Third Sevilla MINLP Workshop



The III Sevilla MINLP Workshop will be a meeting to be held in Sevilla (Spain) on March 30 - 31, 2023

Mixed-integer nonlinear programming (MINLP) optimisation combines the modelling capabilities of mixed-integer linear with nonlinear programming into a flexible framework for dealing with a large variety of optimisation problems.

The MINLP Workshop brings together world-leading researcher in the field of mixed-integer nonlinear optimisation, and covers topics ranging from theoretical and algorithmic advances to industrial applications.

Plenary speakers:

  • Prof. Adrian S. Lewis (Cornell University, USA)
  • Prof. Martin Schmidt (Trier University, Germany)

Scientific committee:

  • Laureano Escudero Bueno (Universidad Rey Juan Carlos, Spain)
  • Justo Puerto Albandoz (Universidad de Sevilla, Spain)

Organizing committee:

  • Federico Perea Rojas-Marcos (Universidad de Sevilla, Spain)
