Message from the Chair

ICCOPT 2019, the Sixth International Conference on Continuous Optimization, will take place on the campus of the Technical University (TU) of Berlin, August 3-8, 2019. The ICCOPT is a flagship conference of the Mathematical Optimization Society (MOS), organized every three years.

ICCOPT 2019 is hosted by the Weierstrass Institute for Applied Analysis and Stochastics (WIAS) Berlin. It will include a Summer School (August 3-4) and a Conference (August 5-8) with a series of plenary and semi-plenary talks, organized and contributed sessions, and poster sessions.

World-renowned cultural and research institutions, a thriving creative scene and its rich history make Berlin a popular place to live, work and travel. The venue of the conference is located in the City West, one of the main commercial areas in Germany's capital.

We invite researchers and practitioners working in the field of optimization to join us and enjoy Berlin's convenient travel facilities, almost unlimited recreational possibilities, an open-minded and international atmosphere, and a lot of exciting mathematics in the summer of 2019! Please keep updated -- we will announce more information on this webpage soon.
