SIGOPT 2020 International Conference on Optimization

Logo "Special Interest Group in Optimization"

Important: Information on Coronavirus

All members of the organizing committee have decided to hold onto the planned date (4th to 6th March 2020). Of course we observe the latest information by the Federal Government and the Robert Koch Institute. We have implemented several measures. The measures of the TU Dortmund University can be found here.

We ask all participants that are feeling sick to stay at home or in the hotel. Furthermore we ask you to avoid hand contact. We will have washbasins and soap in all rooms. Each participants will get a printout on hints to prevent illness and on the correct way to wash the hands. For further information see the plots by the Federal Centre for Health Education. The conference rooms will be cleaned on a regular basis. The wireless presenters will be cleaned after each speaker.

Scope and Topics

The SIGOPT conference covers theory and practice in all branches of mathematical optimization, e.g.,

  • Linear Programming
  • Discrete and Combinatorial Optimization
  • Nonlinear Programming
  • Mixed-Integer Non-Linear Optimization
  • Optimal Control
  • Stochastic Programming
  • Multiobjective Programming
  • Application of Optimization in Real-World Problems
  • Optimization on Manifolds
  • Robust Optimization
  • Convex Optimization
  • Conic Optimization
  • Machine Learning

The SIGOPT 2020 encourages the collaboration of the different branches of optimzation. So talks using ideas and methods from different branches are especially welcome.

Young researchers from all areas of optimization are especially encouraged to participate and to present their work. There will be a "Work in Progress" session. The conference will provide an excellent opportunity for exchanging ideas and for establishing contacts with colleagues in a friendly atmosphere.


  • Start: Wednesday 4th March 2020 at 9:00
  • End: Friday 6th of March 2020 at 14:00

You can combine our conference with a colloquium at the Department of Mathematics subsequent to the SIGOPT at Friday afternoon. Talks will be given by Ulrich Langer, Rolf Rannacher and Andreas Schröder. Further information can be found here.
