Continuous Optimization

[The event information is only available in English]

Continuous optimization models are important in context of physical models in all engineering sciences. In continuous optimization, as its name suggests, both the objective and the constraints are typically real valued functions. The field has been introduced and studied by many mathematicians since Euler, Newton, Lagrange and others. Due to its attractivity and essential role in modeling real-world scenarios, there have been substantial practically relevant developments in convex and non-convex as well as smooth and non-smooth optimzation settings.

In this workshop, three internationally recognized and leading scientists will introduce to state-of-the art theory and techniques from different areas of continuous optimization and discuss recent advances as well as research challenges. Besides theoretical developments, various application such as image processing, treatment Planning or machine learning will be presented.

These experts present:

  • Assoc. Prof. Aviv Gibali, ORT Braude College, Karmiel (IL)
  • Assoc. Prof. Pontus Giselsson, Lund University, Lund (SE)
  • Assoc. Prof. Shoham Sabach, The Technion, Haifa (IL)
