Call for paper

The WCGO 2019 invites all researchers and practitioners working in areas related to nonconvex optimization and its applications to submit works 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, ...

The conference proceedings will be published in the series Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing of Springer-Verlag and indexed by ISI Proceedings, DBLP, Ulrich's, EI-Compendex, SCOPUS, Zentralblatt Math, MetaPress, Springerlink.

Special Issues in SCI journals for the post-conference publication are planned, which include:
