Final Program

Sixth SIAM Conference on Optimization

Held jointly for the first time with 1999 SIAM Annual Meeting, May 12-15, 1999, Sheraton Spirit of Atlanta Hotel, Atlanta, Georgia

Sponsored by SIAM Activity Group on Optimization

The field of optimization involves a powerful combination of theoretical analysis, algorithm and software development and scientific computing. The practical scope and utility of optimization continues to grow.

The Sixth SIAM Conference on Optimization will address the most important recent advances in linear, nonlinear, and discrete optimization. The meeting will feature the latest research in algorithms and software for the solution of optimization problems. It will also feature important applications of optimization in control, networks, manufacturing, medicine, finance, aeronautical engineering, operations research, and other areas of science and engineering. The conference will bring together mathematicians, operations researchers, computer scientists, engineers, and software developers. The gathering will provide an excellent opportunity for sharing ideas and problems among specialists and users of optimization in academia, government, and industry. The conference will be held jointly with the 1999 SIAM Annual Meeting, with overlapping sessions planned to encourage interaction among participants of both meetings.
