2nd Call for Papers

in July 9-10, 2010, Aveiro, Portugal (http://www.europt2010.com/).

In this workshop the EUROPT’s 10th Anniversary will be celebrated.

This event will be a special highlight in both the community of Continuous
Optimization in theory, methods and applications and international
Operational Research (OR). There will be a high number of prestigious
Invited Speakers and Contributed Presentations. The workshop aims to provide
a forum for researchers and practitioners in continuous optimization and
related fields to discuss and exchange their latest works.

We kindly invite you to attend this International workshop organized by the
EURO Working Group on Continuous Optimization (EUROPT;
http://www.iam.metu.edu.tr/EUROPT) as a satellite meeting before the EURO
XXIV conference in Lisbon (http://www.euro2010lisbon.org/).

The workshop will be hosted by the University of Aveiro. Aveiro is located
about 60 Km to the south from Porto. The town is surrounded by a system of
marshlands that run 50 Km parallel to the sea and has famous channels where
moliceiro boats sail.

Aims and scope:
This meeting continues in the line of the EUROPT workshops, the first held
in 2000 in Budapest , followed by the workshops in Rotterdam  in 2001 ,
Istanbul  in 2003 , Rhodes  in 2004 , Reykjavik  in 2006 , Prague  in 2007,
and Remagen  in 2009.

The topics include, but are not limited to, the following: applications of
continuous optimization to combinatorial problems; complexity and efficiency
of optimization algorithms; convex and nonsmooth optimization;
complementarity and variational problems; derivative-free optimization;
global optimization; linear and nonlinear optimization; optimal control;
multiobjective optimization; robust optimization; semi-definite programming;
semi-infinite programming; stochastic optimization; large-scale
