After a busy day with plenty of talks, the participants enjoyed the conference dinner on a boat, cruising through the historic center of Berlin.
Congratulations to Xudong Li for winning the Best Paper Prize for Young Researchers in Continuous Optimization with his contribution "Exploiting second order sparsity in big data optimization". The three other finalists, Amal Alphonse, Yuxin Chen, and Damek Davis were also praised by the best paper Committee.
After a sensational opening ceremony, ICCOPT is underway! Plenary sessions brought to the forefront the latest developments in mathematical optimization. The Best Paper Session showcased four finalists who gave their talks. The result will be announced during today's Conference Dinner. The day ended with a lot of robust discussions during the poster session.
ICCOPT opened with a vibrant and active summer school with tutorials by P. Richtárik, J.-C. De los Reyes and T. Munson. The Welcome Reception is taking place right now in the Lichthof of TU Berlin -- you still have the chance to join!
On Friday, August 2 at 15:15, Prof. Ya-Xiang Yuan will give a Special Guest Lecture on "Efficient optimization algorithms for large scale data analysis" at WIAS Berlin. All ICCOPT guests who are already in Berlin are invited to join the lecture.Details
