Call for Papers
Krasovsky Institute of Mathematics and Mechanics of Ural Branch of Russian Academy of Sciences, Mathematical Programming Association and Ural Federal University named after Boris Yeltsin are to organize a conference titled "MATHEMATICAL PROGRAMMING AND ITS APPLICATIONS" in memories of prof. I.I. Eremin, which will be held in 2-6 March 2015 at some resort in close neighborhoods of Ekaterinburg. Conference scope traditionally covers a wide range of problems from continuous and discrete optimization, machine learning, operations research and applications.
Main conference focus is on theory and methods of mathematical programming and its applications. Both invited and oral talks are due to be given on recent results from continuous and discrete optimization, approximation theory, machine learning as well as in their applications from economics and medicine. Main conference tracks include:
1. Theory and methods of mathematical programming
Track covers frontiers in mathematical programming such as duality for classes optimization problems, their robustness, regularization, parametric analysis, infeasible mathematical programming problems and vector optimization. Special focus is also on efficient algorithms for optimization problems and their convergence.
2. Applications of mathematical programming
Track scope includes mathematical modelling in economics and operations research, database and software design for optimization problems, including using of parallel computing. Practical applications are encouraged of mathematical modelling in economics, management, design and finance.
3. Extremal problems of data analysis and discrete optimization
Track delivers results in optimization for machine learning, integer linear programming, scheduling, optimal cutting-stock problems, optimization problems on graphs
4. Optimization and approximation
Track considers mathematical programming problems in infinite dimensions, optimization in general spaces, problems between mathematical programming and optimal control, approximation theory and ill-posed optimization problems.
Registration process for the conference should include:
1. creation (or updating) an account on the conference web site http://mpa.imm.uran.ru; general information should provided for each author including: authors full name, affiliation and position, degree and academic title, postal address and e-mail for correspondence, author phone number;
2. uploading abstract manuscript via the conference web site (most preferable) or sending its files by the e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org before 16th January 2015. Manuscript files must fit the requirements given below.
Invitations will be sent with additional information once abstract manuscripts reviewing process is completed.
Conference abstract book is due to be published to the conference opening. Either one or two possibly full paged abstract manuscripts are prepared in LaTeX using the conference tex style (mpa2015.sty). Abstract manuscript content must have information presented in the following order: abstract title, authors initials and surnames, their locations and affiliations, e-mails, abstract content text and references. Use abstract manuscript sample (example.tex) and detailed description (instructions.tex) of commands usage from the conference style, which are provided in the link below:
It is obligatory to follow requirements for abstract manuscript file formats and their uploading process via the conference web site:
abstract manuscript should be provided in .pdf format for abstract viewing purposes at the conference web site. Once uploaded, abstract .pdf becomes available for viewing at "Abstracts" section. An item titled "The report for viewing on a site" can be used to upload manuscript .pdf during the abstract registration process
abstract manuscript files (.tex, .eps etc) must be zipped. The respective archive name should follow the first authors surname and initials (e.g., IvanovII.zip). Abstract manuscript .zip file must be sent using an item titled "The report, theses or archive for the paper edition" during the abstract registration process.
