EUROPT 2016 Workshop on Advances in Continuous Optimization

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce the 14th EUROPT Workshop on Advances in Continuous Optimization organized by Institute of Control and Computation Engineering at Warsaw University of Technology, Poland., July 1­2, 2016 Warsaw.

EUROPT2016 is the annual event of the EUROPT continuous optimization working group of EURO (The Association of European Operational Research Societies). This is the 14th such workshop and is held in collaboration with the 28th annual EURO conference to be held in Poznań on July 3­6 2016

Talks should be related to continuous optimization theory, algorithms, software or applications.

Plenary speakers confirmed:

Andreas Griewank, Humboldt University, Berlin, Gremany
Jiri Outrata, Institute of Information Theory and Automation, Czech Academy of Sciences, Prague, Czech Republic
Anatoly Zhigljavsky, Cardiff University, Cardiff, UK

Call for Abstracts (max two pages):

Abstracts submission is opened since February 1, 2016. Please sign up at to create your EURO account and submit your abstract. All accepted abstracts will be included in the Book of Abstracts. Please be reminded that the that the Deadline for Abstracts Submission is March 15, 2016.

Selected papers presented at EUROPT2016 will be considered for peer­reviewed publication in a special issue of Mathematical Methods of Operations Research.

Registration will open in due course, with the fees having been set as EUR 200 (Standard) and EUR 150 (PhD students) before May 15 2016.

Afterwards the respective fees will be EUR 270 and EUR 200.
