About the workshop

Solving convex optimization problems, whether generated directly or as sub-problems when solving non-convex problems, is the principal requirement in computational optimization. Ever-increasing problem size, particularly as a result of the growing importance and scale of data analysis, is driving the development of novel techniques for solving convex optimization problems using high performance computing systems. This workshop will consist of several presentations by leading researchers, with the aim of promoting an exchange of ideas to advance the state of the art in this area.


Friday 8 June, 2018.
