About the workshopSolving 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.
DatesFriday 8 June, 2018.
Keynote speakerProf Immanuel Bomze (University of Vienna, Austria).
LocationThe workshop will be held in Teaching Room 13, Medical School, Teviot Place, Edinburgh, EH8 9AG.
Medical School is a 15 minute walk from Waverley Railway Station.
Enter the Medical School courtyard by the entrance on Teviot Place.
Go straight across the courtyard and enter Doorway 3.
Go up one floor, following signs for the Biomedical Teaching Organisation (Office).
Registration will take place outside this office---by the elephant skeletons!
