PGMODays 2022 – Information – Abstract submissions

Dear Colleagues

We are pleased to invite you to the annual meeting of the Gaspard Monge Program for optimization and Operations research and their interactions with data sciences “PGMO days 2022”, which will take place on :

Tuesday November 29th and Wednesday November 30th, 2022

at EDF Lab Paris Saclay

PGMO is a program of Fondation Mathematique Jacques Hadamard, supported by EDF:

The PGMO days will be an opportunity to meet researchers both from academy and industry.

We will celebrate the 10th year anniversary of PGMO. There will be plenary talks as well as invited or contributed sessions on both days, and a special cocktail session on Tuesday evening at Ecole polytechnique to celebrate the anniversary.

The plenary speakers are:

Jérôme Bolte, University  of Toulouse 1 Capitole, France

Pierre Cardaliaguet,  Paris-Dauphine University, France

Gerard Cornuejols, Carnegie Mellon University, USA

Jacek Gondzio, The University of Edinburgh, Scotland, UK

Ivana Ljubic, ESSEC, France

Claudia Sagastizabal, University of Campinas, Brazil

Abstract Submissions

Submissions on all aspects of optimization and operations research, theoretical or applied, and their interfaces with data sciences, are welcome.

The leaders of PGMO projects are especially encouraged to propose presentations on the topics of their project.

Researchers willing to organize invited sessions should inform the pgmo board for  pre-approval and coordination, by writing at the earliest to

A typical invited session consists of one block of 3 talks of 30 minutes each. Longer invited sessions with 6 talks may also be considered if the topic justifies it.

The topics of this conference include :

✓continuous optimization (convex and non-convex, non-smooth…)

✓optimization of large systems (decomposition-coordination methods,…)

✓combinatorial optimization, integer or mixed programming

✓optimization under uncertainty  (stochastic and robust optimization)

✓global optimization (relaxation, approximation,semi-algebraic programing, stochastic algorithms…)

✓optimal control

✓PDE aspects of optimization (shape optimization, optimal transport, …)

✓game theory

✓interfaces of optimization and data sciences, including statistical learning

✓related fields : risk management, uncertainties analysis

✓specific industrial applications of optimization and operations research : energy management, transportation, telecom networks,…

Unlike in earlier years, the parallel talks will be scheduled both on the first and second days of the PGMO days, Tue 29th and Wed 30th. The first day, Tue 29th, will include the ceremony of the PGMO Phd Prize, more details will be found on the PGMO web site. We recommend to the organizers of invited sessions to inform the organizers of their preferences or constraints regarding the day on which their session will be scheduled.

Important dates

Monday 10th, October, deadline of abstract submission, both for contributed and invited talks.

Abstracts of one page should be submitted.

Via easychair :

Please follow the guidelines and latex or pdf template in pgmodays-process-abstracts-submissions to prepare your abstract.

Speakers of invited sessions should follow the same abstract submission procedure as for ordinary submissions, mentioning in addition the title of the invited session in the online form.

Organizers of invited sessions, after pre-approval,  should submit via easychair a one page file with the title of the session and the list of speakers + titles of talks.
