Dear Colleagues,

the organizers would like to kindly inform you about the

Extended Deadline of Abstract Submission: February 18, 2015.

Thank you cordially for your valuable consideration.


Joint ORSC / EURO International Conference 2015 on Continuous Optimization

Shanghai, China, May 10-12, 2015


Continuous optimization is a highly interconnected field, having close
relationships to the other areas of OR, with scientific computing
and numerical analysis, and with numerous application areas. In order
to promote academic communication and cooperation between Chinese and
European researchers and practitioners in the field of optimization,
Operations Research Society of China (ORSC) and the Association of
European Operational Research Societies (EURO) will organize the Joint
ORSC / EURO International Conference 2015 on Continuous Optimization
during May 10-12, 2015. Dr. Xiaodong Hu (the President of ORSC) and
Dr. Gerhard Wäscher (Immediate Past President of EURO) are co-chairs
of the conference, Dr. Yuhong Dai (President of the Math Programming
Subsociety of ORSC) and Dr. Julius Zilinskas (Chair of EUROPT Managing
Board) are the co-chairs of program committee and Dr. Yanqin Bai
(Shanghai University, Shanghai) and Dr. Gerhard-Wilhelm Weber (Middle
East Technical University, Ankara) are the co-chairs of organization
