Annual seminar 2011

December 08, 2011 Andreas Lundell Events

The annual seminar in Optimization and Systems Engineering at Åbo Akademi University, hosted by the OSE group, took place on December 8, 2011, in Axelia II, Turku. This year the OSE group was fortunate to be able to welcome professor Ignacio Grossmann from Carnegie Mellon University, USA, as the plenary speaker.

Prof. Grossmann held the following two keynote presentations:

  • Discrete and continuous optimization models for the design and operation of sustainable and robust process systems
  • Relaxations for convex nonlinear generalized disjunctive programs and their application to nonconvex problems

Professor Grossmann has received a great number of awards and honors and is one of the most cited authors in computer science and chemical engineering. He was included in the distinguished group “One hundred engineers of the modern era”, selected by the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) in 2008. Professor Grossmann also received an honorary doctorate from Åbo Akademi University in 2002.
