"This Exploratory Workshop is oriented to the presentation of theory, algorithms and applications for the solution of mixed integer (convex and
nonconvex) onlinear problems (MINLP). This type of problems appears in numerous application areas where the modelization of nonlinear phenomena with logical constraints is crucial. Important sources of nonlinearity are the production planning in companies with complex technologies such as air traffic control agencies, electric power generation companies or chemical complex design, etcetera. Another important source of nonlinear problems are, for example, the product design in industrial environments, the analysis of financial products usually associated with risk dealing, the algorithms in the statistical field and artificial intelligence as artificial neural networks, or supporting vector machines.
This workshop is open to PhD and post-doc students interested in gaining expertise in this field, as well as to senior researchers that wish to reorient their research field. Lecturers are worldwide leaders on this challenging field of mathematical optimization."
