Since 2017, I organize a series of courses about computer experiments which is part of the "Data Science Major" at Mines Saint-Etienne and Masters Program "Mathematics in Action" at Lyon University. The series is called "Mathematical Exploitation of Numerical Simulation" and it is made of 5 courses: design of experiments, kriging, local and global optimization, global sensitivity analysis. I teach the global optimization course (see below).
Metamodeling, surrogates, surrogates-based optimization
An overview of kriging for researchers, course written with Nicolas Durrande as part of the MNMUQ2019, Summer school on Modeling and Numerical Methods for Uncertainty Quantification, Porquerolles, France, Sept. 4 2019 (slides here as HAL course cel-02285439).
Introduction to Gaussian Process Surrogate Models, course given with Nicolas Durrande as part of the 4th MDIS Form@ter workshop, Clermont-Fd, October 16th 2017 (slides here as HAL course cel-01618068).
Surrogates and (mono-objective) optimization: a long-term relationship, course at the workshop of the Lorentz Center Surrogate-Assisted Multi-Criteria Optimization (SAMCO), Leiden, Holland, Feb 29 - March 4 2016 (slides here as HAL course cel-01281650).
