UPDATE: In lieu of the outbreak of the novel coronavirus, the SIAM Optimization meeting in 2020 has been canceled. While we are disappointed in this outcome, we hope for the best for all affected parties. We also want to thank our minisymposium speakers, Jungtaek Kim, Shotaro Sano and Kevin Tee, for their support; we hope to be able to meet again soon.
The SIAM Conference on Optimization will take place during May 26-29, 2020 at Hong Kong Polytechnic University. The applied mathematics, statistics and operations research communities around the globe will meet for 4 days in an exciting series of minisymposia and plenary lectures ranging from black box methods to proofs of second order convergence to the use of quantum computing in optimization.
SigOpt research will be hosting a minisymposium during this meeting, with details provided below. Please reach out to us if you have questions about the session; additional information regarding the speakers and their talks will be posted here as we approach the conference. This session will be a unique opportunity to hear from optimization experts in industry from Asia and North America.
