APMOD 2016

Optimization & Business Analytics

Brno, Czech Republic. June 8-10, 2016


Applied mathematical programming and Modelling (APMOD 2016) / Brno, June 8-10, 2016

APMOD (APplied mathematical programming and MODelling) is a series of conferences which was started in 1991 due to an initiative of Gautam Mitra at Brunel University/West London. This was then followed by events which were held in Budapest (1993), Brunel (1995), Limassol/Cyprus (1998), Brunel (2000), Varenna/Italy (2002), Brunel (2004), Madrid (2006), Bratislava (2008), Paderborn (2012), and Warwick (2014).

The 12th International Conference on Applied Mathematical Programming and Modelling (APMOD 2016) will be held in Brno, Czech Republic in June 8-10, 2016.

The conference accepts contributions from modeling, solving methods and software as well as applications of optimization. Furthermore, we are welcoming contributions from the field of data science as well as business analytics especially in relation to optimization. Relevant application areas include, but are not restricted to finance, transportation, supply chain planning and management, revenue management, energy and infrastructure. The models may be deterministic or stochastic - aspects considering robustness or disruption management are welcome. The methodological focus of the previous conferences has been on mathematical programming including stochastic programming, and more recently also heuristics, metaheuristics and simulation.

The conference will be held at almost the same time and in the same place as the 22nd International Conference on Soft Computing (MENDEL 2016).


OptiRisk specializes in optimisation and risk analytics and is renowned for its research and development of models and software systems in these domains. In the domain of Sentiment Analysis, OptiRisk is a partner of Thomson Reuters and RavenPack. The company has researched and published the Handbook of Sentiment Analysis in Finance and has developed the Sentiment Analysis Toolkit (SAT) which consolidates market data and news (meta) data and connects sentiment analysis to financial models. The other domain of specialisation of OptiRisk is Stochastic Optimisation; the company is a certified IBM partner (Optimisation Modelling) in the UK and in India. In the domain of optimisation the company has developed a family of Algebraic Modelling Language (AML) tools which are specifically designed for modelling and solving a wide range of stochastic programming and robust optimisation problems. The company has a track record of successfully delivering tailored applications in finance, logistics and energy systems.
