Domain Decomposition Methods for Optimization with PDE Constraints

September 1–6, 2013

The conference on domain decomposition methods for optimization with PDE constraints will be held in Monte Verita, Ascona, Switzerland from September 1 to 6, 2013. The focus of this conference is on new, innovative techniques for the parallel solution of large scale constrained optimization problems where partial differential equations appear as an essential part of the constraints. Such problems include structural optimization and optimal control problems as well as inverse problems such as parameter identification. Invited speakers are:

Harbir Antil Georg Bock
Moritz Diehl Eldad Haber
Laurence Halpern Matthias Heinkenschloss
Ronald Hoppe Axel Klawonn
Rolf Krause Yvon Maday
Zdenek Strakos Gerhard Wanner

This conference is sponsored by the European Science Foundation, Centro Stefano Franscini, the Swiss National Science Foundation, the Department of Mathematics and the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Geneva, and the Università della Svizzera italiana.
