Mixed-integer nonlinear optimisation (MINLP) combines the modelling capabilities of mixed-integer linear programming with nonlinear programming into a flexible framework for dealing with a large variety of optimisation problems.

The MINLP Workshop brings together world-leading researcher in the field of mixed-integer nonlinear optimisation, and covers topics ranging from theoretical and algorithmic advances to  industrial applications.

The workshop covers all aspects of MINLP optimisation and its applications, including:

  • Algorithm and solver design
  • Applications in various fields
  • Convex and nonconvex MINLP
  • Optimisation theory
  • Deterministic and heuristic algorithms

Workshop Format:

The workshop consists of two plenary talks, presentations, discussions, and a quiz with prizes. During the workshop, the plenary talks, 2 min taster presentations, quiz, and discussions will all be live streamed. The full presentations will be made available before the workshop and you can watch them online when it best suits you. For more details and a list of speakers, please see https://optimisation.doc.ic.ac.uk/minlp-workshop-2020-june-11-12/ 

Preliminary schedule:

Day 1 (28 June) 3 – 4:30pm (UK time)

  • Opening of the workshop
