2.  Recent Developments and Trends in Deterministic Global Optimization,
by Panos M. Pardalos, Professor and Co-Director, Center for Applied Optimization,
Industrial and Systems Engineering Department,  University of Florida, USA
Abstract: Global optimization has been expanding in all directions at an astonishing rate during the last few decades. New algorithmic and theoretical techniques have have been developed, the diffusion into other disciplines has proceeded at a rapid pace, and our knowledge  of all aspects of the field has grown even more profound. At the same time one of the most striking trends in global optimization is the constantly increasing interdisciplinary nature of the field. This talk will cover the following topics: Nonconvexity and discreteness in optimization, DC (difference of convex functions) and monotonic optimization, multiquadratic programming and applications in biomedicine, multi-variable partition approaches and hierarchical (multi-level) optimization, optimization with massive datasets, and parallel computing.
