|Abstract Submission Date: Oct 31, 2003|
We invite mathematicians, computer scientists, engineers and economists, conducting theoretical researches or quantitative analysis for policy- and/or decision-making in the public and private sector, to attend.
Optimization methods for real-time and parallel processing; algorithm transformation and partitioning, scheduling, and resource allocation; related mathematical programming and development tools; optimization of implementation and computational costs, solutions for low-power consumption, design strategies and specific solutions to achieve best performance by joint optimization of algorithms and architectures are welcome.
Modeling of nonlinear processes, and related approximation/optimization methods will be given priority (e.g. modeling of nonlinear systems and/or dynamic processes, nonlinear control system and identification, nonlinear model reduction techniques, polynomial/ morphological/ hysteretic/statistical/Higher Order Statistics based/Gaussian Mixtures Model based/Hidden Markov Model based/fuzzy based/genetic algorithm based modeling of nonlinear processes, combined with approximation and optimization techniques to improve model accuracy).
Nevertheless, contributions covering issues related to agriculture, energy and environment, forecasting and projections methods, game theoretical models, labor market, macroeconometric modeling, microsimulation models, monetary policy, optimization models, regional modeling, sectoral issues, trade and regional integration issues are also welcome, especially if they are focused for developing countries.
