The project started at September 1, 2008 and the duration is 3 years.
Due to the rapid progress of business process automation and a pervasion of virtually all aspects of life by computers, computational solutions are needed for increasingly hard problems in a great variety of fields. However, the intractability of many practically important problems is a strong obstacle to the design of efficient solutions. Two major lines of research have been pursued in response to this situation:
