An international conference on optimization will be organized under the umbrella of a research programme supported by the RTRA STAE Foundation in Toulouse on July 24-26th 2013.
The conference will address topics in unconstrained and constrained optimization, with and without
derivatives. It will be also the occasion to celebrate the many contributions made by Philippe L. Toint to the field. A half-day session related to the data assimilation ADTAO project (Algorithmes de nouvelle
génération pour l’assimilation de Données dans le système Terre Atmosphère Océan) will be organized. Contributed talks and posters related to the topics of the conference are welcome, and will be put into the programme as far as schedule constraints allow it.
