President of the ISoGO Prof. Sergeyev delivered lectures on global optimization at universities of Oxford, Cambridge and London Queen Mary on February 13-16.

S. Butenko, P. Pardalos, M. Resende will give lectures in ACDL 2018, Advanced Course on Data Science and Machine Learning, July 19-23, 2018.

The Founding President of the ISoGO Prof.  Panos M. Pardalos is among the most productive and influential authors in Operations Research and Management Science, see the paper by Merigó, J.M. and Yang, J.B., (2017) A bibliometric analysis of operations research and management science. Omega, 73, pp.37-48.

Two JOGO sessions will be organized during the INFORMS conference:
(i) SD71, October 22, 2017, 4:30 – 6:00 PM (right before the board meeting), 371F,!/4471/session/840
(ii) MA71, October 23, 2017, 8:00 – 9:30 AM, 371F,!/4471/session/844

Ya. Sergeyev and D. Kvasov published the book “Deterministic Global Optimization“, Springer, 2017. This book begins with a concentrated introduction into deterministic global optimization and moves forward to present new original results from the authors who are well known experts in the field.

P. Pardalos, A. Zilinskas and J. Zilinskas published the book “Non-Convex Multi-Objective Optimization“, Springer, 2017. Recent results on non-convex multi-objective optimization problems and methods are presented in this book, with particular attention to expensive black-box objective functions.

Prof. Ya. Sergeyev received Khwarizmi International Award, 13th Feb 2017. The Khwarizmi International Award is given annually by the Iranian Research Organization for Science and Technology (IROST) to individuals who have made outstanding achievements in research, innovation and invention, in fields related to science and technology.
