Modeling and Optimization: Theory and Applications (MOPTA 2009)
August 19-21, 2009, Lehigh University, Bethlehem, PA
MOPTA 2009: Abstract Submission deadline: June 6, 2009
The conference is an annual event aiming to bring together a diverse group of people from both discrete and continuous optimization, working on both theoretical and applied aspects. Our target is to present a diverse set of exciting new developments from different optimization areas while at the same time providing a setting which will allow increased interaction among the participants. We aim to bring together researchers from both the theoretical and applied communities who do not usually have the chance to interact in the framework of a medium-scale event.
CONFIRMED PLENARY SPEAKERS INCLUDE
Ravindra K. Ahuja, University of Florida, Gainesville
Natalia Alexandrov, NASA
Paul I. Barton, MIT
John M. Mulvey, Princeton University
Pablo A. Parrilo, MIT
Robert Weismantel, Otto-von-Guericke Universität Magdeburg
