12th International Workshop on High Performance


Algorithmic convexity and applications

June 20 - 22, 2012, Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands


Modern mathematical optimization is firmly based on the interplay between convexity theory and algorithms. The scope of this workshop is to bring together researchers who work on recent trends and applications in convex optimization: 
  • Foundations of convex algebraic geometry.
  • Solving large scale semidefinite programs.
  • Applications in compressed sensing, combinatorial optimization, and quantum information theory. 
One special aim of this workshop is to provide a podium for promising young researchers in the field. For this we organize a special young researchers session and tutorial lectures by Alexandre d'Aspremont on "Large scale semidefinite programming algorithms".


Room E of the CiTG building (Civil Engineering and Geosciences) on the campus of the TU Delft: Stevinweg 1, 2628 CN Delft. The CiTG building is opposite to the EWI building which is the highest building on campus.
