Optimization is an important technique in scientific computing. In imaging applications, one needs the recovery of enhanced images from noisy signals and the reconstruction of some unknown information from external measurements. In radar applications, one needs the determination of the position of certain targets from the knowledge of reflected wavefields. In these scientific applications, optimization is an essential component in the numerical algorithms for solving these problems. Due to the complexity of realistic applications, traditional optimization techniques are not sufficient to meet the need, and there is much on-going research in the past decade in order to tackle the challenges. While there are many successful approaches in literature addressing some of the difficulties in developing optimization methods for scientific computing, there are still many challenges and open problems.
This international workshop aims to provide a platform for researchers working on optimization and scientific computing to gather and enhance the interaction among them. In particular, the workshop gives a forum for researchers to present their latest achievements and explore new research directions. The workshop is also an opportunity for graduate students and postdoc to learn basic knowledge and overall development in the field.

Maps & Directions
The workshop sessions will be held in the Lady Shaw Building (LSB) in CUHK.
Follow the route indicated by the map below. Move the map around until you see a path connecting Yali Guest House and Lady Shaw Building. Be careful when crossing the road, as cars and shuttle buses often travel along the roads in this path.
Climb uphill along University Avenue until you reach a three-way intersection. Enter the glass doors on your right. Enter the lift at LG2/F of Lady Shaw Building. The lecture theatres are on 1/F. Turn left when you leave the escalator.
Take Shuttle Bus 1A / 1B / H near MTR Exit A - C or Shuttle Bus 3 near MTR Exit D. Get off at the second stop (Sir Run Run Shaw Hall).
The rooftop garden opposite Sir Run Run Shaw Hall is part of Lady Shaw Building. Go there and go downstairs the reach the Lady Shaw Building. Go to 1/F and turn left to go to LT1.
A taxi seats at most five. The 40-minute ride costs HKD 250 (about USD 30) if traffic is good. You can only take the red-colored taxi (city taxis). Passengers may request a receipt of payment upon arrival. The address of Royal Park Hotel is 8 Pak Hok Ting Street, Shatin.
At the Airport Bus Terminus, take Airport Bus A41. Get off at the bus stop in front of the Hotel. It should be the second bus stop after a long tunnel. Note that it is not the terminal stop for the bus, so ask the driver where to get off, or pay attention to the announcement and press the red button on the rail when it is the next stop. The frequency is 20 minutes and the journey takes 45-60 minutes depending on traffic conditions. (Please click here for bus stop information.)
