The conference will consist of invited plenary talks, parallel invited and contributed sessions.

The conference will address all aspects of optimization and its applications, including:

  • optimization theory and algorithm design
  • robust and stochastic optimization
  • variational inequalities and convex analysis
  • control theory
  • applications in image processing, finance, energy, operations management and engineering

The conference is organised by:
