Call for Abstract

The WCGO 2019 invites all researchers and practitioners working in areas related to nonconvex optimization and its applications to submit an abstract for consideration.

We encourage all types of contributions including theory, algorithms, and applications, in particular on emergent domains such as Data science, Big data, Robotics, ...

All accepted abstract will be published in an Abstract Book and will be orally presented at the conference.

Authors of an accepted abstract can submit their corresponding paper to one of special issues. 

Abstracts must be written in English and contain no more than one page. Each attendee is allowed to present one paper at the conference. Abstracts must be prepared in LaTeX format. See more details on the submission page of the conference  at
