The workshop is designed to bring together researchers working in various areas of modern mathematical optimisation, to prompt an exchange of ideas between Australian and overseas researchers. The workshop is focussed on the modern aspects of optimisation that involve deep interplay between computational problems and pure mathematical questions.
