The main objective of this conference  is to provide a forum for reporting new results and exchanging ideas  in the area of variational analysis, optimization and mathematical finance. A wide range of topics will be covered with focus on the following subjects:

  • Variational and Convex Analysis
  • Continuous Optimization
  • Optimal Control Theory
  • Stochastic Programming
  • Risk Management and Quantitative Finance

The conference is dedicated to Professor R. Tyrrell Rockafellar on the occasion of his 80th birthday, and to honor his exceptional contributions to mathematics and particularly to variational analysis and optimization.

Distinguished scientists from around the world will join us in Limoges to give talks, participate in discussions, enjoy a rich social program and celebrate Terry’s birthday.
