EUCCO 2018 - deadline for contributions is extended to June 15.
We would like to draw your attention to the 5th European Conference on Computational Optimization - EUCCO 2018, taking place in Trier in from September 10 - 12, 2018.
The scope of this conference series is quite broad as it aims to bring together scientists from a diversity of subdisciplines, such as computational optimization, algorithms and applications. The upcoming conference will place special emphasis on certain aspects of optimization, found in the focus sessions, while still keeping its more traditional focus on large scale optimization, optimization with partial differential equations, and numerical optimization algorithms and software. More information can be found at https://alop.uni-trier.de/eucco2018/
Registration is still open!
The annual Sparse Days meeting will be held at Cerfacs in Toulouse on 27th and 28th September 2018.
Registration for the Sparse Days is free but we ask people who are coming to register as soon as possible although the deadline is August 26th. Please complete the form on the website https://sparsedays.cerfacs.fr/en/ indicating whether you want to give a talk and whether you wish to attend the conference dinner. Although an emphasis will be on parallel aspects, any talk that has an association with sparsity is welcome. The length for a talk plus questions is 30 minutes although this is negotiable in either direction.
Information on accommodation can be found on the web page and a limited amount of free on site accommodation should be available for students. Students wanting to apply for this accommodation should contact Brigitte Yzel on email@example.com.

On behalf of the organizing committee, it is our great pleasure to invite you to the annual IEEE Congress on Evolutionary Computation (CEC), which is one of the leading events in the area of evolutionary computation. IEEE CEC provides a forum to bring together researchers and practitioners from all over the world to present and discuss their research findings on evolutionary computation.
IEEE CEC 2019 will be held at the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa, New Zealand’s national museum located in Wellington. Known as the “Coolest Little Capital”, Wellington combines big city chic with small village charm, and is a fantastic conference destination to boot. As the country’s cultural and creative hub, Wellington is home to industry leaders in high tech innovation and with the highest concentration of people employed in the information, communications and media sector. Connectivity between knowledge, technology and people drives Wellington’s vision to be Smart Capital.
Wellington is renowned for its friendly locals and impeccable service. Wellingtonians absolutely positively believe in their city and that pride transcends into the services they provide. It offers a wide range of cosmopolitan amenities in downtown that is safe, clean, pedestrian friendly. Pulsing with packed cafes, bars, boutiques, galleries, public art and museums, the country’s urban heart is a destination where all the best things in life come together.
Call for Papers
Papers for IEEE CEC 2019 should be submitted electronically through the Congress website at
Call for Special Sessions
Special session proposals are invited to IEEE CEC 2019.

IEEE CEC 2019 General Co-Chairs
The 2019 International Conference on Preconditioning Techniques for Scientific and Industrial Applications (Preconditioning 2019)
Date: July 1 – 3, 2019
Location: University of Minnesota, Twin cities
Preconditioning 2019 is the 11th edition of the series of meetings (one every two years) that address issues related to preconditioning methods for solving general sparse matrix problems in large-scale applications and in industrial settings. The conference is a forum for exchanging ideas on the latest developments in preconditioning techniques for sparse linear systems of equations, and to a lesser extent for eigenvalue problems. Preconditioning 2019 will mark the 20th anniversary of this series of conferences which started in 1999 at the University of Minnesota.
Additional details, including the list of invited speakers, the scientific committee, and important dates, can be found at the conference web-site:
