1st International Workshop on Bi-level Programming (IWOBIP’16)

The IWOBIP’16 will be held in Nuevo Leon, Mexico; from March 7th to 11th, 2016.

The main motivation for hosting the IWOBIP’16 is to bring together a group of academicians, practitioners and students working on this topic. Also, to attract young researchers and graduated students (master and PhD students) who are specializing in Bi-level Programming.

The workshop will take place at the main campus of the Universidad Autonoma de Nuevo Leon (UANL) located in the city of San Nicolas de los Garza in the state of Nuevo León, México from Monday 7th to Friday 11th, March 2016. The city of San Nicolas de los Garza is in the metropolitan area of Monterrey (state’s capital), making it easy and accessible for commuting within the area. The metropolitan area hosts more than four million people and offers a wide variety of tourist, recreational and cultural sites, which undoubtedly will make the stay more attractive during the workshop.

The IWOBIP’16 will consist of plenary lectures and mini-courses, both given by world-renowned researchers. Furthermore, research lectures presented by attendees of the event will be offered. There will also be a tour organized by the local committee for the integration and interaction of the participants to the event. It is important to mention that there will not be parallel sessions; only one daily main session will be scheduled because of the degree of specialization of the workshop. Among the topics of interest of the IWOBIP’16 are: theory, exact methods, heuristic algorithms and interesting applications modeled as bi-level programming problems.
