MINLP Workshop 2020, June 11- 12

Mixed-integer nonlinear optimisation (MINLP) combines the modelling capabilities of mixed-integer linear programming with nonlinear programming into a flexible framework for dealing with a large variety of optimisation problems.

The MINLP Workshop brings together world-leading researcher in the field of mixed-integer nonlinear optimisation, and covers topics ranging from theoretical and algorithmic advances to  industrial applications. The workshop is held at the South Kensington Campus at Imperial College right in the centre of London.

The workshop covers all aspects of MINLP optimisation and its applications, including:

  • Algorithm and solver design
  • Applications in various fields
  • Convex and nonconvex MINLP
  • Optimisation theory
  • Deterministic and heuristic algorithms

Talks will be given in two parallel session by a mixture of invited and contributed talks. If you have questions, please contact minlp-2020@imperial.ac.uk

Submit an abstract

Submit an abstract to give an oral or poster presentation.

Contributed talks will be selected based from the submitted abstracts. There may be up to 20 slots available for contributed talks.  In the registration you can select the preferred presentation form (oral or poster), but keep in mind the limited number of oral presentations. Some of the accepted presentations may be, therefore, be assigned a poster presentation, despite the preference. However, there will also be  poster awards.

The abstracts are limited to 300 words, and should contain a brief summary of the work you wish to present.

The abstract submission has closed, but it is still possible to register to attend the event.

The submission deadline is December 16. 


Workshop registration will open in November and the deadline for registration will be in March 2020. The registration is free.

There is a variety of hotels close to Imperial College, and the college  is on walking distance from two tube stations.  All participants should book hotels or other accommodation on their own. Hotels can be booked through https://www.imperial.ac.uk/visitors-accommodation/local-hotels/


The best way to get to Imperial College is using the London Underground, and the closes stops are South Kensington station and Gloucester Road station. Trains coming to these stations are District line, Central line, and Piccadilly line (we recommend getting a hotel close to a tube station along one of these lines).


The Workshop is sponsored by FICO, GAMS, IBM, LocalSolver, MOSEK, The Optimization Firm, and Quantitative Sciences Research Institute (QSRI) at Imperial College London.
