Welcome to the workshop "Convex Analysis, Optimization and Applications".

Aims and scope

This workshop was held on the occasion of the 65th birthday of Claude Lemaréchal. Its purpose is to gather researchers on the theory and practice of optimization. In the spirit of the work of Claude Lemaréchal, theory, numerical aspects and real-world applications will be considered. The areas addressed include convex programming, nonlinear programming, combinatorial optimization, and convex, nonsmooth and variational analysis.
