About the Conference


The Ninth SIAM Conference on Optimization will feature the latest research in theory, algorithms, and applications in optimization problems. In particular, it will emphasize large-scale problems and will feature important applications in networks, manufacturing, medicine, biology, finance, aeronautics, control, operations research, and other areas of science and engineering. The conference brings together mathematicians, operations researchers, computer scientists, engineers, and software developers; thus it provides an excellent opportunity for sharing ideas and problems among specialists and users of optimization in academia, government, and industry.

Funding Agency

SIAM and the Conference Organizing Committee wish to extend their thanks and appreciation to the U.S. National Science Foundation for its support of this conference.
