The Fifth International Conference on Advances in Global Optimization: 
Methods and Applications will take place during June 13-17, 2007 in 
Myconos, Greece. The four previous conferences on “Recent Advances in 
Global Optimization", “State-of-the-Art in Global Optimization", 
“Optimization in Computational Chemistry and Molecular Biology: Local 
and Global Approaches", and “Frontiers In Global Optimization” took 
place at Princeton University in 1991, 1995, 1999, and in Santorini, 
Greece in 2003, respectively.

Conference Goals

Bring together the most active researchers in theory, algorithms and 
applications of global optimization. Exchange ideas across discipline 
boundaries of applied mathematics, computer science, engineering, 
computational biology and chemistry, molecular biology, medicine, and 

Main Conference Themes

Conference topics include advances in:
• Deterministic methods for global optimization
• Stochastic methods for global optimization
• Distributed computing methods in global optimization
• Applications of global optimization in all branches of applied science 
and engineering, computer science, computational biology and chemistry, 
structural biology, medicine, and bioinformatics
