MOPTA 2020 Update: After carefully monitoring the COVID-19 epidemic over the last couple of months and discussing with the rest of the MOPTA organizing committee and university officials, we have decided that the best and only responsible course of action is to postpone MOPTA 2020 to August 2021. This was by no means an easy decision. The tentative date for MOPTA 2021 is August 2-4, 2021.
The MOPTA-AIMMS competition is up and running and will proceed as planned but will be virtual.
Modeling and Optimization: Theory and Applications (MOPTA) aims at bringing together a diverse group of people from both discrete and continuous optimization, working on both theoretical and applied aspects. There will be a small number of invited talks from distinguished speakers and contributed talks, spread over three days. Our target is to present a diverse set of exciting new developments from different optimization areas while at the same time providing a setting which will allow increased interaction among the participants. We aim to bring together researchers from both the theoretical and applied communities who do not usually have the chance to interact in the framework of a medium-scale event.
