OVERVIEW
Optimization has long been a source of inspiration and applications for geometers, and similarly, discrete and convex geometry have provided foundations for many efficient optimization techniques. Combinatorics forms an intrinsic part of optimization, and there is a rich interplay between geometry and combinatorics. The intent of the workshop is to bring together geometers and combinatorial and continuous optimizers.
