Convex Optimisation and Beyond

 Jun 27 2014
 ICMS, 15 South College Street Edinburgh

Solving convex optimisation problems is the principal requirement in computational optimisation. Ever-increasing problem size, particularly as a result of the growing importance and scale of data analysis, is driving the development of novel techniques for solving convex optimisation problems using high performance computing systems. Further information about the workshop can be found here.
