Dear ladies and gentlemen,
the chairs of Operations Research (Prof. M. Lübbecke), Discrete Optimization
(Prof. A. Koster), and Technical Thermodynamics (Prof. A. Bardow) at RWTH
Aachen University are glad to announce the workshop
"MIXED-INTEGER NONLINEAR OPTIMIZATION METHODS FOR ENERGY SYSTEMS ENGINEERING"
taking place on March 9-10, 2015 in Aachen, Germany.
The OPTIMIZATION-BASED DESIGN OF ENERGY SYSTEMS generally leads to
mixed-integer nonlinear programming (MINLP) problems. In recent years, a
surge of interest in (non-convex) MINLP problems in the mathematical
optimization community produced remarkable algorithmic progress and
triggered new developments, in particular new implementations.
To benefit most from these advances, ENGINEERS AND MATHEMATICIANS should tie
up, each contributing their own expertise. Aim of this workshop is to bring
together researchers from both fields to learn about the latest work and to
The workshop consists of INVITED TALKS on recent work, complemented by THREE
KEYNOTES delivered by the following distinguished speakers:
- Prof. Dr. Zdravko Kravanja, University of Maribor, Slovenia
"Robust MINLP for solving complex synthesis problems"
- Prof. Dr. Jeffrey T. Linderoth, University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA
"Theory of MINLPs"
- Dr. Stefan Vigerske, GAMS Software GmbH, Zuse Institute Berlin
"MINLP Solver Technology"
Please see the workshop website at

The number of participants is limited to 60 and the fee amounts to 50 Euro
(incl. lunch and coffee & tea).
