Tseng Memorial Lectureship - Call for nominations 2024


Call for Nominations: Paul Y. Tseng Memorial Lectureship 2024

The Mathematical Optimization Society invites nominations for the Paul Y. Tseng Memorial Lectureship in Continuous Optimization. This prize was established in 2011 and will be presented for the fifth time at the International Symposium on Mathematical Programming 2024. The lectureship was established on the initiative of family and friends of Professor Tseng, with financial contributions to the endowment also from universities and companies in the Asia-Pacific region. The purposes of the lectureship are to commemorate the outstanding contributions of Professor Tseng in continuous optimization and to promote the research and applications of continuous optimization in the Asia-Pacific region.

The lectureship is awarded to an individual for outstanding contributions in the area of continuous optimization, consisting of original theoretical results, innovative applications, or successful software development. The primary consideration in the selection process is the quality and impact of the candidate's work in continuous optimization. See here for more details.
