Energy companies witness a rapidly changing landscape: increase of intermittent, variable and spatially distributed power sources (wind, sun); expansion of markets and actors at all spatial and temporal scales; penetration of telecom technologies (smart grids). Those new factors impact the practice of optimization. From June 23 to 27, 2014, the International Thematic Week Smart Energy and Stochastic Optimization (SESO 2014) will be devoted to stochastic optimization and its applications to energy. The Week alternates courses, tutorials, scientific workshops, a PhD defense and an industry day; it is aimed at a mixed public, in academy and in industry. The academic organizers are ENSTA ParisTech and École des Ponts ParisTech, with the financial support of the Gaspard Monge Program for Optimization and operations research (PGMO) and of the French Energy Council (CFE). The participation is free, but registration is compulsory.
