Intended for advanced graduate students and researchers who wish to be exposed to a wide spectrum of topics in continuous optimization, the Summer School at ICCOPT-I will be run on Saturday, July 31, 2004 (full day) and Sunday, August 1, 2004 (half day). Tutorials on the following topics are being planned:

Registration fee for the Summer School is US$300, with payment methods to be announced. This fee will cover attendance at the six lectures, lecture notes, many meals (including the Conference banquet) and participation at the subsequent 3-day ICCOPT-I. Further, for students, the registration fee also includes up to 6 nights lodging between July 30 and August 4, 2004, in a single occupancy dormitory room with internet connections (bathroom shared with one other person). Here is information on checking in to the dorms. The registration fee is reduced for students who wish to arrange their own accommodation.

The conference is sponsored in part by the National Science Foundation. We expect to use some of this support to reimburse a portion of the School fee to those participants who are full-time graduate students, as certified by their department heads or thesis advisors. In order to get full consideration for reimbursement, you should register by July 1, 2004.

See the registration page to register and for fee details.
