About ALEL 2014 -- 5-7 June 2014

This is the fifth edition of an International Conference in Optimization Theory and its Applications co-organized by the IMUS of University of Seville (Chair: Victoria Martín-Márquez) and University of Limoges (co-Chair: Michel Théra) in collaboration with University of Alicante and University Miguel Hernández of Elche. The first and fourth editions took place at University of Limoges, France, while the second was developed at University of Alicante and the third in Castro Urdiales, Spain.

The meeting will be hosted by the IMUS (Mathematical Institute of University of Seville) from 5th to 7th June 2014, two and a half days.

Aim and scope

The main goal of this meeting is to build a strong network in Optimization and Applied Analysis which connects researchers from Spain, France and other countries with the aim of promoting a broad exchange of information and new developments in the areas of convex and nonsmooth analysis, numerical methods and semi-infinite optimization, among others.
The schedule is built under a limited number of talks, with no parallel sessions and many discussions, including a poster session, particularly to give young researchers the opportunity to participate actively.


The Conference will be held in the IMUS venue, located on the Reina Mercedes Campus of the University of Sevilla, at a recently constructed (2013) building nemed Celestino Mutis.

 The registration desk will be at the entrance of the building (opened from 9:00 on Thursday 5 June) and the talks will take place in the main lecture hall at the ground floor.

In order to go to the Conference Venue at the IMUS building, take bus number 3, 6 or 34. All of them stop in front of the School of Computer Science building (Escuela Superior de Ingeniería Informática) just next to the IMUS building. Check out the map below.
