X International Conference on Approximation ans Optimization in the Caribbean - XAPPOPT

Costa del Sol, El Salvador, March 6-11, 2011

The X International Conference on Approximation and Optimization in the Caribbean will take place at Bahia del Sol hotel in Costa del Sol, El Salvador, between March 6 and 11, 2011. The conference will focus on the interplay between Approximation Theory and Continuous Optimization, with emphasis on the following subjects:
· Approximation: wavelets, polynomial and rational approximations, splines, orthogonal polynomials, interpolation, asymptotic analysis, radial basis functions.
· Optimization: nonlinear equations and inequalities, continuous optimization, nonsmooth analysis, variational inequalities, equilibrium theory, vector optimization, stochastic optimization, critical point theory.
· Applications: financial markets, cooperative and non-cooperative games, engineering and energy modeling, pattern recognition, image restoration.
The Conference is the tenth of a series dedicated to research on Approximation and Optimization which takes place in the Caribbean. The series was jointly initiated by Humboldt University (Berlin), RWTH (Aachen) and Universidad de La Habana. Previous issues were held in La Habana, Cuba (1987 and 1993), Puebla, México (1995), Caracas, Venezuela (1997), Pointe-a-Pitre, Guadeloupe (1999), Ciudad de Guatemala, Guatemala (2001), León, Nicaragua (2004), Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic (2006), and San Andrés, Colombia (2008).

The conference will consist of contributed talks of thirty minutes each. We intend to have no simultaneous sessions (unless the number of accepted talks exceeds our expectations). There will be work sessions on Monday, March 7, Tuesday, March 8, Thursday, March 10 and Friday, March 11. On Wednesday, March 9, a full day excursion will take place. Detailed information on the excursion will appear in forthcoming announcements.

When ready, the full workshop program will be posted in the workshop site, and will also be included in forthcoming announcements.

The Conference will take place at Hotel Bahia del Sol, a seclude tropical
resort in Costa del Sol, about 60 km from Comalapa International Airport
and the capital city of San Salvador (less than one hour drive from the
airport), nested
between the Pacific Ocean beaches and the Estero de Jaltepeque lagoon. (see
