Description of the Labs

The goal of the labs is to exercise the topics presented on lectures.

On some labs you will receive homework assignment, which are implementation of an algorithm or a method solving some interesting combinatorial optimisation problem. In all cases, the solutions to homework assignments are submitted to UploadSystem where they are automatically checked and evaluated. There are no strict deadlines, however, you will be penalised by -1 points for each week after deadline. Completing all homeworks successfully is a mandatory requirement for the assessment. Moreover, we encourage you to solve the homeworks since in the practical test you will use algorithms implemented for the homeworks.
