2016-17: Optimization: Opening Workshop: August 29 - September 2, 2016

Workshop Information

August 29, 2016 - September 2, 2016

This workshop will be held at the Hamner Conference Center in Research Triangle Park.

The Opening Workshop will start with a day of tutorials on mathematical and statistical approaches towards Optimization, and their applications. The remaining days will feature presentations, discussions, formation of research working groups, and a poster reception.

Topics under consideration include: optimization under uncertainty; convex and semidefinite optimization; robust optimization sparse regression, and stochastic gradient descent; E/M & M/M algorithms; mixed integer, linear & nonlinear optimization; PDE-constrained optimization with uncertainties; statistical inverse problems; computation of high-dimensional covariance functions; and Bayesian optimization & computational decision analysis. Applications to be considered include: machine learning; image & signal processing, and compressed sensing; energy & power grids; and finance.
