Dear Colleagues,

I am working with Ignacio Grossmann, Vice Chair of Global Optimization for
the INFORMS Optimization Society, to organize one or more Sessions
Sponsored by the INFORMS Optimization Society for the INFORMS 2007 Annual
Meeting related to research on Nonconvex MINLP (theory, algorithms,
solution methods, applications, computational studies, etc.).  The INFORMS

If you have an interest, please submit to me via email author and
