•  Topics 

1. Nonsmooth optimization: various generalized derivatives for single and multi-valued mappings, optimality conditions, solution sensitivity. 

2. Variational inequalities and general equilibrium problems: General problem settings for unifying optimization-related problems and systems of problems, solution existence, stability (semicontinuity, Lipschitz or Holder continuity, differentiability) of solution sets. 

3. Convex analysis and convex programming: “Rough” convex functions, optimality conditions, regularity, properties of solution sets. 

4. Algorithms for variational inequalities, equilibrium problems and optimal control problems with phase constraints. 

5. Fixed point and coincidence point theorems and related topics with applications to optimization. 
6. Farkas-type results for systems involving DC (difference of two convex) functions and their applications convex/non-convex optimization problems.
7. Qualitative research on optimization problems, including equilibrium problems, bilevel and MPEC problems, convex/non-convex problems.   
8. Computational geometry.
