tech-Savannah Hosts Learners & Leaders Breakfast Series on Evacuation Planning

Feb 22, 2020

Georgia Tech-Savannah is set to host a “Learners and Leaders” breakfast series on Wednesday, February 19th to discuss how complex factors help determine the best way to execute evacuations. Pascal Van Hentenryck, a professor in the Georgia Tech H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial Systems Engineering, will lead this discussion.

Van Hentenryck’s research in evacuations has led to the design and implementation of novel planning and scheduling algorithms that scale to large cities and disasters. Van Hentenryck will share his research, showing its impact on decision making, and how Savannah can best use this information to plan for future evacuations.
