The SIAM Conference on Optimization features the latest research on the theory, algorithms, software, and applications of optimization. A particular emphasis will be put on applications of optimization in AI and data science, quantum computing, health care, finance, aeronautics, control, operations research, and other areas of science and engineering. The conference brings together mathematicians, operations researchers, computer and computational scientists, engineers, software developers and practitioners, thus providing an ideal environment to share new ideas and important problems among specialists and users of optimization in academia, government, and industry

POEMA team including supervisors and ESRs also attended this conference and gave talks.
