Set Optimization for Applications
Fifth International Conference on Set Optimization with Applications to Economics, Finance, Statistics and Game Theory

May 30 - June 3, 2022


Bilkent University, Ankara, Turkey

This is going to be a hybrid event; the details of in-person and online participation will be announced soon.

Please check here for COVID-19 updates at Bilkent University campus.


The conference is devoted to set and vector optimization, its applications in economics, finance, statistics and other areas as well as to convex and variational analysis for vector- and set-valued functions and to module extensions of variational analysis. We invite researchers working on these topics to present their results and discuss their points of view to set-valued optimization including equilibrium problems, variational inequalities, financial models using set-valued functions, (L0-)module structures, scalarization procedures and algorithmic methods for such models. We want to bring together people working on (theoretical) set(-valued) optimization and potential users from applied areas.
