The 4th ISM-ZIB-IMI MODAL Workshop on Mathematical Optimization and Data Analysis

Date: 25th – 30th March 2019
Venue: The Institute of Statistical Mathematics, Tokyo, Japan

The Institute of Statistical Mathematics (ISM), the Zuse Institute Berlin (ZIB), and the Institute of Mathematics for Industry (IMI), Kyushu University, held the fourth workshop on mathematical optimization and related fields in late March 2019. This international workshop was held in conjunction with an annual cooperative research meeting on optimization.
