The 2nd Alpen-Adria workshop on Optimization is planned as a satellite event to the SIAM conference on Optimization in Darmstadt
from May 16 to May 19, 2011.

Like the first workshop, it is planned as an informal get-together of mostly young researchers to present and discuss their current work.

The format of the workshop consists of a few plenary lectures, and contributed talks by the participants.

Here is the current list of plenary speakers:
  • Henry Wolkowicz (University of Waterloo) 
  • Jon Lee (IBM Research, Yorktown Heights, New York) 
  • Miguel Anjos (Polytechnique Montreal, Canada) 
  • Pablo Parrilo (MIT, Cambridge)
  • Kim Chuan Toh (National University of Singapore)
Here is a rough outline for the programme:
  • Thursday afternoon: first block of talks
  • Friday morning: second block of talks
  • Friday afternoon: third block of talks
  • Saturday morning: fourth block of talks
Social programme:
  • Friday evening: conference dinner
  • Saturday afternoon: hiking

We ask for a small conference fee of 50 Euro (to be paid upon arrival).
It covers the conference dinner and the hiking excursion.

In case you also plan to attend the Darmstadt conference, you might want to consider booking a flight between Klagenfurt and Köln/Bonn, which has good train-connections to Frankfurt am Main and Darmstadt.

Alternatively, there is a direct train from Klagenfurt to Darmstadt on Sunday, May 15: Klagenfurt departure at 10:31, arrival in Darmstadt at 19:22.

For accomodation, we recommend (in increasing order of cost):

Jugendherberge http://www.oejhv.or.at/quartier/9020/9020.htm
Pension Wachau http://www.pension-wachau.at/
Hotel Plattenwirt http://www.plattenwirt.at/
Hotel Lindner http://www.lindner.de/en/seepark_hotel_congress_spa_klagenfurt_woerthersee

which are all within walking distance of the university.

In case you plan to attend, please send the following information to anita.wachter@uni-klu.ac.at :

  • your expected arrival and departure dates
  • whether you plan to give a talk (if so, also provide a tentative title).
Note that presentations will only be considered if we receive your information by February 28.
As not too many slots for contributed
talks are available (and the talks are organized in a single track), we will possibly have to select among the submissions.
