[DMANET] International Workshop on Bi-level Programming (March 2016)

Call for abstracts: IWOBIP'16

The 1st International Workshop on Bi-level Programming (IWOBIP'16) will be held in Nuevo Leon, Mexico; from March 7th to 11th, 2016.

The main motivation for hosting the IWOBIP'16 is to bring together a group of researchers working on this topic. Also, to attract young researchers and graduated students (master and PhD students) who are specializing in Bi-level Programming.

The IWOBIP'16 will consist of plenary lectures and mini-courses, both given by world-renowned researchers. Furthermore, research conferences presented by attendees of the event will be offered. Among the topics of interest of the IWOBIP'16 are: theory, exact methods, heuristics algorithms and interesting applications modeled as bi-level programming problems.

Confirmed Plenary Speakers
- Martine Labbé (Université Libre de Bruxelles, Belgium)
- Boris Mordukhovich (Wayne State University, USA)
- Vyacheslav Kalashnikov (Tecnológico de Monterrey, Mexico)

Confirmed Mini-courses
