We are organizing an informal working group on "Validated Optimization"
as part of the Fields Institute Thematic Year on Computational Challenges
in Science and Engineering. This meeting will allow researchers
in the area to generate and exchange ideas to impact current research
in the area, and to identify research priorities. We also hope to foster
interaction and cross-fertilization between validated optimization experts
and experts in "standard" optimization techniques.
This will be primarily an informal, colleague-to-colleague meeting
following the SIAM
Conference on Optimization and SIAM
Workshop on Validating Computing, although we will be happy to schedule
formal talks, as appropriate. The Fields Institute can provide office
space and meeting rooms for these purposes.
As an informal meeting, there will be no registration fee. Note also
that the Fields Institute will not be able to offer financial assistance
If you would like to participate please e-mail Tibor Csendes at firstname.lastname@example.org
or R. Baker Kearfott at email@example.com.
Please also fill out the registration
form, so that name tags etc. can be made.
A block of rooms for participants have been arranged in the hotels

Rooms must be reserved before April 26, 2002 to receive the Fields rate.
