Mixed-Integer Nonlinear Programming
Fueled by a variety of applications, interest in mixed-integer nolinear optimization has grown considerably over the past two decades. As the MINLP community grew during this time, a series of conferences and workshops were recently organized on the topic. These meetings draw academics and practitioners in discussions addressing theory, algorithms, computational implementations, and applications of MINLP.
Recent MINLP workshops took place in the U.S. and Europe:
The 2008 workshop on Mixed-Integer Nonlinear Optimization at the IMA was organized by
Jon Lee (IBM) and
Sven Leyffer (Argonne).
2009 workshop on Computational Issues in Mixed-Integer Nonlinear Programming was organized by
Andrew Miller at Bordeaux.
The 2010 European Workshop on MINLP was organized by
Pierre Bonami (CNRS),
Leo Liberti (Ecole Polytechnique, Palaiseau),
Andrew J. Miller (INRIA), and
Annick Sartenaer (Facultes Universitaires Notre-Dame de la Paix).
The 2010 Exploratory Workshop on MINLP was organized by
Laureano F. Escudero,
Marco A. Lopez, and
