In recent years, optimization has gained recognition as a promising computational tool in a number of industries. In particular, nonlinear programming techniques are being used actively in the aerospace, automotive, and chemical industries. Nonetheless, there is a discernible gap between state of the art analysis and the software tools actually available for solving realistic problems. The complexity, size, and expense of realistic industrial problems further narrow the ability of industrial mathematicians to use optimization as often or as effectively as they would like. This minisymposium aims to acquaint applied optimization researchers with the problems, the current nonlinear programming practices, as well as the open questions and needs in the industries represented.
