September 19-22, 2017. Prague
In honor of Jiří Outrata's 70th birthday
The international conference series “Parametric Optimization and Related Topics” was founded in 1985 and, since then, took place in different places: the latter seven conferences were held in Enschede (1995), Tokyo (1997), Dubrovnik (1999), Puebla (2002), Cairo (2005), Cienfuegos (2007) and Karlsruhe (2010).
Workshop on Variational Analysis and Optimization is an annual workshop organized by members of the Czech Academy of Sciences. It is an informal meeting of people interested in various topics of optimization theory. It combines a mathematical program in the afternoon/evening with a free program in the morning/early afternoon, when one can enjoy the beautiful scenery, go hiking, skiing or just discuss mathematics. Because of its location on the Czech-German border, it is suited mainly for Czech and German researchers.
The Winter School of Department of Decision-Making Theory is a popular meeting point of students and researchers from the department and other colaborating researchers from several Czech institutions as well as guests from abroad. It is held in the UTIA's chalet.
The program of the 2017 edition of the MTR Winter School will consist mainly of tutorial talks given by participants.
