Call For Papers

The 23rd International Symposium on Mathematical Programming (ISMP 2018) will take place in Bordeaux, France, July 1-6, 2018. ISMP is the world congress of mathematical optimization where scientists as well as industrial researchers and users of mathematical optimization meet in order to present the most recent developments/results and to discuss new challenges from theory and practice. To illustrate the spectrum of topics, a classification attempt is reported in .

Plenary, semi-plenary, and keynote speakers for ISMP2018 have been announced on the conference website along with their provisional talk titles:
