Venue

Cottbus

Cottbus is a university city and modern center of the Lusatia region of around 100,000 inhabitants. It is situated around 125 km southeast of Berlin on the southern edge of the famous Spreewald Forest and north of the developing man-made Lusatian Lake District. Spreewald Forest is a biosphere reserve of UNESCO where the river Spree branches out into hundreds of smaller streams making up a unique and mystical water maze in Central Europe. Cottbus is also one of the cultural centers of the Wends and Sorbs, a Slavic ethnic minority in Germany.

BTU Cottbus - Senftenberg

The conference is held at the Zentralcampus of BTU Cottbus - Senftenberg. The BTU was founded in 1991 as technical university of the federal state of Brandenburg with campuses in Cottbus and Senftenberg.

Travel Information

Getting to Cottbus

Berlin Brandenburg Airport (BER) is the best option to reach Cottbus by plane. From that airport you can reach Cottbus train station in at most 1.5 hours by train.
Other airports in the nearby area are Airport Leipzig/Halle (LEJ) and Airport Dresden (DRS). From these airports the train connections take longer and are more expensive than from Berlin.

Getting from Cottbus train station to BTU Cottbus - Senftenberg

The university campus and the Hotel Lindner can be reached easily via public transport in less than 15 minutes.

SIGOPT 2023 International Conference on Optimization

March 14-16, 2023, Cottbus, Germany

The Special Interest Group in Optimization (SIGOPT) was created in 1993 with the purpose of encouraging cooperation and communication between its members to enrich the scientific network of mathematical optimization. In this regard, a series of conferences has been established in order to conglomerate all the different aspects of mathematical optimization within one event of familiar atmosphere, and it is our pleasure to announce the 5th SIGOPT conference to be held during March 14 - 16, 2023, in Cottbus, Germany. The conference is scheduled to take place at the Zentralcampus of the Brandenburg University of Technology Cottbus-Senftenberg (BTU). Participants are invited to arrive in Cottbus on Monday, March 13, to join the welcome reception at the Lindner Congress Hotel in the evening.

Aims and Scope

The SIGOPT conference covers theory and practice in all branches of mathematical optimization, e.g.,:

  • Linear Optimization,
  • Discrete and Combinatorial Optimization,
  • Mixed-Integer Optimization,
  • Nonlinear Optimization,
  • Nonsmooth Optimization and Variational Analysis,
  • Multiobjective and Set-Valued Optimization,
  • Optimal Control and Infinite-Dimensional Optimization,
  • Machine Learning,
  • Application of Optimization in Real-World Problems.

The SIGOPT promotes the collaboration of all the different branches of mathematical optimization, so talks combining theory or methods from different topics are especially welcome. Young researchers are particularly encouraged to submit abstract proposals.
