The Optimization Laboratory (LabOtim) houses researchers, professors, graduate students, undergraduate and ongoing final projects involved in projects related on the optimization area. In LabOtim we conducted researchs in combinatorial optimization, such as the development of logistics and optimization models for the productive sector, the implementation and adaptation of heuristics and metaheuristics for problems modeled on graphs and the development of applications modeled by flows in networks, among others.

**Practice Areas:**

- Heuristics e metaheuristics
- Graph Algorithms
- Evolutionary Computing
- Combinatorial Scientific Computinga
- Transport Networks
- Localization
- Numerial Analysis
