Best paper award in track: Advanced Supply Chain and New Technologies at the 7th IEEE Congress CIST’23

We are thrilled to announce that our paper, titled "Managing Occupancy Rates in a Hospital Emergency Department Combining Model-Based and Model-Free Control Approaches", and authored by: Danielle Nyakam Nya and Hassane Abouaïssa, has been awarded the prestigious Best Paper Award, track: Advanced Supply Chain and New Technologies at the 7th IEEE International Congress on Information Science and Technology IEEE CIST’23 held on December, 2023.

This paper addresses a critical issue in healthcare management – the effective management of the emergency department (ED) within a hospital. Instead of classical methods the works introduce an easy but efficient approach based on the formalism of model-free control. The obtained results show the effectiveness of the approach and demonstrate the adaptability and robustness of the system even in scenarios involving random demands and high-pressure care situations.
