FGP 2022

03/05/2022 a 06/05/2022

This meeting is the 20th edition of the French-German conference series initiated in Oberwolfach, Germany, in 1980. Since 1998, the conference has been organized under the participation of a third invited European country. This time it will be jointly organized with Portugal and it will take place at the University of Porto.

Since the very beginning, the purpose of this conference series has been to bring together researchers working in all different areas of Optimization and partic­ularly to encourage young researchers to present their work. Theoretical aspects of Optimization, in addition to applications and algorithms, will be covered. The conference is held every two years and usually brings together up to 150 mathematicians. Communications will be in the form of invited plenary talks, minisymposia, and contributed talks.


Conference topics

  • continuous optimization (smooth and nonsmooth)
  • optimal control and calculus of variations
  • optimization with PDE
  • differential inclusions and set-valued analysis
  • robust optimization
  • stochastic optimization
  • mixed integer optimization
  • multicriteria optimization
  • numerical methods for mathematical programming
  • optimization techniques for industrial applications
