*The Second World Congress on Global Optimization in Engineering & 
Science (WCGO-2011), July 3-7, 2011 Chania, Greece.*
http://www.ise.ufl.edu/cao/WCGO2011/

The second World Congress on Global Optimization (WCGO 2011) will be 
held in July 3-7, 2011 in Chania, Greece. A primary goal of this 
congress is to offer an international forum for researchers and 
practitioners in the field to exchange ideas and present original 
research work on the theory and applications of global optimization.

The six 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", "Frontiers In Global Optimization", "Advances in Global 
Optimization", and the First World Congress on Global Optimization took 
place at Princeton University in 1991, 1995, 1999, in Santorini, Greece 
in 2003, in Myconos, Greece in 2007, and Changsha, China in 2009, 
respectively.
