[DMANET] MODU2016 Second Announcement

(MODU2016 - http://www.modu2016.org/)

The Mathematical Optimisation Down Under workshop will be held in
Melbourne, 18th to 22nd of July 2016.
The workshop is designed to bring together researchers working in various
areas of modern mathematical
optimisation, to prompt an exchange of ideas between Australian and
overseas researchers. The workshop
is focussed on the modern aspects of optimisation that involve deep
interplay between computational problems
and pure mathematical questions. We especially encourage participation of
students and early career researchers.

Prof. Heinz Bauschke - University of British Columbia
Prof. Jonathan Borwein - University of Newcastle
Prof. Xiaojun Chen - The Hong Kong Polytechnic University
