The Tenth International Conference on Optimization Techniques and Applications will be held in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia during 23-26 July, 2016. This conference series is known as the ICOTA conference series. It is an official conference series of Pacific Optimization Research Activity Group, which we call POP.
Due to the importance of optimization in a wide range of disciplines from engineering to economics, the First and Second ICOTA conferences were held at National University of Singapore, Singapore in 1987 and 1992, respectively. After which, ICOTA has become an important conference series run by its steering committee. The third ICOTA conference was held in Chengdu, China in 1995, and the fourth ICOTA was held in Perth, Australia in 1998. The fifth, sixth, seventh, eighth and ninth ICOTA were held, respectively, in Hong Kong, China in 2001, Ballarat, Australia in 2004, and Kobe, Japan in 2007, Shanghai, China in 2010, Taipei, Taiwan in 2013.
As a continuation of the ICOTA series, the goal of the 10th ICOTA is to provide an international forum for scientists, engineers, researchers, and practitioners to exchange ideas and approaches, to present research findings and state-of-the-art solutions, to share experiences on potentials and limits, and to open new avenues of research and developments, on all issues and topics related to optimization and its applications.
