The first seminar in Optimization and Systems Engineering was held on November 3, 2010, at Åbo Akademi University, Turku, Finland. Plenary speaker was professor Christodoulos Floudas from Princeton University, USA.

Prof. Floudas held the following two keynote presentations:

  • Deterministic Global Optimization: Advances in Theory and Applications
  • De Novo Design of Proteins and Protein-Peptide Complexes: Advances and Challenges

Professor Floudas is a world-renowned authority in mathematical modeling and optimization of complex systems. His research interests lie at the interface of chemical engineering, applied mathematics, and operations research. He is Professor of Chemical and Biological Engineering at Princeton University since 1994, and in 2007 he was further awarded the prestigious Stephen C. Macaleer ’63 Professorship in Engineering and Applied Science at the same university. He is the author of the textbooks, Nonlinear and Mixed-Integer Optimization (Oxford University Press, 1995), and Deterministic Global Optimization (Kluwer Academic Publishers, 2000), has co-edited several monographs/books and is the chief co-editor of the Encyclopedia of Optimization (Kluwer Academic Publishers, 2001 and Springer, 2008).
