The Laboratory of Advanced Optimization (LOA) is an interdisciplinary laboratory with collaborators from many departments of UFRJ and other institutions. Its main objective is to develop mathematical programming models aimed at the energy sector. Furthermore, the LOA aims to: (i) provide a structure of computational and physical resources for research development; (ii) stimulate the use of open technologies; and (iii) support the formation of undergraduate and graduate students.

The laboratory is located at Block I of the Technology Center of UFRJ's campus at Ilha do Fundão, close to the Center for Energy Studies (CENERGIA)
